Title Fractal behaviour of the Earth system / V.P. Dimri, editor ; foreword by Prof. D.L. Turcotte
Published Berlin ; New York : Springer, ©2005


Description 1 online resource (xvi, 208 pages) : illustrations
Contents Fractals in Geophysics and Seismology: An Introduction -- Fractal Modeling of Complex Subsurface Geological Structures -- The Route to Fractals in Magnetotelluric Exploration of the Crust -- Regularity Analysis Applied to Well Log Data -- Electrokinetic Effect in Fractal Pore Media as Seismoelectric Phenomena -- Fractal Network and Mixture Models for Elastic and Electrical Properties of Porous Rock -- Scaling Evidences of Thermal Properties in Earth's Crust and its Implications -- Fractal Methods in Self-Potential Signals Measured in Seismic Areas -- Earth System Modeling Through Chaos
Summary Annotation The book fills a gap in the steadily expanding field of applying fractals to the earth science system. In this book the concept of fractal-scaling is applied to a variety of geophysical problems, illustrating what scaling laws really tell us and how they can used to solve various geophysical problems. Keeping in mind the broad range of readers interested in understanding earth's nonlinear dynamics, the authors address diverse recent advances related to fractals and scaling. These include broad applications of fractal theory in potential field methods, electrical and electromagnetic methods, geothermics and seismology, written by a panel of internationally known earth scientists from around the globe
