New theory of the Earth by Don L Anderson ( Book )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"New Theory of the Earth is an interdisciplinary advanced textbook on the origin, composition, and evolution of the Earth's interior: geophysics, geochemistry, dynamics, convection, mineralogy, volcanism, energetics, and thermal history. This is the only book on the whole landscape of deep Earth processes that ties together all the strands of the subdisciplines. It is a complete update of Anderson's Theory of the Earth (1989). It includes many new sections and dozens of new figures and tables. As with the original book, this new edition will prove to be a stimulating textbook for advanced courses in geophysics, geochemistry, and planetary science, and a supplementary textbook on a wide range of other advanced Earth science courses. It will also be an essential reference and resource for all researchers in the solid Earth sciences."--Jacket

Seismic Phenomena Connected with Earthquakes and Explosions by Don L Anderson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1969 and 1973 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Considerable progress has been made in the detailed study of continental structure using a variety of approaches, some of which are new, and the results of theoretical progress in wave propagation theory. The author has regionalized continents into provinces having typical crust and mantle structure, as well as other distinctive geophysical and geologic properties, and has provided at least a preliminary description of these properties. More detailed investigations of the variation of properties within these provinces were also pursued. Use of this knowledge for prediction of the seismic field provided interpretations of the radiation field which led to the resolution of important source characteristics and physical parameters. The theory of inversion has been developed to the point of wide application and utility and besides its intrinsic importance in all areas of geophysics and science, its application to seismic source and structure studies provides a systematic means of determining physical parameters of importance in the discrimination of seismic events. Progress in asymptotic wave propagation theory promises to provide sensitive high-resolution techniques capable of determining details of earth structure, in particular velocity gradients in the crust and mantle, and details of the source spectrum.

Research in seismic phenomena connected with earthquakes and explosions ( Book )
3 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The structure of the crust and upper mantle in the Western United States has been intensively studied by refraction and reflection techniques. Strong lateral variations have been found which correlate well with gravity, heat flow, P-delay, and other geophysical data. Methods have been developed to handle lateral variations both for body wave and surface wave studies. A method has been developed for analyzing high pressure shock wave data in order to make direct comparisons with seismic data. The lower mantle is clearly enriched in iron compared to the upper mantle. The low-velocity zone has been determined to be caused by partial melting. Free oscillation data have been inverted to obtain continental and oceanic Earth models. Theoretical work for wave propagation in inhomogeneous media has provided a number of results in diffraction theory which are important in determining the nature of the Earth's core mantle boundary
