INNER EARTH is one of 22 volumes in the Catalog of Anomalies published by The Sourcebook Project. The catalog provides an objective, unsensationalized compilation of anomalous phenomena, difficult to explain observations, and curiosities of nature in the fields of astronomy, biology, archeology, geophysics, and geology. The focus of this volume is the Earth's interior, which is revealed to us mainly through seismic signals, magnetic vibrations, and the flow of heat from great depths. Hundreds of kilometers below the surface lurk huge chunks of foundered continental crust and bizarre structures of unknown origin. Some of the topics covered include Anomalous Gravity Signals * Mid-Plate Volcanism * Mysterious Seismic Reflectors * Seismic-Velocity Discontinuities * Deep-Focus Earthquakes * Incompleteness of the Stratigraphic Record * Cyclotherms and Rhythmites * Exotic Terranes * Compass Anomalies * Earth-Current Anomalies * Problems with Paleomagnetism * and Polarity Reversals. INNER EARTH contains 52 illustrations and intriguing accounts collected from references including the Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Geological Society of America Bulletin, Journal of Geology, Journal of Geophysical Research, Nature, New Scientist, Science, and Scientific American to name a few. Over 600 citations are referenced and indexed five ways, by Time, Place, First Author, Source, and Subject. The indexes are cross-referenced to each entry in the book to aid the reader in locating original source materials and conducting independent research.
