Many text books have been written on the subject "Exploration Geophysics".
The majority of these texts focus on the theory and the mathematical treatment of the subject matter but lack treatment of practical aspects of geophysical exploration. This text is written in simple English to explain the physical meaning of jargon, or terms used in the industry. It describes how seismic data is acquired in 2-D and 3-D, how they are processed to convert the raw data to seismic vertical and horizontal cross sections, that are geologically meaningful, and how these and other data are interpreted to delineate a prospect. Workshops are included after each chapter and are designed to reinforce learning of the concepts presented. Key Features: Written in simple easy to understand language Heavily illustrated to aid in understanding the text End of chapter "Key words and workshop" The text includes several appendices and answers for the selected workshop problems
