This is the completely updated revision of the highly regarded book Exploration Seismology. Available now in one volume, this textbook provides a complete and systematic discussion of exploration seismology. The first part of the book looks at the history of exploration seismology and the theory - developed from the first principles of physics. All aspects of seismic acquisition are then described. The second part of the book goes on to discuss data-processing and interpretation. Applications of seismic exploration to groundwater, environmental and reservoir geophysics are also included.
The book is designed to give a comprehensive up-to-date picture of the applications of seismology. Exploration Seismology's comprehensiveness makes it suitable as a text for undergraduate courses for geologists, geophysicists and engineers, as well as a guide and reference work for practising professionals.

Here's what you say about us...

'The authors have shown themselves to be masters of data compression … The book is very well cross referenced, making fact finding easy … Sheriff and Geldart have written an important book which is authoritative and complete yet manages to treat subjects in depth. It is difficult to imagine a better book on the subject and I am sure it will prove even more difficult to write one.' Geophysical Journal

'They will serve the needs of these readers admirably as a thorough and up-to-date treatment of all aspects of the subject … Both volumes may be recommended unreservedly to everyone who is seriously interested in the subject … They are likely to be a standard text for many years to come.' Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research

'Few people have done as much … to demystify exploration seismology for geologists … what I believe to be the most readable and most 'user-friendly' set of volumes on exploration seismology.' AAPG Bulletin

'The strengths of the set are the breadth of its coverage, the many excellent data examples, and the insight into a variety of practical matters … chapters are largely independent of each other and the less analytically demanding ones can be usefully read on their own.' Seth Stein, Geological Sciences, Northwestern University
