Book Contents

Geophysics and Geochemistry is a component of Encyclopedia of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Geophysics and Geochemistry are two closely intertwined and collaborating branches of Earth’s sciences. The content of the Theme on Geophysics and Geochemistry is organized with state-of-the-art presentations covering eight main topics: Foundations of Geophysics and Geochemistry; Geophysical Systems; Seismology and Volcanology; Geomagnetism and Geoelectricity; Aeronomy and Magnetosphere; Gravimetry; Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry; Planetology – Comparative Planetology of Earth-like Planets and Astrobiology which are then expanded into multiple subtopics, each as a chapter. These three volumes are aimed at the following a wide spectrum of audiences from the merely curious to those seeking in-depth knowledge: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Jan Lastovicka, is currently director of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and vice-president of the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy. He graduated in geophysics at Charles University in Prague in 1966. He got CSc (= PhD) in 1974 and DrSc (~ Prof.) in 1987, both from the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. In 1967-1994 he was with the Geophysical Institute of the Czechoslovakl Academy of Sciences, from doctoral student to head of Ionospheric department. Since 1994 he has been working in the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. His main research interests are: ionosphere, solarterrestrial relations, middle atmosphere (including ozone and effects of atmospheric waves on the ionosphere), and long-term trends (potentially of greenhouse origin). He is author/co-author of more than 220 published papers in scientific journals and various proceedings, and more than 210 presentations at scientific meetings. He organized a number of international scientific meetings.
