It is commonly accepted that the variations of Earth's orbit and obliquity control the timing of Pleistocene glacial-interglacial cycles. Evidence comes from analysis of palaeoclimate records. However, we do not know how tight this control is.

The focus of the book is the imaging of reflection seismic data from controlled sources. The author emphasizes the fundamental physical and mathematical ideas of imaging rather than the details of particular applications.
