Self-consistent problems of geophysics: A review

  • B. S. Svetov


In the first part of the paper, the general information about self-consistent problems of geophysics is presented. It is shown that these problems most adequately describe the processes in the real geological medium. Examples of such problems are given. This section of the paper provides a number of new results which have not been published previously. These results are shown in italics in the text. The two subsequent sections address the analysis of the most elaborated self-consistent problems of geophysics: induced polarization and seismoelectrics.
