Publisher: Stanford University
Number of pages: 330

Description:
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.
