About this book

Presenting a coherent synthesis of lithosphere studies, this book covers a range of geophysical methods (seismic reflection, refraction, and receiver function methods; elastic and anelastic seismic tomography; electromagnetic and magnetotelluric methods; thermal, gravity and rheological models), complemented by petrologic and laboratory data on rock properties. It also provides a critical discussion of the uncertainties, assumptions, and resolution issues that are inherent in the different methods and models of the lithosphere.

Multidisciplinary in scope, global in geographical extent, and covering a wide variety of tectonics settings across 3.5 billion years of Earth history, The Lithosphere: An Interdisciplinary Approach presents a comprehensive overview of lithospheric structure and evolution. It is a core reference for researchers and advanced students in geophysics, geodynamics, tectonics, petrology, and geochemistry, and for petroleum and mining industry professionals.

Media reviews

"Irina Artemieva provides a broad-reaching and detailed description of the lithosphere, and the different disciplines required to fully understand it, from seismology to petrology. She explains the mysteries of geochemistry to geophysicists and the complexity and rigor of the geophysical approach to earth scientists in general, making this book of immense value to all geologists."
– Nicholas Arndt, Universite Joseph Fourier

"The Lithosphere provides a fresh, authoritative and comprehensive look at an enduring scientific problem. The interdisciplinary approach makes this an invaluable reference for researchers and graduate students across diverse areas of Earth Science, including seismology, tectonics, geodynamics and geochemistry."
– David W. Eaton, University of Calgary
