A petroleum geologist's guide to seismic reflection. (CD-ROM included)
Ashcroft (geophysics, U. of Glasgow, Scotland) offers an academic course manual for advanced earth science students that also doubles as a way for geologists, petroleum engineers, and others who want to learn about the interpretation of reflection seismic data. Topics in this technical but very accessible text include: geophysical signal description, seismic wave propagation, velocity analysis, interpretation of two-dimensional surveys for structure, modifying the seismic waveform, and seismic input to mapping reservoir properties. The book also includes extensive references, numerous high-quality illustrations, and a CD-ROM.
