Description:
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.
