Description

The study of geomagnetism, particularly the study of the Earth’s magnetic vield is of increasingly critical importance to geoscientists. Geomagnetism presents various aspects of the magnetic field of Earth. After an overview, topics covered include magnetospheric interactions, secular variation, magnetic induction, archeomagnetism, reversals, excursions, oceanic and continental magnetic anomalies, and long-term behaviors of the magnetic field. The mathematical techniques for treating these phenomena are discussed in detail. The electric and magnetic properties of Earth materials, as well as basic experimental and observational techniques are also described.

Readership

Professional earth, solar and atmospheric scientists, along with other researchers and students who study the magnetosphere.

Quotes and reviews

"Albert Einstein used to say that a mystery of nature of geomagnetic field is the one of fundamental problems in physics. The volume of Masaru Kono is an important step toward assembly of this puzzle…The book is a valuable source of data usually dispersed in different publications, and it will be an obligatory reference for researchers and graduate students in the fields of geophysics and geology."--Pure Appl Geophys 2012 vol.169 pp.293-294

"In general, the book is logically organized, although the editorial work on chapter arrangement was certainly not a trivial task, since some of them demonstrate applicability of geomagnetism to geo- dynamics and geology, while other chapters are focused on the better understanding of the nature of geomagnetic field, and its current influence on the planet Earth. All chapters feature color figures of excellent resolution and legibility, very detailed maps of the geomagnetic field components, and relevant websites. The book is a valuable source of data usually dispersed in different publications, and it will be an obligatory reference for researchers and grad - uate students in the fields of geophysics and geology."--Pure and Applied Geophysics 169 (2012), 293-294
