Item description for Proceedings of the XVth International Congress on Carboniferous and Permian Stratigraphy: Utrecht, 10-16 August 2003 by Theo E. Wong...
A compendium of papers first presented at the fifteenth annual International Congress on Carboniferous and Permian Stratigraphy, this book offers an overview of the latest research on rock formation that took placeover 250 million years ago. This ancient sediment, which provides much of the mineral resources we use today, is a key indicator of massive environmental shiftsthat occurred around the creation of the super-continent Pangea.
Organized thematically, the book covers a wide variety of topics, including the structural development of Carboniferous basins, the paleontology of those periods, and Carboniferous and Permian timescales and global correlations. As the contributors demonstrate, a better understanding of the evolution of the earth during the Carboniferous and Permian periods will not only help us find more mineral resources, but will also provide insight into important modern environmental questions.
