About this book

Evolution of Archean Crust and Early Life presents an integrated approach to the study of the evolution of the Archean lithosphere, biosphere and atmosphere, and as such it is a unique contribution to our understanding of the early Earth and life. The structural and geochemical make-up of both the oceanic and continental crust of the Archean Earth is documented in some case studies of various cratons, and the implications of the Phanerozoic plate and plume tectonic processes for the Archean geology are discussed in several chapters in Evolution of Archean Crust and Early Life. All chapters are process-oriented and data-rich, and reflect the most recent knowledge and information on the Archean Earth.

The interdisciplinary approach of examining the evolution of the Archean crust, oceans, and life that we adopt in Evolution of Archean Crust and Early Life sets it apart from previous publications on Precambrian geology. Evolution of Archean Crust and Early Life will be attractive to researchers in academia and in industry, and to senior undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty in earth and natural sciences.
