Image Estimation by Example: Geophysical Soundings Image Construction
by Jon Claerbout, Sergey Fomel
Publisher: Stanford University 2008
Number of pages: 330
This book is about the estimation and construction of geophysical images. Geophysical images are used to visualize petroleum and mineral resource prospects, subsurface water, contaminant transport (environmental pollution), archeology, lost treasure, even graves. People need more practice with easier problems like the ones found in this book, which are mostly simple 2-D landforms derived from 2-D data. Such concrete estimation problems are solved quickly, and their visual results provide experience in recognizing weaknesses, reformulating, and moving forward again.

Prospecting for oil begins with seismic soundings. The echoes are processed into images that reveal the earth's geological history. This book describes the image-making process, it uses the wave equation directly in the image-making process.
