by S. Warren Carey


After initially supporting continental drift, the late Australian geologist S. Warren Carey advocated expansion from the 1950s (before the .

Sam Warren Carey was one of the earliest geologists to support the idea of continental drift (plate tectonics) and his work on this led to him publishing this classic Expanding Earth theory book and one if not the original books investigating the Growing Earth theory. As it is rare it is very expensive. On the Origin of Continents and Oceans: A Paradigm Shift in Understanding.

Second, that the same chronology of magnetic epochs, extended now through the Ter­ tiary Period, was recorded in bore cores through ocean floor sediments.

The Expanding Earth theory is an attempt to explain the position and movement of continents (continental drift) on the surface of the Earth. The expanded earth theory (and plate tectonics) incorporates the appearance of new crustal material at mid-ocean ridges, but the process of subduction is largely absent in this model.

Developments in Geotectonics, 10: The Expanding Earth focuses on the principles, methodologies, transformations, and approaches involved in the expanding earth concept

Developments in Geotectonics, 10: The Expanding Earth focuses on the principles, methodologies, transformations, and approaches involved in the expanding earth concept. The book first elaborates on the development of the expanding earth concept, necessity for expansion, and the subduction myth. Discussions focus on higher velocity under Benioff zone, seismic attenuation, blue schists and paired metamorphic belts, dispersion of polygons, arctic paradox, and kinematic contrast.

The Earth Sciences followed this trend by proposing the principles of Plate tectonics. On the contrary, the concept of the Expanding Earth was not developed as a commonly accepted paradigm, but was an open field of original investigations, interpretations, and results. This innovative attitude is evident in the different interpretations of the Pacific and Indian oceans paleogeographical evolution; in the cosmological or incidental motor of expansion (still to be identified); in the different estimates of the Earth's radial expansion.
