About this book
The critically acclaimed serialized review journal for nearly fifty years, "Advances in Geophysics" is a highly respected publication in the field of geophysics. Since 1952, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. Now, with over 45 volumes, the Serial contains much material still relevant today. It is truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of geophysics.
