About this book

It has been 25 years since publication of the most recent English language summary of the geology of Japan. Geology of Japan offers an up-to-date comprehensive guide for those interested both in the geology of the Japanese islands and geological processes of island arcs in general. It contains contributions from over 70 different eminent researchers in their fields and is divided into 12 main chapters. Each chapter includes the unique contribution of an extensive aid to the written forms of geology-related names in Japanese.
