Description

This monograph is the last volume in the series 'Acoustic and Elastic Wave Fields in Geophysics'. The previous two volumes published by Elsevier (2000, 2002) dealt mostly with wave propagation in liquid media.

The third volume is dedicated to propagation of plane, spherical and cylindrical elastic waves in different media including isotropic and transversely isotropic solids, liquid-solid models, and media with cylindrical inclusions (boreholes).

Key Features

  • Prevalence of physical reasoning on formal mathematical derivations
  • Readers do not need to have a strong background in mathematics and mathematical physics
  • Detailed analysis of wave phenomena in various types of elastic and liquid-elastic media

Readership

Exploration geophysicists, oil and gas industry

Reviews

"This book by researchers with high international reputations in geophysics and seismology, completes this extraordinary series of three volumes devoted to acoustic and elastic waves in geophysics. It is extraordinary because of its thoroughness and completeness in presenting wave theory." -Peter G, Malischewsky, in NATURAL HAZARDS, 2007
