Mantle Convection in the Earth and Planets.

Read Book
Mantle Convection in the Earth and Planets. Gerald Schubert, Donald L. Turscotte, Peter Olson. Cambridge University Press, 2001 Mantle Convection in the Earth and Planets is a comprehensive synthesis of all aspects of mantle convection within the Earth, the terrestrial planets, the Moon, and the Galilean satellites of Jupiter. The authors include up-to-date discussions of the latest research developments that have revolutionized our understanding of the Earth and the planets. The book features a comprehensive index, an extensive reference list, numerous illustrations (many in color) and major questions that focus the discussion and suggest avenues of future research. It is suitable as a text for graduate courses in geophysics and planetary physics, and as a supplementary reference for use at the undergraduate level. It is also an invaluable review for researchers in the broad fields of the Earth and planetary sciences. 940 pages

Mantle. Compozition, Structure, and Evolution.

Read Book
Mantle. Compozition, Structure, and Evolution. Cambridge University Press. 1998 Edited by Ian Jackson. The Earths mantle plays a crucial role in a variety of geologic processes and provides researchers with important insights into the development of our planet. Interdisciplinary in scope, The Earths Mantle is a comprehensive overview of the composition, structure and evolution of the mantle layer. Striking a balance between established consensus and continuing controversy, the book provides researchers and graduate students with an authoritative review of this important part of our planet. Written by internationally recognized scientists from the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University, it draws on perspectives from cosmochemistry, isotope geochemistry, fluid dynamics and petrology, seismology and geodynamics, and mineral and rock physics. The hardback edition received excellent reviews. 592 pages.
Geodinamics. Second Edition.

Read Book
Geodinamics. Second Edition. Cambridge University Press 2002 Donald L. Turcotte, Gerald Schubert. First published in 1982, Don Turcotte and Jerry Schubert's Geodynamics became a classic textbook for several generations of students of geophysics and geology. The authors bring this text completely up-to-date in this second edition. Important additions include a chapter on chemical geodynamics, an updated coverage of comparative planetology based on recent planetary missions, and a variety of other new topics. Geodynamics provides the fundamentals necessary for an understanding of the workings of the solid earth, describing the mechanics of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building in the context of the role of mantle convection and plate tectonics. Observations such as the earth's gravity field, surface heat flow, distribution of earthquakes, surface stresses and strains, and distribution of elements are discussed. 456 pages.
Dynamic Earth. Plates, Plumes, and Mantle Convection.

Read Book
Dynamic Earth. Plates, Plumes, and Mantle Convection. Cambridge University Press 1999 Geoffrey F. Davies. Dynamic Earth presents the principles of convection in the earths mantle in an accessible style. Mantle convection is the process underlying plate tectonics, volcanic hotspots and, hence, most geological processes. The book summarises key observations and presents the relevant physics starting from basic principles. The main concepts and arguments are presented with minimal mathematics, although more mathematical versions of important aspects are included for those who desire them. The book also surveys geochemical constraints and mantle evolution. The audience for Geoff Davies book will be the broad range of geologists who desire a better understanding of the earths internal dynamics, as well as graduate students and researchers working on the many aspects of mantle dynamics and its implications for geological processes. It is also suitable as a text or supplementary text for upper undergraduate and postgraduate courses in geophysics, geochemistry, and tectonics. 458 pages.

Theoretical global seismology.

Read Book
Theoretical global seismology. By F. A. Dahlen, Jeroen Tromp 1998 - 1025 pages After every major earthquake, the Earth rings like a bell for several days. These free oscillations of the Earth and the related propagating body and surface waves are routinely detected at broad-band seismographic stations around the world. In this book, F. A. Dahlen and Jeroen Tromp present an advanced theoretical treatment of global seismology, describing the normal-mode, body-wave, and surface-wave methods employed in the determination of the Earth's three-dimensional internal structure and the source mechanisms of earthquakes. The authors provide a survey of both the history of global seismological research and the major theoretical and observational advances made in the past decade. The book is divided into three parts. In the first, "Foundations," Dahlen and Tromp give an extensive introduction to continuum mechanics and discuss the representation of seismic sources and the free oscillations of a completely general Earth model. The resulting theory should provide the basis for future scientific discussions of the elastic-gravitational deformation of the Earth. The second part, "The Spherical Earth," is devoted to the free oscillations of a spherically symmetric Earth. In the third part, "The Aspherical Earth," the authors discuss methods of dealing with the Earth's three-dimensional heterogeneity. The book is concerned primarily with the forward problem of global seismology--detailing how synthetic seismograms and spectra may be calculated and interpreted.As a long-needed unification of theories in global seismology, the book will be important to graduate students and to professional seismologists, geodynamicists, and geomagnetists, as well as to astronomers who study the free oscillations of the Sun and other stars.
