Most widely held works by A. E Mussett
The inaccessible earth by G. C Brown( Book )
10 editions published between 1980 and 1985 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Looking into the earth : an introduction to geological geophysics by A. E Mussett( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Looking Into the Earth comprehensively describes the principles and applications of both 'global' and 'exploration' geophysics on all scales. It forms an introduction to geophysics suitable for those who do not necessarily intend to become professional geophysicists, including geologists, civil engineers, environmental scientists, and field archaeologists. The book is organised into two parts: Part 1 describes the geophysical methods, while Part 2 illustrates their use in a number of extended case histories. Mathematical and physical principles are introduced at an elementary level, and then developed as necessary. Student questions and exercises are included at the end of each chapter. The book is aimed primarily at introductory and intermediate university students taking courses in geology, earth science, environmental science, and engineering. It will also form an excellent introductory textbook in geophysics departments, and will help practising geologists, archaeologists and engineers understand what geophysics can offer their work
The inaccessible earth : an integrated view to its structue and composition by G. C Brown( Book )
15 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the second edition of a unique treatment of the origin, structure and internal composition of the Earth, and synthesizes the geological, chemical and physical knowledge bearing on the Earth's inaccessible interior. It is an integrated and readable account suitable for undergraduate students and teachers of the Earth Sciences." "Why do we think that the centre of the earth is a nickel-iron alloy; or that the crust evolves by processes at spreading ridges, subduction zones and where plumes rise near the surface, or that the Earth's magnetic field is generated by convection in the molten outer core? The evidence comes from many disciplines but the contributions of geophysics and geochemistry are particularly important." "The text traces how the Earth's layered structure is revealed by seismic data and examines the variation of density with depth by combining knowledge of the Earth's mass and moment of inertia, deduced astronomically. Density is the prime constraint on chemical composition which is deduced also by reference to new theories of stellar evolution and planetary accretion, combined with evidence from the solar system and meteorites. The second half of the text goes on to describe the probable composition and physical state of the present day core, mantle and crust." "In the second edition, more emphasis is placed on dynamical processes at all depths in the Earth. These are a consequence of various forms of convection powered by heat released by radioactive decay and the cooling of the Earth. Effects such as mantle convection and the geomagnetic dynamo are reexamined in the light of our improved understanding, and geological evidence is used to construct a model for the evolutionary history of the Earth's continental crust."--Jacket
