The past few decades have witnessed the growth of the Earth
Sciences in the pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the
planet that we live on. This development addresses the challenging
endeavor to enrich human lives with the bounties of Nature as well
as to preserve the planet for the generations to come. Solid Earth
Geophysics aspires to define and quantify the internal structure
and processes of the Earth in terms of the principles of physics
and forms the intrinsic framework, which other allied disciplines
utilize for more specific investigations.
The first edition of the Encyclopedia of Solid Earth Geophysics
was published in 1989 by Van Nostrand Reinhold publishing company.
More than two decades later, this new volume, edited by Prof. Harsh
K. Gupta, represents a thoroughly revised and expanded reference
work. It brings together more than 200 articles covering
established and new concepts of Geophysics across the various
sub-disciplines such as Gravity, Geodesy, Geomagnetism, Seismology,
Seismics, Deep Earth Processes, Plate Tectonics, Thermal Domains,
Computational Methods, etc. in a systematic and consistent format
and standard. It is an authoritative and current reference source
with extraordinary width of scope. It draws its unique strength
from the expert contributions of editors and authors across the
globe. It is designed to serve as a valuable and cherished source
of information for current and future generations of
