4.0 out of 5 stars Best book for a complete course in exploration seismology, 10 Jan 2011
Jim Brown (Stavanger, Norway) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Exploration Seismology (Paperback)
Although somewhat dated in a few areas, it is still about the best single book available for a complete course in exploration seismology. The authors have done a good job of trying to make the more theoretical aspects accessible to the less mathematically inclined, without unduly compromising rigour. Much of he material is classical, and the book's age (2nd edition published in 1995) doesn't matter much for such aspects. In some specialized areas, however, e.g. multicomponent methods or AVO, the latest developments are lacking. The existence of a section-by-section companion book by the same authors containing over 500 pages of problems with solutions (available from the SEG) is a big plus, both for instructors and students.
