Magnetism is important in environmental studies for several reasons, the two most fundamental being that most substances exhibit some form of magnetic behavior, and that iron is one of the most common elements in the Earth's crust. Once sequestered in a suitable material, magnetic particles constitute a natural archive of conditions existing in former times. Magnetism provides a tracer of paleo-climatic and paleo-environmental conditions and processes. Environmental Magnetism details the occurrence and uses of magnetic materials in the natural environment. The first half of the volume describes the basic principles. The second half discusses the applications of magnetic measurements in various environmental settings on land, in lakes, in the ocean, and even various biological organisms.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...the first major work on the subject in focus to be co-authored by people based on opposite sides of the Atlantic, which has resulted in a well-balanced, unbiased variety of examples and an extensive reference list." -Ian F. Snowball, Department of Geology, Lund University, in JOURNAL OF QUATERNARY SCIENCE, 2004 "This excellent, reasonably priced, and highly up-to-date book will be widely used by students and researchers...Highly recommended" -I.D. Sasowsky for Choice Magazine (April, 2004) "The book provides a solid basis on which to construct an introductory course in the unfamiliar area of environmental magnetism...provides a rich source for selected material that may be used in other related courses." -Ronald Green, Fitzroy, Adelaide, SA, Australia for The Leading Edge (May 2004) "A comprehensive, exceptionally up-to-date resource...could serve as a textbook for beginning graduate students with a modest background in physics" -John Geissman, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, for Eos, Transactions of the American Geophysical Union (May 2004)
