Basic Earth Imaging
by Jon F. Claerbout Cecil, Ida Green
Number of pages: 236
The main theme of this book is to take a good quality reflection seismic data set from the Gulf of Mexico and guide you through the basic geophysical data processing steps from raw data to the best-quality final image. Secondary themes are to introduce you (1) to cleaned up but real working Fortran code that does the job, (2) to the concept of adjoint operator, and (3) to the notion of electronic document.
