Summary:
"This book provides a summary of current research in this field, which is revealing many surprises. Shun-ichiro Karato integrates the atomic-level description of Earth materials that mineral physics addresses with global-scale modeling and observations on mantle and core dynamics that are the purview of seismology and geodynamics. He depicts an Earth whose interior is as active as its surface, and whose processes in  Read more...
