Global Earth Physics

About The Product

Published through the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the AGU Reference Shelf Series.

the aim of this instruction manual is to supply, in hugely obtainable shape, chosen severe facts for pro and scholar good Earth and planetary geophysicists. insurance of issues and authors have been conscientiously selected to satisfy those objectives.
those volumes signify the 3rd model of the "Handbook of actual Constants. " a number of generations of stable Earth scientists have came upon those handbooks to be the main usually used merchandise of their own library. the 1st model of this instruction manual used to be edited by way of F. Birch, J. F. Schairer, and H. Cecil Spicer and released in 1942 by means of the Geological Society of the US (GSA) as precise Paper 36. the second one variation, edited via Sydney P. Clark, Jr., used to be additionally released by way of GSA as Memoir ninety two in 1966. on the grounds that 1966, our medical wisdom of the Earth and planets has grown drastically, spurred by way of the invention and verification of plate tectonics and the systematic exploration of the sun process.
