Hardback
Providing an assessment of the state of knowledge on the Tasman Sea Basin, this text covers an up-to-the-minute assessment of the state of knowledge on the Tasman Sea Basin. The papers deal with the geological & geophysical aspects of Gondawa break-up (opening of the Tasman Sea), including hot-spot-trails, granite emplacement, paleomagnetism & rifted-marginal basins; Paleooceanography, including atmospheric & oceanic circulation patterns; Detailed examinations of oxygen-isotope records, distribution patterns & dissolution records of marine fauna, providing new paleoclimatic & paleogeographic information relating to geologically most recent evolutionary history of Tasman Sea Basin.
