Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 49.

The papers presented in this monograph are based on presentations made at the symposium on "Slow Deformation and Transmission of Stress in the Earth" at the XIXth General Assembly Meeting of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics. The symposium was held on the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada on August 15th and 17th 1987.
The editors would like to thank the authors, reviewers and AGU staff who contributed to the publication of this monograph.
