Summary:Field geology, is by definition, mainly concerned with the study of exhumed rocks. This volume contains 16 papers variously covering subduction-related accretionary wedges (B-type subduction), collisional belts and intra-continental convergence (A-type subduction), and lithospheric extension: divergent plate motions (rifting).00M/0095[1]Exhumation processes.
