This Encyclopedia goals, primarily, at summanzmg the wealth of good validated proof and outlining the correct theories within the diverse branches of physics. With this as aim, the writers have been requested to give their particular box in one of these approach that entry is feasible to any scientist with out unique a priori info in that box; the fundamental ideas of physics are assumed to be recognized to the reader. The survey given in each one paper used to be additionally to be lengthy lasting, in order that even many years after book, every one quantity will be precious, for instance as an advent for rookies or as a resource of knowledge for employees in a neighbouring box. within the box of geophysics, handled in Vols. 47--49 of the Encyclopedia, this activity is hard to accomplish simply because over the past a long time there was a miles swifter improvement of simple details and conception than through the many years sooner than. while I got here to give a contribution to this paintings the recognized Julius Bartels, then editor of the geophysical half, advised me that Vol. forty nine may still definitely have in mind the result of the "International Geophysical yr" 1957/58 (I. G. Y. ), and that we had larger wait till those have been available than produce a type of details that may be out of date very quickly.
