An overview of the Earth's magnetic field at local, regional and global scales
The dual purpose of this publication is to provide the general public with a description of the Earth's magnetic field in the clearest and most concise terms possible, and to enable geoscience students to use it as a teaching aid. Although this booklet is primarily concerned with the lithospheric magnetic field, it is also necessary to consider the total Earth's magnetic field. The information in this booklet is based on the most recent observations, models and interpretations.
This book, entitled "The changing faces of the Earth's magnetic field" with its 37 figures and glossary will help the reader to better understand both what the Earth's magnetic field is and how it works, and the implications of these studies for natural hazards.
