Acquisition and Processing of Marine Seismic Data demonstrates the main principles, required equipment, and suitable selection of parameters in 2D/3D marine seismic data acquisition, as well as theoretical principles of 2D marine seismic data processing and their practical implications. Featuring detailed datasets and examples, the book helps to relate theoretical background to real seismic data. This reference also contains important QC analysis methods and results both for data acquisition and marine seismic data processing. Acquisition and Processing of Marine Seismic Data is a valuable tool for researchers and students in geophysics, marine seismics, and seismic data, as well as for oil and gas exploration.

Key Features

  • Contains simple step-by-step diagrams of the methodology used in the processing of seismic data to demonstrate the theory behind the applications
  • Combines theory and practice, including extensive noise, QC, and velocity analyses, as well as examples for beginners in the seismic operations market
  • Includes simple illustrations to provide to the audience an easy understanding of the theoretical background
  • Contains enhanced field data examples and applications


Earth scientists, particularly geophysicists, and professionals in the oil and gas industry

    Good start to study marine seismic data

    It is a well-organized book for beginners to study marine seismic data

  • aslıhan n. Thu Mar 22 2018


    This book has a collection of up to date and comprehensive data analysing and ideas about the major seismic investigations on the earth. The book is well configured and illustrations are instructive and it is of a good overall quality. There are a lot of colourful and interpretive figures. Universities, earth scientists, students and especially earth science libraries, must have this book on a high priority.
