Continental Lithosphere: Deep Seismic Reflections

Overview

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geodynamics Series, Volume 22.

With the spirit of the Nibelungen lingering from the annual Richard Wagner Festival which had just ended, 200 scientists from 23 countries met at Bayreuth University, only a mile away from this historic and picturesque city, to renew their attack on old problems with Gaia.
