The list of important publications in here grossly incomplete and not very useful for readers wanting to find out about the topics.

I suggest removing it for now and then adding a better list later.

After this I believe this can go live. Dhananjay Ravat 06:46, 8 November 2006 (CST)

As an encyclopedia article, a definition plus a list does not strike me as adequate. Shouldn't there at least be a longer introduction to the subject areas and methods of geophysics? --Larry Sanger 22:52, 7 November 2006 (CST)

Since there can always be links to more specifics (and there are already a few), I thought this would be enough with a few changes. But I will think about what more one could add without getting distracted from the primary message. In my opinion, people have very little time to read these days, and a longer version of a broad discipline like Geophysics cannot be done without bias and without a lot of thought. (If I were writing a paper encyclopedia entry for this topic, it would take me a month to achieve a good article.) So the persons who had written the previous version had done a reasonably good job in my opinion, but I just made a few corrections and some reorganization.
