About this book

This English translation of "Istoricheskaya Geotektonika" Contents: Origin of solar system and formation of planet Earth. Hadean 4.5-4.0 b.y.) stage of development; Early Archaean (4.0-3.5 b.y.): oldest sialic crust of the earth and problems of its formation; Middle and Late Archaean (3.5-2.5 b.y.): granite-greenstone terranes and granulite belts. Formation of mature continental crust; Early Proterozoic: partial destruction and restoration of Pangea; Early Riphean: new stage of destruction and commencement of fragmentation of Pangea I' Middle Riphean: continuation of destruction and break-up of Pangea; Late Riphean: Disintegration of Pangea into Gondwana and Laurasia. Origin of mobile belts against the background of development of plate tectonics; Vendian: consolidation of Gondwana and formation of mobile belts of Laurasia against the background of its disintegration; General features of the structural development of the earth's crust in the Precambrian.
