This book is a unique account of the geologic development of a young oceanicbasin and its adjacent marginal seas. Combining widely dispersed data and concepts with new investigations made especially for this book, it presents the reader with a detailed, thoroughly integrated study of the topography, igneous composition, structure, and sediments of the Atlantic. Effects of plate movements and changing climates upon water movements and contents of organisms and sediments are included. In addition, the potential economic value of ocean resources is carefully evaluated. A detailed bibliography complements the text.
