The Interdisciplinary Earth

The Interdisciplinary Earth: A Volume in Honor of Don L. Anderson

Editor(s): Gillian R. Foulger, Michele Lustrino, and Scott D. King

This volume is a memorial to Don L. Anderson, former director of the Seismological Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology and recipient of the Crafoord Prize, the National Medal of Honor, and numerous other awards. A geophysicist extraordinaire, he contributed much to our understanding of the structure and dynamics of the interior of Earth. This book, composed largely of chapters written at Anderson’s invitation, reflects his interdisciplinary career. It includes papers on anisotropy, the seismic structure of the mantle, mantle convection, the statistics of melting anomalies, planetary geology, tectonics, the thermal budget of Earth, lithospheric structure, geochemistry, and flood basalts. Co-published by the American Geophysical Union and the Geological Society of America.
