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.

Chronology is the backbone of history, and there is a saying stating there is no history without a chronology. Earths evolutionary history is built up by geochronology, i.e. time benchmarks upon which the geological history is built up step by step.
