About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 76.

A successful geophysicist must learn how to create a model simple enough for the application of principles of mathematical physics, and yet capable of capturing the essence of the phenomena in the Earth. In the past, geophysicists tended to restrict themselves to either a study of structure or a study of process. The time has come to combine these two lines of study for better understanding of phenomena in the Earth. This volume represents an initial effort toward this goal by providing a survey of such modeling of geophysical structures and processes covering the whole Earth from its ionosphere to the inner core.
