Ghost Mountains and Vanished Oceans: North America from Birth to Middle Age
In an age of space exploration and modern technology, it’s easy to forget about the many riches and wonders that exist right under our own feet: the amazing and continuously evolving Earth. And yet we understand little of the very thing we’re trying to protect. In Ghost Mountains and Vanishing Oceans, geologists John Wilson and Dr. Ron Clowes narrate the heady tale of Earth’s coming of age. They explain that the vast jigsaw puzzle of geological plates that drifted together to form today’s continents continue to move, and what that means for the future. They also tell the story of the Lithoprobe, created in the early 1980s to help determine how the northern North American continent has formed over geological time from 4,000 million years ago to the present. Highlighted with informative sidebars and photographs, this lively book helps readers gain a better appreciation of the earth sciences and the terra firma that isn’t so firm after all.
