For more than 40 years, AGI's Data Sheets have been a critical tool for the geoscientist in field, the lab, and the classroom. For decades its bright orange cover and three-ring binding was distinctive in the geoscience community. The book evolved into its current, full-color and spiral bound format with the 2005 debut of the 4th edition.
Now AGI has tapped some of the best minds in the geosciences to produce this 5th edition. Featuring the contributions of over 240 experts worldwide in their respective fields, this new, expanded edition is over 470 full-color pages. Three years of work went into the Handbook to broaden its scope across the disciplines. With more than 170 complete new data sheets, and full revisions of prior data sheets, over 85% of the content is either new or revised for the fifth edition. The Geoscience Handbook is the quick reference tool for key metrics and concepts, a guide to cornerstone papers and recent developments, as well as short tutorials on topics that may not be familiar to all geoscientists.
This is the digital PDF version of the handbook for use by a single individual only. Please be aware because of licensing agreements, copying and printing on the PDF have been disabled, but you are able to use it on a myriad of platforms that can show PDFs.
