This book starts with a modest historical overview, although I believe that the history of seismic technique deserves much more coverage […] For the rest, this book is not really about survey design, even though in the last chapter I suggest some rules and advices in that domain. Rather, this is a book about signal and noise. (Preface, Julien Meunier)
