An introductory guide to global magnetic field properties, "Earth Magnetism" addresses, in non-technical prose, many of the frequently asked questions about Earth's magnetic field. Magnetism surrounds and penetrates our Earth in ways basic science courses can rarely address. It affects navigation, communication, and even the growth of crystals. As we observe and experience an 11-year solar maximum, we may witness spectacular satellite-destroying solar storms as they interact with our magnetic field. Written by an acknowledged expert in the field, this book will enrich courses in earth science, atmospheric science, geology, meteorology, geomagnetism, and geophysics. It contains nearly 200 original illustrations and eight pages of full-color plates. It is largely mathematics-free and with a wide breadth of material suitable for general readers. It integrates material from geomagnetism, paleomagnetism, and solar-terrestrial space physics. It features nearly 200 original illustrations and 4 pages of colour plates.
