Book Chapter

Essentials of neighboring disciplines

January 01, 2005


Unraveling Earth history is a core business of geology. However, understanding cause and effect of past events requires input from other disciplines that can study processes directly and do not have to reconstruct them from incom plete historic records. This introductory chapter summarizes a very limited number of concepts from neighboring disciplines that are relevant in this respect. The list is woefully incomplete. I did not try to simply cover the most im portant concepts; rather, I selected those that are highly rele vant for the topic of this book yet not sufficiently important for geology at large to be routinely covered by introductory texts or courses in geology.
