Fundamentals of Geophysical Data Processing
by Jon Claerbout
Publisher: Blackwell Science Inc 1985
Number of pages: 274
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.

Geo-neutrinos bring to the surface information from the whole planet, concerning its content of natural radioactive elements. Their detection shed light on the sources of the terrestrial heat flow, on the composition, and on the origins of the Earth.

Seismic data acquisition and analysis in the petroleum industry is a multi-billion dollar activity. This text provides a complete introduction to geophysical data processing. A primary aim of this book is to explain the process of inverse modelling.
Earth's magnetic field extends from the Earth's interior to where it meets the solar wind. Contents of the book: Overview; Measuring the field; Field characteristics; Temporal variation; Paleomagnetism; Rock magnetism; Magnetism; People.
