Description This reference encompasses the fields of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism in a single volume. Both sciences have applications in navigation, in the search for minerals and hydrocarbons, in dating rock sequences, and in unraveling past geologic movements such as plate motions they have contributed to a better understanding of the Earth.
The book describes in fine detail the current state of knowledge and provides an up-to-date synthesis of the most basic concepts. It is an indispensable working tool not only for geophysicists and geophysics students but also for geologists, physicists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and engineers.

Back cover copy Understanding the process underlying the origin of Earth magnetic field is one of the greatest challenges left to classical Physics. Geomagnetism, being the oldest Earth science, studies the Earth’s magnetic field in its broadest sense.
The magnetic record left in rocks is studied in Paleomagnetism. Both fields have applications, pure and applied: Consisting of more than articles written by ca leading experts, this authoritative reference encompasses the entire fields of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism in a single volume.

It describes in fine detail at an assessable level the state of the current knowledge and provides an up-to-date synthesis of the most basic concepts. As such, it will be an indispensable working tool not only for geophysicists and geophysics students but also for geologists, physicists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and engineers.
His work has included dynamo theory and its connection with the Earth’s thermal history, modeling the Earth’s magnetic field from historical measurements, and recently the interpretation of paleomagnetic data.
Medal of the American Geophysical Union for original research and leadership in geomagnetism. He has worked in such diverse fields as volcanology, sedimentology, and plate tectonics and has done fieldwork on 5 continents.

Review quote From the reviews: The editor’s goal is to cover the subject in fine detail at a level understandable to anyone with a general scientific education. The work includes alphabetically arranged entries written by specialists in the field.
Each entry has a short bibliography and cross-references. Written at a level accessible to anyone with a scientific education, geomaghetism authoritative and speedy reference is It is therefore a valuable working tool not only for geophysicists and geophysics students but also for physicists, geologists, geographers, atmospheric and environmental scientists and engineers.
Numerous diagrams, pictures, tables, formulas, and mathematical equations provide clarity to the discussions. A detailed page subject index and a series of color plates, mostly magnetic field maps, appear at the end of the volume. This work is recommended for college, university, and larger paleomagnetlsm libraries. I do believe that it is an indispensible library tool for graduates, academics and professionals alike involved in the application or study of geomagnetism and palaeomagnetism.
For those already involved in a particular aspect of this pleomagnetism discipline it provides a useful pathway to allied subjects.
A very useful list of cross-references is provided at the end of each article, which makes it much easier to link together areas that are less familiar.
