Committee on Physics of the Earth. OCLC Number: Notes.

The radiogenic isotope 40 Ar, being a decay product of 40 K, is of particular interest to the Earth as a whole because it would have been very rare indeed when the Earth first formed, and has leaked to the atmosphere progressively over the life of the Earth. We suppose that the potassium abundances of Venus, Earth and Mars are similar, an. Atmospheric physics is the application of physics to the study of the heric physicists attempt to model Earth's atmosphere and the atmospheres of the other planets using fluid flow equations, chemical models, radiation budget, and energy transfer processes in the atmosphere (as well as how these tie into other systems such as the oceans).

  Physics of the Earth's Interior embraces such a wide range of properties and processes that the space available in one volume imposes severe limitations on their discussion. Moreover, the uneven familiarity of any geophysicist with the many fields of natural science which are involved favors their uneven Edition: 1.   Physics of the Earth 2nd Ed. still holds up after almost 50 years. At its publishing the Plate Tectonics paradigm was the new revolution and still is. The text touches on the disciplines of Geophysics: Geomagnetics, Gravity (the Tides and the response of the mantle and core and rotation), Radiometric Dating, Seismology and Earthquakes, Earth's /5(7).
