Chronology is the backbone of history, and there is a saying stating there is no history without a chronology. Earths evolutionary history is built up by geochronology, i.e. time benchmarks upon which the geological history is built up step by step.

The focus of the book is the imaging of reflection seismic data from controlled sources. The author emphasizes the fundamental physical and mathematical ideas of imaging rather than the details of particular applications.
Earth's magnetic field extends from the Earth's interior to where it meets the solar wind. Contents of the book: Overview; Measuring the field; Field characteristics; Temporal variation; Paleomagnetism; Rock magnetism; Magnetism; People.
