The Mineralization and Structural Geology of the Porphyry Copper Deposits of Pakistan

The purpose of this review is to shed light on copper deposits found in different regions of Pakistan. The geological attributes of copper deposits have been considered with their tectonic context.

Abstract Seafloor highs can be grouped into three legal categories: (i) oceanic ridges; (ii) submarine ridges; and (iii) submarine elevations. The Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf

Zoogeography of the San Andreas Fault system: Great Pacific Fracture Zones correspond with spatially concordant phylogeographic boundaries in western North America

TLDR
It is demonstrated that four Great Pacific Fracture Zones in the Pacific plate correspond with distributional limits and spatially concordant phylogeographic breaks for a wide variety of marine and terrestrial animals, including invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

Interpretation of oceanic magnetic anomalies using a linear inverse technique

A direct magnetic interpretational technique has been developed and applied to oceanic magnetic anomalies. The method of interpretation computes a distribution of magnetization, within a specified

Plate-plume tectonics as an integrated mechanism of geodynamic development of the tectonosphere of Ukraine and adjacent regions

A progress of geodynamic processes in Early Precambrian of the Ukrainian Shield (USh) has been considered. Based on the known data on plate- and plume-tectonic processes of Phanerozoic the following

Tectonic evolution of the Southern Ocean between Antarctica, South America and Africa over the past 84Ma

 An improved method has been developed for carrying out 2-plate reconstructions, in which fracture zone locations are fitted to synthetic flowlines and magnetic anomaly picks are rotated and fitted

Mantle plumes and their interactions

Hotspots are regions of intraplate volcanism or especially strong volcanism along plate boundaries, and many of them are likely caused by underlying mantle plumes – localized hot upwellings from deep

Advances in Deformable Plate Tectonic Models: 1. Reconstructing Deformable Continental Blocks and Crustal Thicknesses Back Through Time

Deformable plate tectonic models have been demonstrated to be a useful technique for quantifying temporal variations in strain rate and crustal thickness within recent plate kinematic studies. Using
