  • In a classic paper by the late Yale historian of science, Derek De Solla Price (1965), based mainly on the study of citations in a single scientific research field, it was shown how citations in a developing research area have a strong 'immediacy effect'.1 Citation was found to be at a maximum for papers about two-and-a-half years old, and the 'major work of a paper ... [is] finished after 10 years', as judged by citations.

  • Earth as an Evolving Planetary System presents the key topics and questions relating to the evolution of the Earth's crust and mantle over the last four billion years. It examines the role of plate tectonics in the geological past via geological evidence and proposed plate reconstruction. Kent Condie synthesizes data from the fields of oceanography, geophysics, planetology, and geochemistry to examine the key topics and questions relating to the evolution of the Earth's crust and mantle.

  • Asthenosphere A region of the earth’s upper mantle at a depth of approximately 75–150 km, characterized by low mechanical strength, attenuation of seismic shear waves, and partial melting. The term was coined in the 1910s by geologist Joseph Barrell to describe the zone in which isostatic adjustment occurs and basaltic magmas are generated. With the development of plate tectonics in the 1960s, the asthenosphere is now un- derstood as the plastic zone over which the rigid plates move....

  • The first version of this text was written to serve as lecture notes for a first term geology course in “Minerals and Rocks” at Aarhus Universityin Denmarkin 2003. In Aarhus this course is accompanied by a general “Introduction to Geology” course that presents, for example, the structure of the Earth, plate tectonics and paleontology. These topics are therefore not treated here, and some knowledge of the Earth´s structure and plate tectonicsis assumed.

  • As the full horror of the Asian tsunami sinks in, the reactions of scientists echo those of the population as a whole. These range from a sense of hopelessness in the face of nature’s power to concern for the victims and a determination that their suffering should be addressed.

  • Many have endeavored to make our outdoor environment cleaner and safer. The learning process that occurred showed us the limitations of our planet and also the sustainability of our ecosystem if given a chance. As a community, we learned about the water, the soil, and the air. We learned about the underground river that flowed to the surface lake. We learned about air currents that transported airstreams around our globe. We discovered the reality of plate tectonics and the ever-changing hydrogeological system.

  • Earth Science is made up of many different areas of geological study. Since the Earth contains everything from clouds (meteorology) and oceans (marine biology) to fossils (paleontology) and earthquakes (geology/plate tectonics), there is a lot to choose from!
