Geochronology: Methods and Case Studies
by Nils-Axel Morner (ed.)
Publisher: InTech 2014
Number of pages: 204
Chronology is the backbone of history, and there is a wise saying stating there is no history without a chronology. Earths evolutionary history is built up by geochronology, i.e. time benchmarks upon which the geological history is built up step by step over its total time period of about 4.5 billion years.

The book presents a systematic treatment of the interaction of seismic waves with Earth structure. The theoretical development is physically based and is closely tied to the nature of the seismograms observed across a wide range of distance scales.

The book about the use of computer programs for the analysis of geophysical data to try to determine the constitution of the Earth's interior, a process which enables a geophysicist to locate petroleum and mineral prospects.

The book about the estimation and construction of geophysical images, which are used to visualize petroleum and mineral resource prospects, subsurface water, contaminant transport, etc. Data used in this book comes from acoustics and seismology.
