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.

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.

Inverse Theory is concerned with the problem of making inferences about physical systems from data. This course is an introduction to some of the balkanized family of techniques and philosophies that reside under the umbrella of inverse theory.
