Geophysics: A Very Short Introduction

Geophysics: A Very Short Introduction

Geophysics is the physics of the Earth. Central to the Earth Sciences today, it encompasses areas such as seismology, volcanism, plate tectonics, gravitational anomalies, and the Earth's magnetic field (present and past, as captured in rocks), all of which give clues to both the structure and the working of the Earth. In this Very Short Introduction, William Lowrie describ Geophysics is the physics of the Earth. Central to the Earth Sciences today, it encompasses areas such as seismology,...

    A short, highly technical introduction to geophysics, this reader felt sometimes overwhelmed by the detail packed in such a short punch, but enjoyed learning the basics, which I could comprehend, and picked out some fun facts (heat flow in older rocks is slower than in newer rocks beca...

    Heat flow varies greatly over the Earth?s surface depending on the local geology and tectonic situation. The estimated average heat flow is 92 mW/m2. Multiplying this value by the Earth?s surface area, which is about 510 million km2, gives a global heat loss of about 47,000 GW (a G...
