This volume provides the basic theory and principles behind imaging the subsurface of the Earth using reflection and refraction seismology, how to improve these images via data processing, and how to understand reflection seismology data sets. It is of particular interest for geologist and geophysicist students and professionals.

The authors draw on their own copious experience and data to provide real-world results and illustrations of seismic images. The accompanying CD-ROM includes complete Mathematica programs, movies, and plot statements to let readers explore and extend the examples. Contents
