Description:
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.

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.
