In this second edition, the authors bring this text completely up-to-date. Important additions include a chapter on chemical geodynamics, an updated coverage of comparative planetology based on recent planetary missions, and a variety of other new topics. Geodynamics provides the fundamentals necessary for an understanding of the workings of the solid earth, describing the mechanics of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building in the context of the role of mantle convection and plate tectonics.
Observations such as the earth’s gravity field, surface heat flow, distribution of earthquakes, surface stresses and strains, and distribution of elements are discussed. This new edition will once again prove to be a classic textbook for intermediate to advanced undergraduates and graduate students in geology, geophysics, and earth science. Read more Read less.

Editorial Reviews Review ” If you are looking for a single, comprehensive treatment of plate tectonics, I highly recommend this book. If, like me, you already own a well-worn first edition, the second edition offers enough new material to be worth adding to your library as well.
Ideal for providing essential background for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. Geodynamics also provides benchmark material for graduate student qualifying examinations. Researchers will find Geodynamics to be an excellent reference tool for basic equations and concepts, as well as for definitions and numerical values of many physical properties of the Earth and other planetary bodies.
This texbook will also be valuable to scientists addressing problems outside of their fields of expertise, and to those expanding into new areas. The second edition of Geodynamics, like its predecessor, stands alone in its ability to link basic theory and geologic observation. Geodynamics should continue to benefit new generations of Earth scientists and students for decades to come. See all Editorial Reviews.

How did I make this mistake. I’m surprised nobody mentioned this, but the book had too many formulas!! Almost every page had math in it.
Not what I wanted. I I was very disappointed. Geoeynamics should have “Looked Inside” better. Not enough pix, diagrams, charts, etc. Anyway, I’m sure I’ll get good info out of this. But, I’m very surprised no reviewer mentioned the math in it!! It is an outstanding reference, and is clear and concise in its treatment of a variety of geophysical phenomena. I recommend it to all geologists and geophysicists! This is famous textbook for anyone wants to work on geodynamics.
A wealth of information and tools. It was an excellent companion to what I learned in class and still helps with many geodynamic problems. This book has the secrets of harnessing, and taming the powers of the earth. Strongly recommended for those seeking wisdom.
One person found this helpful. The seller’s shipping is very fast. When I got the product, I found it was like brand new even I purchased a ‘used’ book. I recommend buying from this seller.
In many ways however, this attempt is misguided. The material suffers from overcrowding in many chapters, and different approaches are used to solve the same problem, giving wildly different answers, with no attempt made to qualify which method is accepted as the most realistic. A fairly comprehensive set of questions are liberally sprinkled throughout each chapter, although the one-number answers at the back of the book are usually insufficient, and some brief explanation would greatly enhance user-friendliness.
The main problem I found with this textbook however, is the inability to link the numerical methods presented with real world situations. The complexities of plate deformation for example are reduced to a set of sections on beam-bending, with little or no attempt at the end to draw the lessons learnt from the exercise back into some meaningful discussion of how the earth behaves.
This is a common failure of analytical approaches to Earth Science problems, that the construction of a mathematical framework becomes an end in itself, and that real data are ignored or manipulated to shoehorn them into the predictions of the model. See all 11 reviews.
