This book is very useful. Ships from and sold by awesomebooksusa. Details left out from derivations can be found in the accompanying “Student’s Guide to Geophysical Equation”. Earth’s age, thermal and electrical properties; 5.

It does not point to advanced and still unresolved issues as a book as “Physics of the Earth” by Stacey and Davis does which I consider advanced but that lwry not kf goal. There are much better geophysical texts out there. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.

I have recommended the first edition It is clearly written, beautifully illustrated, and has the appropriate balance between mathematical and descriptive treatment. Loery research interests include rock magnetism, magnetostratigraphy, and tectonic applications of paleomagnetic methods.

Reviews from the 1st edition ‘Bill Lowrie is to be congratulated with this superb effort. I particularly like the brief historical accounts that accompany each chapter.
