Looking into the earth : an introduction to geological geophysics

Author: A E Mussett; M Aftab Khan
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2000.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Looking Into the Earth comprehensively describes the principles and applications of both 'global' and 'exploration' geophysics on all scales. It forms an introduction to geophysics suitable for those who do not necessarily intend to become professional geophysicists, including geologists, civil engineers, environmental scientists, and field archaeologists. The book is organised into two parts: Part 1 describes the  Read more...
