Author : Masaru Kono
Description:The study of geomagnetism, particularly the study of the Earth's magnetic vield is of increasingly critical importance to geoscientists. Geomagnetism presents various aspects of the magnetic field of Earth. After an overview, topics covered include magnetospheric interactions, secular variation, magnetic induction, archeomagnetism, reversals, excursions, oceanic and continental magnetic anomalies, and long-term behaviors of the magnetic field. The mathematical techniques for treating these phenomena are discussed in detail. The electric and magnetic properties of Earth materials, as well as basic experimental and observational techniques are also described.Self-contained volume starts with an overview of the subject then explores each topic with in depth detailExtensive reference lists and cross references with other volumes to facilitate further researchFull-color figures and tables support the text and aid in understandingContent suited for both the expert and non-expert
