Series: Developments in Precambrian Geology

Edited by Kent Condie, Elsevier's Developments in Precambrian Geology book series is designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of the Precambrian, including (1) chemical, biological, biochemical and cosmochemical evolution; (2) geochemistry and geochronology; (3) geophysical aspects of the early Earth; and (4) nature and evolution of the lithosphere. The Editor particularly welcomes integrated process-oriented and comparative studies that involve a combination of the above fields and/or demonstrate the effect of Precambrian evolution on Phanerozoic earth-system processes.
