About this Textbook

Paleomagnetic data are useful in many applications in Earth Science from determining paleocurrent directions to analyzing the long-term behavior of the geomagnetic field.

In this book, an attempt has been made to draw together the various principles and practices within paleomagnetism in a consistent and up-to-date manner. It includes many practical examples that illustrate various applications of paleomagnetism. A companion software package implements the theory explained in the text.

Audience: This volume is aimed at professional Earth Scientists using paleomagnetic data for their research. It is also suitable for use as a text book for students in courses with a paleomagnetic content. In addition, this volume will be of value to other professionals with an interest in the analysis of vector and tensor data in general.

Reviews

"This book is a significant step forward, since the number of practical details related to laboratory works is much higher than a typical textbook. The book by Lisa Tauxe, perhaps better than others, gives insight into paleomagnetic "blood, sweat and tears" perfectly illustrating well-known Chris Scotese's acronym PALEOMAGNETISM=NOT A SIMPLE GAME. ...Generally, the book is to some extent a hybrid of a text-and-guide book, combining a successfully concise, yet reader friendly, narrative style with a multiplicity of useful details regarding the background and practice particularly in paleomagnetic computing. Earth scientists who use paleomagnetic data in their research and students taking a class with paleomagnetic contents will find having this book satisfying, those working in Unix benefiting the most."
(Marek Lewandavski in Pure and Applied Geophysics, 159 (2002)
"This book is written with authority in a clear, easy-to-read style. For any earth scientist who uses paleomagnetic data in his/her research, it will serve as a valuable resource. Students in particular will find the examples and computer programs to be very instructive. I have enjoyed reading Paleomagnetic Principles and Practice, a timely contribution to the literature of geophysics."
(J.J. Love in EOS, 81:15 (2000)
