About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the History of Geophysics Series, Volume 1.
This book marks the beginning of what we hope will be an annual series of volumes presenting articles concerning the social and intellectual history of the geophysical sciences, broadly defined. It is a collection of materials appearing originally in the journals of the AGU and selected from issues published during the past 10 years or so. We hope these articles will be of considerable interest to a wide and diverse audience, including professional geophysicists and AGU members, students of the geosciences, historians, and those concerned with public or policy aspects of the sciences. With these audiences in mind, AGU is offering this hardcover volume at what is a quite reasonable price, given the current average prices of monographs and books.
