Series: Handbook of Geophysical Exploration: Seismic Exploration

The expansion of concepts and technologies in exploration seismics over the years has been documented in detail by a wealth of articles in journals and reports. However, a researcher or specialist developing new techniques, or applying new techniques, relies on handbooks providing overviews and the status of specialised fields. Reference books provide the prime in-depth coverage for the exploration geophysicist - whether the demand is for details of complicated algorithms, the authoritative definition of a term, or the proper source of a quotation. The Handbook of Geophysical Exploration: Seismic Exploration therefore covers everything of interest to the field of exploration seismology. With over 30 volumes published so far and new volumes being published every year, the handbookseries covers a wide array of topics in the field.

Book Series: Supercomputers in Seismic Exploration

Most recent volume

Volume . Supercomputers in Seismic Exploration

Published: 30th June 1988 Author: E. Eisner Editor: Klaus Helbig
Provides an authoritative overview of the role which computers now play in the field of seismology and discusses ways in which they can be improved for solving the increasingly complex problems now facing the scientist and engineer. Topics covered include typical seismic models, computational requirements associated with several standard numerical modelling techniques, three-dimensional processing, migration and forward modelling, advances in both hardware and software, iterative modelling, hypercube supercomputing, reservoir simulation using supercomputers, algorithms used in modelling and inversion, wave equation computations and simulation of seismic waves.
