I do believe that it is an indispensible gemagnetism tool for graduates, academics and professionals alike involved in the application or study of geomagnetism and palaeomagnetism. The work includes alphabetically arranged entries written by specialists in the field.
For those already involved in a particular aspect of this broad discipline it provides a useful pathway to allied subjects. A very useful list of cross-references is provided at the end of each article, which makes it much easier to link together areas that are less familiar.
As such, it will be an indispensable working tool not only for geophysicists and geophysics students but also for geologists, physicists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and engineers.

His work has included dynamo theory and its connection with the Earth’s thermal history, modelling the Earth’s magnetic field from historical measurements, and recently the interpretation of paleomagnetic data.
Geomagnetism, being the oldest Earth science, studies the Earth’s magnetic field in its broadest sense. He has worked in such diverse fields as volcanology, sedimentology, plate tectonics and has done field work on 5 continents. Understanding the process underlying the origin of Earth geomagnetiism field is one of the greatest challenges left to classical Physics.

Geomagnrtism magnetic record left in rocks is studied in Paleomagnetism. It describes in fine detail at ahd assessable level the state of the current knowledge and provides an up-to-date synthesis of the most basic concepts. The editor’s goal is to cover the subject in fine detail at a level understandable to anyone with a general scientific education. Selected pages Title Page.
