Critical evaluation of hypotheses on the nature of the earth's core McFadden, Charles
Arguments and evidence from many related branches of geophysics are used to evaluate the principal hypotheses on the nature of the earth's core. No definite conclusions on the composition of the core are reached. Nevertheless, with improved data from seismology, high pressure physics and planetary astronomy, it should be possible to obtain further insight on the nature of the earth's core on the basis of the arguments summarized in this thesis.
