Description

Seismic interferometry is an exciting new field in geophysics utilising multiple scattering events to provide unprecedented views of the Earth’s subsurface. This is the first book to describe the theory and practice of seismic interferometry with an emphasis on applications in exploration seismology. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter, and the text is supplemented by online MATLAB codes that illustrate important ideas and allow readers to generate synthetic traces and invert these to determine the Earth’s reflectivity structure. Later chapters reinforce these principles by deriving the rigorous mathematics of seismic interferometry. Incorporating examples that apply interferometric imaging to synthetic and field data, from applied geophysics and earthquake seismology, this book is a valuable reference for academic researchers and oil industry professionals. It can also be used to teach a one-semester course for advanced students in geophysics and petroleum engineering.

Features

– The first book to fully describe the new technique of seismic interferometry, with examples from exploration and earthquake geophysics
– Includes end-of-chapter review questions that allow readers to monitor their understanding of the material presented
– Is supplemented by online MATLAB codes for forward modeling and interferometry simulation

Review

…this book is timely and will serve as an important reference to exploration geophysicists who are interested in seismic interferometry, as well as those professionals and students in the fields such as earthquake seismology, ultrasound imaging, and physical oceanography who work on similar problems. … In summary, I feel that this book will be a key reference for academic researchers and exploration professionals who are interested in seismic interferometry.
