Paleomagnetism

£49.99

Product description

The revolution in the earth sciences that took place in the 1960s changed the geoscientist's view of the planet. The theory of plate tectonics has shown the earth to be a dynamic system of shifting continental and oceanic lithospheric plates, and today, paleomagnetism sheds light on the processes by which mountains grow and mountain belts are formed, and allows refinement of geochronologic calibrations of fossil zones. Paleomagnetism is a cornerstone of plate tectonics, and is of central importance to the modern earth scientist.

The author has written this book at an introductory level suitable for students and addresses the step-by-step development of the paleomagnetic technique rather than attempting to discuss the full spectrum of research frontiers. Paleomagnetism - Magnetic Domain to Geologic Terranes will also interest the professional earth scientist wishing to grasp the basic principles of paleomagnetism
