As the science of flow, rheology has an important contribution to make in solid earth geophysics, where in recent years attention has been been focused on the physical mechanisms of the Earths behavior. Examples are the study of the three-dimensional pattern of mantle convection and its rifting, and the nature of the interactions occurring at plate boundaries. The present volume, a translated and revised version of a Japanese work not previously available in English, brings together contributions from a variety of specialized fields: defects and plastic deformation in metals and oxides, mineral and rock deformation, deformation microstructures, and the applications of research in materials science to geological and geophysical problems. Extensive bibliographies will enable readers to follow up specific topics in the literature.
