  • Introduction to Volcanic Seismologyby Vyacheslav M Zobin

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 180.00

    Volcanic earthquakes represent the main and often the only instrument to forecast volcanic eruptions. This book is the first monograph about seismicity in volcanoes. It describes the main types of seismic signals in volcanoes, their nature and spatial and temporal distribution at different stages of eruptive activity. The book begins with an introduction... more...

  • Geophysical Inverse Theory and Regularization Problemsby Michael S. Zhdanov

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 340.00

    This book presents state-of-the-art geophysical inverse theory developed in modern mathematical terminology. The book brings together fundamental results developed by the Russian mathematical school in regularization theory and combines them with the related research in geophysical inversion carried out in the West. It presents a detailed exposition... more...

  • Inverse Theory and Applications in Geophysicsby Michael S. Zhdanov

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 299.95

    Geophysical Inverse Theory and Applications, Second Edition, brings together fundamental results developed by the Russian mathematical school in regularization theory and combines them with the related research in geophysical inversion carried out in the West. It presents a detailed exposition of the methods of regularized solution of inverse problems... more...

  • Superplumes: Beyond Plate Tectonicsby David A. Yuen; Shigenori Maruyama; Shun-ichiro Karato; Brian F. Windley

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 127.04

    Forty years ago when plate tectonics was first discovered, there was a major shift in thinking in the Earth Sciences. Little was known at that time about the deep mantle because of the lack of knowledge about material properties, the absence of any seismic tomography or concepts such as mantle convection. Thus the theory of platetectonicswasbuiltonsurfaceobservationsandkinematicconstraints.Thetheory... more...

  • Observations of the Night Airglowby I. G. Yao

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Annals of the International Geophysical Year, Volume 25: Observations of the Night Airglow covers the results from systematic observations of the night airglow during the two and a half year period of the International Geophysical Year and International Geophysical Cooperation (July 1957 through December 1959). Airglow refers to light other than the... more...

  • Magnetospheric Research with Advanced Techniquesby R. L. Xu; A. T. Y. Lui

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 285.00

    Launches of several major magnetospheric research satellites (i.e., Polar, Wind, and Interball) set the scene for extensive multi-platform investigations of the Earth's plasma environment in the era of the International Solar-Terrestrial Physics Program. Exciting new results from this Program and the ongoing innovative advances to scientific instrumentation... more...

  • Discrete Inverse and State Estimation Problemsby Carl Wunsch

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 50.00

    A 2006 introduction to inverse and state estimation problems for graduate students and researchers in oceanography, climate science, and geophysical fluid dynamics. more...

  • Advances in Geophysicsby Ru-Shan Wu; Valerie Maupin; Renata Dmowska

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 235.00

    Significant progress in our understanding of the Earth's structure and functioning is dependent on new and original observations. However, these observations cannot be interpreted in a quantitative way without tools to model them, and developing adequate modelling methods is also a prerequisite for progress. Seismological raw data in the 21st century... more...

  • Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flowsby Jeffrey B. Weiss; Antonello Provenzale

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 61.20

    Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives. In the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field. In the Langrangian view, fluid parcels are followed around as they move with the flow, experiencing chaotic or stochastic motion. This book examines both pictures, presenting a number of theoretical and... more...

  • Origins Of Magnetospheric Physicsby James A. Van Allen

    University of Iowa Press 2004; US$ 26.00

    Early in 1958, instruments on the space satellites Explorer I and Explorer III revealed the presence of radiation belts, enormous populations of energetic particles trapped in the magnetic field of the earth. Originally published in 1983 but long out of print until now, Origins of Magnetospheric Physics tells the story of this dramatic and hugely transformative... more...
