Provides an updated overview of the geological and geophysical characteristics of the Mediterranean region by integrating new and pre-existing data on surface geology, seismic profiles and mantle tomography, both on land and at sea. The CD-ROM includes sixteen lithospheric transects across the Mediterranean region and the surrounding areas. Each transect is accompanied by an explanatory text with figures as well as by a series of clickable insets providing data in support of the interpretation shown in the transects. An extensive bibliography is included.
From the reviews: "It provides the current state-of-the-art on the geodynamic architecture and history of the Mediterranean region ! . The TRANSMED Atlas is a very interesting work for those who are working in the Mediterranean and are in need of a concise overview of the current ideas on the geodynamic evolution of this particular region. ! A great asset of this atlas is the extensive, up-to-date reference list. The atlas is very well illustrated. The CD-ROM is, moreover, very user friendly."
