ABSTRACT
Jeffreys, Harold (1891-1989), a British geophysicist, was a leading authority on the structure of the earth. In his book The Earth: Its Origin, History, and Physical Constitution, published in 1924, he provided the theory for the modern method of exploring the inside of the earth by means of seismic (earthquake) waves from explosions near the surface.
