About The Product
Published by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.
The current quantity assembles a bunch of papers masking a large choice of subject matters in geophysics. those papers have been provided at a different symposium, June 28 and 29, 1957, performed by means of the U.S. nationwide Committee for the foreign Geophysical 12 months prior to the IGY application officially began.
The papers aren't purely of common and old curiosity, yet lots of them include reviews on early result of the IGY. even though the IGY officially begun on July 1, 1957, a few our personal tasks have been initiated significantly ahead of that point; additionally, convinced geophysical examine which shaped the root for the IGY departure can also be encompassed during this quantity. ultimately, the papers offer not just the prestige of our initiatives at first of the IGY yet usually current studies of the final prestige of a self-discipline. For all of those purposes, the Committee believes that the current quantity could be of worth to geophysicists largely.
