Global Dynamics of the Earth
: Applications of Viscoelastic Relaxation Theory to Solid-Earth and Planetary Geophysics, Second Edition
Springer | Geophysics & Geodesy | June 28, 2016 | ISBN-10: 9401775508 | 358 pages | pdf | 12.07 mb

Authors: Sabadini, Roberto, Vermeersen, Bert, Cambiotti, Gabriele
Self-contained textbook on how to model viscoelastic relaxation, within the frame of most advanced analytical approaches, aimed at acquiring a deep insight into the physics of the modelled geophysical phenomena
Contains the widest spectrum of geophysical processes where viscoelastic relaxation plays a key role, from post-seismic deformation to geoid anomalies and polar displacements driven by density anomalies due to mantle convection, including post-glacial rebound and sea-level changes
Accounts for the newest developments in Planetology, dealing with viscoelastic relaxation of ice moons of the Solar System squeezed by tidal forces, most interesting planetary bodies that might offer chances for natural habitat and even extraterrestrial life forms, thanks to possible liquid layers under their icy crust
This volume opens up new perspectives on the physics of the Earth's interior and planetary bodies for graduate students and researchers working in the fields of geophysics, planetary sciences and geodesy. It looks at our planet in an integrated fashion, linking the physics of its interior to geophysical and geodetic techniques that record, over a broad spectrum of spatial wavelengths and time scales, the ongoing modifications in the shape and gravity field of the planet. Basic issues related to the rheological properties of the Earth and to its slow deformation are considered, in both mathematical and physical terms, within the framework of an analytical relaxation theory. Fundamentals of this theory are developed in the first two Chapters. Chapters 3-9 deal with a wide range of applications, ranging from changes in the Earth's rotation to post-seismic deformation and from sea-level variations induced by post-glacial rebound to tidal deformation of icy moons of the Solar System. This Second Edition improves substantially our formalism implementing compressibility in viscoelastic relaxation. Chapter 5 now contains new developments in the physics of the gravitational effects of large earthquakes at subduction zones, made possible by new gravity data from space missions. The new Chapter 9 of this Second Edition on deformation and stresses of icy moons enlarges the applications of the book to Planetology, dealing with the additional complications in the theory of viscoelastic relaxation introduced by the shallow low-viscosity zones and inviscid water layers of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.
