    Joshua Mohr: IMG Your Imagination, Your Fingerprint



    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Magnetic Stratigraphy (International Geophysics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Magnetic Stratigraphy is the most comprehensive book written in the English language on the subject of magnetic polarity stratigraphy and time scales. This volume presents the entirety of the known geomagneticrecord, which now extends back about 300 million years. The book includes the results of current research on sea floor spreading, magnetic stratigraphy of the Pliocene and Pleistocene, and postulations on the Paleozoic. Also included are both historicalbackground and applications of magnetostratigraphy. Individual chapters on correlation are presented, using changes in magnetic properties and secular variation.

Key Features

* Discusses pioneering work in the use of marine sediments to investigate the Earths magnetic field

* Serves as a guide for students wishing to begin studies in magnetostratigraphy

* Provides a comprehensive guide to magnetic polarity stratigraphy including up-to-date geomagnetic polarity time scales

* Correlates magnetic stratigraphics from marine and non-marine Cenozoic sequences

* Details reversal history of the magnetic field for the last 350 million years

* Discusses correlation using magnetic dipole intensity changes

* Up-to-date correlation of biostratigraphy with magnetic stratigraphy through the late Jurassic

Book News Annotation:

A guide for geographers interested in studying the stratigraphic record of polarity reversals in rocks and sediments, and integrating it with biological, chemical, and numerical information from the same sources. Introduces such basics as the history of the field, the characteristics of Earth's magnetic field, the magnetization process and the magnetic properties of sediments, laboratory techniques, and the elements necessary to any investigation. Then surveys the latest findings and integrations from the Jurassic through the Quaternary marine and terrestrial sedimentation, and reports on recent efforts to expand magnetic studies to other periods. Also discusses secular variation and the application of magnetic studies to other types of geological material.

About the Author

Neil D. Opdyke was the winner of the Fleming Medal of the American Geophysical Union in 1996, the george P. Woollard Award of the Geological Society of America in 1987, and the Stillwell Award of the Geological Society of Australia in 1982. He earned his Ph.D. at Durham University, England, in 1958, and went on to get his D.Sc. at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1982. Opdyke is currently a Full Professor in the Department of Geology at the University of Florida, a Fellow of the Geological Society of America, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.
