Our Magnetic Earth
The Science of GeomagnetismBook - 2010
For the general public, magnetism often seems more the province of new age quacks, movie mad scientists, and grade-school teachers than an area of actual, ongoing scientific inquiry. But as Ronald T. Merrill reveals in Our Magnetic Earth , geomagnetism really is an enduring, vibrant area of science, one that offers answers to some of the biggest questions about our planet's past--and maybe even its future.
