TitleGeophysics, realism, and industry : how commercial interests shaped geophysical conceptions, 1900-1960
Author(s)Aitor Anduaga
EditionFirst edition
Description1 online resource : illustrations (black and white)
Abstract NoteDid industry and commerce affect the concepts, values and epistemic foundations of different sciences? If so, how and to what extent? This book suggests that the most significant influence of industry on science in the two case studies treated here had to do with the issue of realism. Using wave propagation as the common thread, it simultaneously analyses the emergence of realist attitudes towards the entities of the ionosphere and of the Earth's crust. However, what led physicists and engineers to adopt realist attitudes? This book suggests that a new kind of realism - a realism of social and cultural origins - is the answer: a preliminary, entity realism responding to specific commercial and engineering interests, and a realism that was neither strictly instrumental nor exclusively operational

TitleFronts, waves and vortices in geophysical flows
Author(s)Jan-Bert Fl�or (ed.)
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer, 2010.
Description1 online resource (ix, 192 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract Note"Most well known structures in planetary atmospheres and the Earth's oceans are jets or fronts and vortices, interacting with each other on a wide range of scales. The transition from one state to another such as in unbalanced or adjustment flows invloves the generation of waves, as well as the interaction of coherent structures with these waves." "This book introduces and presents a fluid mechanics perspective, the dynamics of fronts, vortices and theil interaction with waves in geophysical flows. It provides a basic physical background for modeling on advanced topics such as spontaneous wave emission and wavemomentum transfer in geophysical flows." "Based on a set of lectures by leading specialists, this short course is tarteted at graduate students, researchers and engineers in geophysics and environmental fluid mechanics."--Jacket

TitleTheory of the earth
Author(s)Don L. Anderson
Edition2007 edition entitled "New theory of the earth".
PublicationBoston; Cambridge (U.K.), Blackwell Scientific Press; Cambridge University Press, 1989, 2007.
Descriptionviii,359pp.; xv, 384p. : Hb
Contents NoteThis is an interdisciplinary advanced textbook on all aspects of the interior of the earth and its origin, composition, evolution, geophysics, geochemistry, dynamics, convection, mineralogy, volcanism, energetics and thermal history. This book is a complete update of Anderson's 'Theory of the earth' (1989). It includes dozens of new figures and tables. A novel referencing system using Googlets is introduced that allows immediate access to supplementary material via the internet. There are new sections on tomography, self-organization and new approaches to plate tectonics.
