Earth Soundings Analysis: Processing versus Inversion
by Jon F. Claerbout
Publisher: Blackwell Science 1992
Number of pages: 334
Seismic data acquisition and analysis in the petroleum industry is a multi-billion dollar activity, Earth Surroundings Analysis describes the elements of soundings analysis. In particular, it examines the relationship between the practical (processing) and theoretical (inversion) approaches to the subject. This new text, together with the author's earlier work - Imaging the Earth's Interior (BSP 1985) provides a complete introduction to geophysical data processing.

This text presents some theoretical problems related to the continuum mechanics, of particular importance to applied geomechanics, geological engineering and structural geology. The theory of plates and shells is discussed in detail.

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.
