  • Neutrino Geophysics

    These pages present a collection of recent papers primarily documenting the nascent science of neutrino geophysics. Most of the papers followed from talks given at Neutrino Sciences 2005: Neutrino Geophysics held at the University of Hawaii in December 2005. Several papers were solicited later in an effort to make the collection as comprehensive ...

    This second edition of the widely acclaimed Geophysical Fluid Dynamics by Joseph Pedlosky offers the reader a high-level, unified treatment of the theory of the dynamics of large-scale motions of the oceans and atmosphere. Revised and updated, it includes expanded discussions of * the fundamentals of geostrophic turbulence * the theory of ...

  • Potential Theory in Applied Geophysics

    'Potential Theory in Applied Geophysics' introduces the principles of gravitational, magnetic, electrostatic, direct current electrical and electromagnetic fields, with detailed solutions of Laplace and electromagnetic wave equations by the method of separation of variables. Behaviour of the scalar and vector potential and the nature of the ...

  • Quantitative Geophysics and Geology

    For the first time, a book is available that bridges the gap between geology and geophysics. Its integrative approach presents students and researchers in these disciplines with other methodologies as they try to understand the Earth's processes. The book covers the gamut of Earth Sciences, from earthquakes and seismic exploration to thermal ...

  • Waves in Geophysical Fluids

    Waves in Geophysical Fluids describes: the forecasting and risk evaluation of tsunamis by tectonic motion, land slides, explosions, run-up, and maps the tsunami sources in the world's oceans; stochastic Monte-Carlo simulations and focusing mechanisms for rogue waves, nonlinear wave models, breather formulas, and the kinematics of the Draupner ...

  • Geophysical Applications for Geotechnical Investigations

    This practical volume applies geophysical techniques to hazardous waste site investigations, highway bridge foundations, and water quality. Seven peer-reviewed papers in a section on Surface Geophysics and Borehole Geophysics discuss: • in situ soil testing • measurement of engineering properties in rocks and sediments • ...

  • Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flows

    This volume collects a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows. Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives: in the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field - advection stetches and folds ...

  • Encyclopedia of Solid Earth Geophysics

    Consisting of more than 150 articles written by leading experts, this authoritative reference encompasses the entire field of solid-earth geophysics. It describes in detail the state of current knowledge, including advanced instrumentation and techniques, and focuses on important areas of exploration geophysics. It also offers clear and complete ...

  • A Field Guide to Geophysics in Archaeology

    Geophysics operations in archaeology have become well known through exposure on television. However, the technique is presented as the action of specialists and something of a mystery, where people walk about with strange contraptions, and results appear from a computer. This is not the case, however. Some scientific knowledge is needed in order ...

  • Geodetic and Geophysical Observations in Antarctica

    Due to their unique geophysical and geodynamic environment, both the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions are often utilized for geodetic and geophysical observations. This book is a collection of papers on various aspects of the scientific investigation and observation techniques of the polar regions at both temporary and permanent observatories. ...

  • Principles of Applied Geophysics
