This volume deals with the geology of the northeastern part of the Pacific ocean and the adjacent parts of the North American continental margin. The areal coverage is from the margin west to the Hawaiian Seamount chain, and south to the equator.

The volume comprises several major sections containing related chapters: regional bathymetry and tectonics (Chapters 2 to 4 and Plates 1 and 3); Spreading ridge systems (Chapters 5 to 11 and Plate 4); Hawaii-Emperor and other seamount chains (Chapters 12,13, and Plate 5); sediments of the northeast Pacific (Chapters 14 to 19, and Plate 2); and Pacific continental margins of North America (Chapters 20 to 28, and Plate 6). In the paragraphs below are a few introductory remarks about each chapter, which may help readers to find their way.
