The focus of the book is the imaging of reflection seismic data from controlled sources. The author emphasizes the fundamental physical and mathematical ideas of imaging rather than the details of particular applications.

The publication attempts to develop an appreciation of the scope of geodesy and to generate some understanding of the problems encountered in the science. The basic principles are presented through discussions of various geodetic topics.

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.

We review our research regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, and on the statistical physical modelling.
