Tomography Books

  • Quantitative Methods in Fractography

    Presents the thinking a methodology employed today in evaluation fractographic features. 9 papers view recent developments in quantitative fractography and computed tomography in composites, as well as fractographic features in HY-100 steel and 2024 aluminum to the critical strain energy ...

  • Mantle Plumes

    The concept of mantle plumes, hot buoyant rock masses that rise in the mantle, is a key to understand intraplate volcanism in the framework of modern plate tectonics. Recent progress in instrumental, analytical and satellite technology enables scientists to verify the plume hypothesis with seismic tomography, isotope geochemistry and other ...

  • Arrays and Array Methods in Global Seismology

    In recent years, the increased availability and fidelity of broadband seismic instruments have effectively narrowed the gap between exploration and global seismic applications. Global seismologists are now able to take advantage of high-resolution, often exploration-based, tools to examine rock properties tens to hundreds of kilometers below ...

  • Seismic Motion, Lithospheric Structures, Earthquake and Volcanic Sources: The Keiiti Aki Volume

    Geophysicists use seismic signals to image structures in the Earth's interior, to understand the mechanics of earthquake and volcanic sources, and to estimate their associated hazards. Keiiti Aki developed pioneering quantitative methods for extracting useful information from various portions of observed seismograms and applied these methods to ...

  • Superplumes: Beyond Plate Tectonics

    This book provides a concise overview of our understanding of the entire mantle, its evolution since early differentiation and the consequences of superplumes for earth surface processes. The balanced, international authorship of the eighteen contributions has produced a state-of-the-science report on the emerging concept of superplumes and has ...

  • Neanderthals Revisited

    Recent years have witnessed exciting and important scientific breakthroughs in the study of Neanderthals and their place in human evolution which have transformed our appreciation of this group’s paleobiology and evolution. This volume presents cutting-edge research by leading scientists re-examining the major debates in Neanderthal research with ...

  • Subduction Zone Geodynamics

    Subduction is a major process that plays a first-order role in the dynamics of the Earth. The sinking of cold lithosphere into the mantle is thought by many authors to be the most important source of energy for plates driving forces. It also deeply modifies the thermal and chemical structure of the mantle, producing arc volcanism and is ...

  • Ionospheric Tomography

    The purpose of this monograph is both to introduce and review developed tomograhic methods for discovering 2D and 3D structures of the ionosphere and to discuss the experimental implementation of these methods. The theoretical part deals with the solution of the inverse problem of diffraction tomography for a wide range of properties of ...

  • Three-Dimensional Velocity and Vorticity Measuring and Image Analysis Techniques

    The need for three-dimensional measurements of velocity and at least its first derivatives is increasing in science as well as in technology. Moreover, velocity field measurements are necessary in many fields of fluid mechanics and related disciplines. In the first chapter of this volume recent developments in the traditional method of ...
