Clear, precise definitions of scientific terms are crucial to good scientific and technical writing -and to understanding the writings of others. Wether you are a physicist, engineer, mathematician, or technical writer, wether your work in a research, academic, or industrial setting, you have the occasional need for comprehensible, working definitions of scientific terms.
"The dictionary of geophysics, astrophysics, and astronomy" meets that need. Authored by eminent scientists from around the world, it offers concise, authoritative definitions of more than 3750 terms covering a range of theoretical and applied disciplines: astronomy, cosmology, geophysics, Newtonian physics, astrophysics, general and special relativity, meteorology, and oceanography.
The editor has taken care to ensure each entry is a self-contained as possible, to include terms from the frontiers of technology, and to omit obsolete terms that can clutter a search. The result is a lucid, accessible, and convenient reference valuable to both the novice and the seasoned professional.
