Encyclopedia of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism (Encyclopedia of Earth Sciences Series)

This reference encompasses the fields of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism in one quantity. either sciences have functions in navigation, within the look for minerals and hydrocarbons, in relationship rock sequences, and in unraveling prior geologic events resembling plate motions they've got contributed to a greater figuring out of the Earth. The ebook describes in tremendous element the present country of information and offers an updated synthesis of the main simple innovations. it truly is an quintessential operating software not just for geophysicists and geophysics scholars but in addition for geologists, physicists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and engineers.
