In the main this book is for those specialising in geophysics Consisting of paleomagnetixm than articles written by ca leading experts, this authoritative reference encompasses the entire fields of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism in a single volume. Springer Education No preview available – Back cover copy Understanding the process underlying the origin of Earth magnetic field is one of the greatest challenges left to classical Physics.

It describes in fine detail at an assessable level the state of the current knowledge and provides an up-to-date synthesis of the most basic concepts.

He has worked in such diverse fields as volcanology, sedimentology, and plate tectonics and has done fieldwork on 5 continents. Ring current Robust electromagnetic transfer functions estimates Rock magnetism Rock magnetism, hysteresis measurements Rock magnetometer, superconducting Runcorn, S.

Both fields have applications, pure and applied: His work has included dynamo theory and its connection with the Earth’s thermal history, modeling the Earth’s magnetic field from historical measurements, and recently the interpretation of paleomagnetic data. His work has included dynamo theory and its connection with the Earth’s thermal history, modelling the Earth’s magnetic field from historical measurements, and recently the interpretation of paleomagnetic data.

As such, it will be an indispensable working tool not only for geophysicists and geophysics students but also for geologists, physicists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and engineers. The magnetic record left in rocks is studied in Paleomagnetism. His work has included dynamo theory and its connection with the Earth’s thermal history, modelling the Earth’s magnetic field from historical measurements, and recently the interpretation of paleomagnetic data.

Review quote From the reviews: A very useful list of cross-references is provided at the end of each article, which makes it much easier to link together areas that are less familiar.

Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. As such, it will be an indispensable working tool not only for geophysicists and geophysics students but also for geologists, physicists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and engineers. Both sciences have applications in navigation, in the search for minerals and hydrocarbons, in dating rock sequences, and in unraveling past geologic movements such as plate motions they have contributed to a better understanding of the Earth.
