About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geodynamics Series, Volume 9.

After a decade of intense and productive scientific cooperation between geologists, geophysicists and geochemists the International Geodynamics Program formally ended on July 31, 1980. The scientific accomplishments in more than seventy scientific reports and in this series of Final Report volumes.

The concept of the Geodynamics Program, as a natural successor to the Upper Mantle Project, developed during 1970 and 1971. The International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) then sought support for the new program from the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU). As a result the Inter-Union Commission on Geodynamics was established by ICSU to manage the International Geodynamics Program.
