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.

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.
Earth's magnetic field extends from the Earth's interior to where it meets the solar wind. Contents of the book: Overview; Measuring the field; Field characteristics; Temporal variation; Paleomagnetism; Rock magnetism; Magnetism; People.

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.
