Foundation of Exploration Geophysics (METHODS IN GEOCHEMISTRY AND GEOPHYSICS) by Gerkens J. C. D. D'Arnaud


pdf epub fb2 djvu



Based on lectures given by the author at the State University of Utrecht to students of geophysics and geology, this book provides a comprehensive treatment of the geophysical methods in common use; seismic, gravity, magnetic, electrical and radioactive methods. Emphasis is placed on the physical aspects necessary to judge the possibilities and limitations of a method in a specific case. The more comprehensive treatment of applied mathematical techniques makes the text easier to follow for those readers with a different mathematical training. Discussions include the reduction of field data, their qualitative and quantitative interpretation and, briefly, field techniques and the principles of recording instruments. Some exploration methods, such as the telluric and magnetotelluric methods, are also detailed. In the chapter on data processing Fourier transforms, convolution, correlation, the effects of digitalization and Z-transforms as the counterpart of Laplace transforms, are explained and examples given of their application on seismic signals. This book should be in every geophysics library where it would serve advanced geophysics students as a reference work.
