Imaging the Earth's Interior
by Jon F. Claerbout
Publisher: Blackwell Science Inc 1985
Number of pages: 412
Prospecting for oil begins with seismic soundings. The echoes are computer processed into images that reveal much about the earth's geological history. "Imaging the Earth's Interior" describes the image-making process. Professor Claerbout was the first to use the wave equation of physics directly in the image-making process, and his finite difference implementation quickly became an industry standard. It is intended for students entering earth sciences from other areas, earth science professionals, and professionals in other fields in which waves and images are studied.

The book reports recent contributions from research in the field of quartz and other silica minerals. The various forms of silica represent important constituents of the Earth crust and play a central role in the composition of geological materials.

After a brief introduction to the Rock Cycle, this text presents the properties of minerals and introduces crystallography. The most important rock-forming minerals are then dealt with in a systematic way, followed by the three main rock groups.
