Fundamentals of Geophysical Data Processing
by Jon Claerbout
Publisher: Blackwell Science Inc 1985
Number of pages: 274
This book is 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. Traditional concepts of data processing are thoroughly discussed. A feature of the book is the use of partial differential equations for reflection seismic data processing in petroleum prospecting.

A selection of papers published in the Soviet journal Applied Geophysics are being presented to the Western scientists. The intention is to illustrate some of the achievements of the Russian applied geophysicists by translating their publications.

Chronology is the backbone of history, and there is a 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.

Inverse Theory is concerned with the problem of making inferences about physical systems from data. This course is an introduction to some of the balkanized family of techniques and philosophies that reside under the umbrella of inverse theory.
