Continental drift by S. K Runcorn( Book )

29 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continental Drift brings together within one volume a discussion of the geophysical evidence relating to horizontal movements in the earth's crust in its widest sense. This is not the time for a reappraisal of the work of German meteorologist Alfred Wegener, but it is hoped that this volume will stimulate a serious interest in a subject formerly considered by many earth scientists as already closed. The book contains 12 chapters and begins with a discussion of paleomagnetic evidence for continental drift and its geophysical cause. This is followed by separate chapters on of paleoclimatic e

Methods in palaeomagnetism. Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Palaeomagnetic Methods, held in the Physics Department of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, April 1-10, 1964 by D. W Collinson( Book )

14 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods in Paleomagnetism covers the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Paleomagnetic Methods, held in the Physics Department of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne on April 1-10, 1964. The book focuses on apparatus and techniques used in paleomagnetism and rock magnetism. The selection first offers information on sampling techniques in the field and measurement of natural remanent magnetization. Discussions focus on ballistic and spinner magnetometers; paleomagnetic sampling with a portable coring drill; portable apparatus for collecting small oriented cores; and portab

The Physics of the planets : their origin, evolution and structure by S. K Runcorn( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides an excellent overview of the current state of knowledge of the geophysics of planets. The discussions cover several aspects of planetary composition, both surface and atmospheric, including planetary mechanics, circulation, origin, and modelling. Contributions include reviews of the literature and experimental results. The contributors to this book are all world-renowned experts who participated in the NATO Advanced Study Institute meeting from which the book takes its name

Flow and creep in the solar system : observations, modeling, and theory by David B Stone( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conference which generated the papers presented in this volume was very broad in scope, covering motions, both fluid and solid state, ranging from the scale of the solar corona to flow in sedimentary basins. The aims of this conference proceedings volume is to allow a comparison of these various flow regimes to obtain a fuller understanding of the processes and concepts involved. Much information concerning large scale motions within the planets is obtained from proxy records such as variations in magnetic fields and tectonic activity on the surface of the earth. However, the directly observed motions of the atmosphere, the oceans and ice are instructive in attempting to interpret these other records. The papers in this volume cover these and other disciplines to allow the reader to maintain a good perspective on the fluid motions taking place within, on and around the earth

Magnetism, planetary rotation, and convection in the solar system : retrospect and prospect : in honour of Prof. S.K. Runcorn by W O'Reilly( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the 6th, 7th' and 8th April 1983, a conference entitled "Magnetism, planetary rotation and convection in the Solar System" was held in the School of Physics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. The purpose of the meeting was to celebrate the 60th birthday of Prof. Stanley Keith Runcorn and his, and his students' and associates', several decades of scientific achievement. The social programme, which consisted of excursions in Northumberland and Durham with visits to ancient castles and churches, to Hexham Abbey and Durham Cathedral, and dinners in Newcastle and Durham, was greatly enjoyed by those attending the meeting and by their guests. The success ofthe scientific programme can be judged by this special edition of Geophysical Surveys which is derived mainly from the papers given at the meeting. The story starts in the late 1940s when the question of the origin of the magnetic field of the Earth and such other heavenly bodies as had at that time been discovered as having a magnetic field, was exercising the minds of several scientists; notably P. M. S. Blackett at Manchester, W. M. Elsasser at the University of Pennsylvania and E. C. Bullard at Cambridge. Two alternative mechanisms were proposed. In one the magnetic field was in some way connected with the distributed angular momentum of a rotating body; in the other, electric currents in conducting parts within the body were proposed as the source of magnetic field
