Special Publication 420: Magmatic Rifting and Active Volcanism Edited by T.J. Wright, A. Ayele, D.J. Ferguson, T. Kidane and C. Vye-Brown  List price: £ 120  |  Fellow's price: £ 60  |  Other societies price: £ 72

This Special Publication presents the latest findings on magmatic rifting and active volcanism, spanning the initiation of rifting through to seafloor spreading. The contributions have a particular focus on the East African Rift, and include new results from the international Afar Rift Consortium, case studies and review articles from leading scientists in the field.  Find out more at

Special Publication 431: Transform Margins: Development, Controls and Petroleum Systems Edited by M. Nemčok, S. Rybár, S.T. Sinha, S.A. Hermeston and L. Ledvényiová List price: £ 120  Fellow's price: £ 60  |  Other societies price: £ 72

The volume reviews current knowledge of transform margins and addresses fundamental questions for future research. Furthermore, the articles look at principal factors that influence the dynamics, kinematics and thermal regimes of continental break-up at transform margins and cover geophysics (bathymetry, seismic, gravity and magnetic studies), structural geology, sedimentology, geochemistry, plate reconstruction and thermo-mechanical numerical modelling.  Find out more
