Özet

Though the deep interior of the Earth (and other terrestrial planets) is inaccessible to humans, we are able to combine observational, experimental and computational (theoretical) studies to begin to understand the role of the deep Earth in the dynamics and evolution of the planet. This book brings together a series of reviews of key areas in this important and vibrant field of studies.

A range of material properties, including phase transformations and rheological properties, influences the way in which material is circulated within the planet. This circulation re-distributes key materials such as volatiles that affect the pattern of materials circulation. The understanding of deep Earth structure and dynamics is a key to the understanding of evolution and dynamics of terrestrial planets, including planets orbiting other stars.

This book contains chapters on deep Earth materials, compositional models, and geophysical studies of material circulation which together provide an invaluable synthesis of deep Earth research.

Readership : advanced undergraduates, graduates and researchers in geophysics, mineral physics and geochemistry.

This volume, with contributions from 19 expert authors, reviews the deep interior (mantle, core) of Earth on the basis of seismology, mineralogy, phase diagrams, and the dynamics of viscous mixing and heat transfer. Readers must have a background in advanced classical physical chemistry and geophysics to benefit from the 13 advanced review articles gathered here. Bibliographies are up-to-date through 2011. The book does not provide suggestions for further reading or for background information for those wishing to catch up with the specialists for whom the volume is intended. Editing is a little haphazard: lithosphere becomes "lothosphere," and element 14 is severally referred to as silicon, silicate (when no oxide is intended), and "silicium." Oddly, the volume includes a chapter on the very sketchily understood exoplanets, though solar system neighbors that are much better understood are only mentioned in passing. The book is a useful acquisition for graduate-level earth science library collections. Specialists will probably already be familiar with this material, while undergraduates will lack the tools to understand it. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty. T. R.
