Geography, Geology and Earth Science - Geology and Geosciences
Geophysics is a subject of natural science that deals with the physical processes and properties of the Earth and its atmosphere using quantitative methods for their analysis. It involves the geological applications of Earth's shape, gravitation, magnetic fields, internal structure, composition, dynamics, surface expression in plate tectonics, generation of magmas, volcanism, and rock formation. It also comprises the water cycle, formation of snow and ice, fluid dynamics of the oceans and the atmosphere. The study of electricity, and magnetism in the ionosphere and magnetosphere, and solar-terrestrial physics. The problems associated with the Moon and other planets is also undertaken within this field. The topics included in this book on applied geophysics are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. It attempts to understand the multiple branches that fall under this discipline and how such concepts have practical applications. This book will provide comprehensive knowledge to the readers.
