"All of the contributions provide good up-to-date general surveys of their topics...and will thus prove useful starting points for the new postgraduate." - NATURE "Geomagnetism represents an excellent effort to update the field of solar system magnetism; no institutional library should be without these volumes." - PHYSICS TODAY "The first three chapters...provide the most comprehensive account of the earth's core magnetohydrodynamics presently available. The book serves two purposes; firstly it provides an excellent reference book for mature research workers in the field; secondly the clarity of the exposition makes the book essential reading for young research workers and nonspecialists." - PHYSICS OF THE EARTH AND PLANETARY INTERIORS
