Studies of Seamount Trails: Implications for Geodynamic Mantle Flow Models and the Geochemical Evolution of Primary Hotspots

1 June 2014
This special section is the outcome of a symposium held at the Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory November 17th, 1982, on the origin and evolution of seamounts. The topic for the symposium arose from the realization that although there is now a wealth of new ideas on the geology, geophysics, and geochemistry of the ocean floor, the study of seamounts has been relatively neglected despite their great importance to plate tectonics.

Proceedings of the Thirteenth Lunar and Planetary Science Conference

10 February 1983
The second part of the proceedings of the Thirteenth Lunar and Planetary Science Conference considers sedimentary processes and crustal cycling on Venus, a model for the formation of the earth's core, evidence of resurfacing in the lunar nearside highlands, the geology of Tethys, thermal stresses in planetary elastic lithospheres, the petrology and comparative thermal and mechanical histories of clasts in breccia 62236, lunar paleointensity data and its implications for the origin of lunar magnetism, and a model for the accumulation of solar wind radiation damage effects in lunar dust grains.

Lost City Meteorite

10 June 1971
The first stone to be recovered from the Lost City, Oklahoma, meteorite shower of January 3, 1970, was a 9.8-kg individual. It arrived in our laboratory on January 10, 1970, for preliminary examination and distribution to others for study.

Honoring George Kennedy

10 December 1980
This volume of the Journal of Geophysical Research was intended to be dedicated to Professor George C. Kennedy of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), to commemorate his 60th birthday. However, George died of cancer on March 18, 1980, and this volume must now commemorate his career.

Ironworkers Convention I, A Workshop on the Physics of Iron

Granites and Rhyolites

10 November 1981
The siliceous, potassic igneous rocks that contain more than ~69%SiO2, and typically 3.5-5.5%K20--the granites and rhyolites-- now follow basalts in their importance to earth scientists
