Evolution of Earth and its Climate, Volume 10: Birth, Life and Death of Earth (Developments in Earth and Environmental Sciences)


More Description

The book reviews the current physical theory of Earth's global evolution, its origin, structure and composition, the process ofEarth's core formation, Earth's energy, and the nature of its tectonomagnetic activity. The book also deals with the origin of the Moon and its influence on our planet's evolution. Based on the integral positions of this theory, the book analyzes the issues of the origin of the hydrosphere and atmosphere, and the conception and evolution of life on Earth. The monograph also reviews the adiabatic theory of the greenhouse effect developed by the authors, and the effects of nitrogen-consuminging bacteria and of periodic changes in the precession angle on its climate. In particular, these effects cause the onset and periodicity of ice ages and a significant climate warming during the periods of supercontinent appearance (like Pangaea in the Mid-Mesozoic).

* challenges current thinking about climate change on the basis of sound geological data.

*helps the readermake informed decisions about Earth-process related problems.

* challenges the reader to critically analyze both theory and data
