Transform Plate Boundaries and Fracture Zones bridges the gap between plate tectonic theory and geodynamics, offering an assessment of the state-of-the-art, pending questions, and future directions relating to the study of transform plate boundaries and fault zones. The book is divided into two parts that present the main concepts of transform faults and fracture zones, terminology and nomenclature, and then worldwide examples of transform structures and fracture zones. Each chapter follows a consistent format that includes tectonic origin, a brief description of its evolution, present-day observations (e.g. structural geology, GPS, rheology); diversity of seismic activity, and related seismic hazards. With its multidisciplinary approach and thorough coverage of current research in plate tectonics, this book is a timely reference for a variety of researchers, including geophysicists, seismologists, structural geologists and others working in related fields, such as exploration geophysics and natural hazards. Includes a variety of case studies and examples of transform structures and fracture zones, putting the information into a broader context Addresses innovative and provocative ideas about the activity of fracture zones in a multidisciplinary and consistent manner Reviews basic (but up-to-date) concepts related to plate tectonics and more specialized research
