Paleomagnetism, Volume 73 - Continents and Oceans (Hardcover, 2nd edition): Michael W. McElhinny, Phillip L. McFadden Paleomagnetism, Volume 73 - Continents and Oceans (Hardcover, 2nd edition)

Paleomagnetism is the study of the fossil magnetism in rocks. It has been paramount in determining that the continents have drifted over the surface of the Earth throughout geological time. The fossil magnetism preserved in the ocean floor has demonstrated how continental drift takes place through the process of sea-floor spreading. The methods and techniques used in paleomagnetic studies of continental rocks and of the ocean floor are described and then applied to determining horizontal movements of the Earth's crust over geological time. An up-to-date review of global paleomagnetic data enables 1000 million
years of Earth history to be summarized in terms of the drift of the major crustal blocks over the surface of the Earth.
The first edition of McElhinny's book was heralded as a "classic and definitive text." It thoroughly discussed the theory of geomagnetism, the geologic
reversals of the Earth's magnetic field, and the shifting of magnetic poles. In the 25 years since the highly successful first edition of Palaeomagnetism and Plate Tectonics (Cambridge, 1973) the many advances in the concepts, methodology, and insights into paleomagnetism warrant this new treatment. This completely updated and revised edition of Paleomagnetism: Continents and Oceans will be a welcome resource for a broad audience of earth scientists as well as laypeople curious about magnetism, paleogeography, geology, and plate tectonics.
Because the book is intended for a wide audience of geologists, geophysicists, and oceanographers, it balances the mathematical and descriptive aspects of each topic.
* Details the theory and methodology of rock magnetism, with particular emphasis onintrepreting crustal movements from continental and oceanic measurements
* Outlines Earth history for the past 1000 million years, from the Rodinia super-continent through its breakup and the formation of Gondwana to the formation and breakup of Pangea and the amalgamation of Eurasia
* Provides a comprehensive treatment of oceanic paleomagnetism
* Provides a set of color pateogeographic maps covering the past 250 million years
* Written by two internationally recognized experts in the field

Lagrangian Analysis and Prediction of Coastal and Ocean Dynamics (Paperback): Annalisa Griffa, A. D. Kirwan, Jr., Arthur J.... Lagrangian Analysis and Prediction of Coastal and Ocean Dynamics (Paperback)
Annalisa Griffa, A. D. Kirwan, Jr., Arthur J. Mariano, Tamay OEzgoekmen, H. Thomas Rossby
R1,445 Discovery Miles 14 450 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Written by a group of international experts in their field, this book is a review of Lagrangian observation, analysis and assimilation methods in physical and biological oceanography. This multidisciplinary text presents new results on nonlinear analysis of Lagrangian dynamics, the prediction of particle trajectories, and Lagrangian stochastic models. It includes historical information, up-to-date developments, and speculation on future developments in Lagrangian-based observations, analysis, and modeling of physical and biological systems. Containing contributions from experimentalists, theoreticians, and modelers in the fields of physical oceanography, marine biology, mathematics, and meteorology, this book will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students looking for both practical applications and information on the theory of transport and dispersion in physical systems, biological modeling, and data assimilation.
