Summary Annotation This "Encyclopedia of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism" is an up-to-date synthesis of the most basic concepts of Paleomagnetism and Geomagnetism. The volume will be of interest to undergraduate and first and second year graduate students and also non-specialists such as Geologists, Engineers, Biologists, Physicists, Mathematicians, who need to consult the book to find the most basic concepts of Paleomagnetism and Geomagnetism in one compendium. To make the book as accessible as possible to students and non-specialists, the mathematics has been kept to a minimum. The "Encyclopedia of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism" is a comprehensive collection of articles by practising geophysicists, mineralogists, physicists, mathematicians and historians to document the history and present state of the subject. Features Collects and presents the only comprehensive reference on geomagnetic and paleomagnetic topics, with subjects defined tightly by Geophysical section of AGU Develops both theory and methodology of geomagnetism and paleomagnetism, with particular emphasis on the most current topics of both disciplines First unified one-volume compendium on the two different disciplines of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism Field of interest Geophysics/Geodesy Target groups Geophysicists, geologists, physicists, atmospheric scientists, environmental scientists, engineers, mathematicians, biologists, undergraduates, and first and second year graduate students in science
