Publication Date



This chapter is from the book Fractals in the Earth Sciences, which reviews the many applications of fractal geometry used to study earth science patterns and processes. Designed as an introduction to this new area of study, the papers represent a broad spectrum of earth science disciplines where patterns have proven to be fractal over many orders of magnitude in time or space. This volume features an exhaustive list of published fractal dimensions measured for earth science patterns.
