About this book

This is a major, definitive, landmark study of the young volcanoes of eastern Australia and parts of New Zealand. It deals with the rock types and origin of the volcanoes as well as the inclusions of the upper mantle and lower-crustal rocks found in the volcanic deposits. Fifty-nine authors contribute a wide range of chapters dealing with the significance of the volcanoes, the insights the area offers about the nature and origin of the earth's crust and the mantle beneath, and the geological evolution of eastern Australia and New Zealand over the last 70-80 million years. This will be an important reference book for geoscientists in general, but particularly to those involved in the fields of volcanology, geology, goechemistry, geophysics and tectonics.

First published in 1990.
