Combines aspects of geomagnetism, such as archeomagnetism, tectonics, paleomagnetism, and dynamo theory, in an integrated framework, highlighting their interrelationships. Discusses the development and analysis of geomagnetic reversals in detail, emphasizing the role of geomagnetism in studies of the Earth's deep interior, with chapters on the history of the subject, the present geomagnetic field, the time- averaged paleomagnetic field, processes and properties of the Earth's deep interior, and the magnetic fields of the sun, moon, and planets. Includes examples of synthesis of various theories, and mathematical appendices. For observationalists and theoreticians in the field. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Our knowledge of the Earth's field has developed over many centuries. Traditionally, the different aspects of geomagnetism, such as archeomagnetish, paleomagnetish, and the complex mathematics of dynamo theory, have been studied in isolation from each other. The Magnetic Field of the Earth draws together these major lines of inquiry into an integrated framework to highlight their interrelationships and provide a more comprehensive understanding of the geomagnetic field and its application to investigations of our planet's deep interior. Thereticians and observationalists will welcome the volume's unique approach.About the Author:
