'Written by three leading researchers, this is a comprehensive textbook that takes its readers from the fundamentals of potential fields through modern data acquisition, processing, modelling and inversion to practical interpretation. The theory and mathematical derivations are suitable for both beginners and experienced geophysicists. Well-organised and nicely illustrated, it is both informative and clearly written.' Alan Green, Institute of Geophysics, ETH-Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
'This extensive work is much more than just a textbook: it includes detailed discussions, such as the philosophy of modelling and the nature of errors, which are critical to properly interpreting gravity and magnetic data, but are often glossed over. A very useful addition to practitioners' reference shelves and an excellent textbook for advanced students.' Roger C. Searle, Professor Emeritus, Durham University
'The geophysical applications of gravity and magnetic techniques have advanced a great deal in the twenty-first century. Thus, this rigorous book covering the physical basis, analysis, interpretation, and applications of these techniques is a timely and important contribution. It is designed to serve both the student and practitioner and is enhanced by an innovative website.' G. Randy Keller, University of Oklahoma and Director of the Oklahoma Geological Survey
'This well-written, comprehensive textbook and reference source will provide students with the basic fundamentals of the geophysical methods of gravity and magnetics … The figures and tables are an added value as they help illustrate key points … This valuable resource will be beneficial to geophysics students now and well into the future, as they enter careers in the field. Highly recommended.' M. S. Field, Choice
This volume provides a comprehensive account of key topics and techniques in gravity and magnetic exploration, supplemented by practical online resources. An ideal text for advanced courses and a valuable resource for research academics, professional geophysicists and all those interested in petroleum, engineering, mineral, environmental, geological and archeological lithosphere exploration.
