Everyday Applied Geophysics 1 covers the physical methods permitting the environmental exploration of the sub-surface in 1, 2, 3 or 4 dimensions (the last is for time-lapse in terms of physical environmental state and geometry). The ground is transparent to electrical currents, electromagnetic induction, magnetic fields and seismic (acoustic) waves. All extend our senses by using the propagation of these phenomena through underground materials. The book specifically addresses the methods feasible, accessible and affordable to all users, and provides simple apparatus electronic diagrams. The book also features open-source and free software links for data interpretation.

This is the completely revised and updated version of the popular and highly regarded textbook, Applied Geophysics. It describes the physical methods involved in exploration for hydrocarbons and minerals, which include gravity, magnetic, seismic, electrical, electromagnetic, radioactivity, and well-logging methods. All aspects of these methods are described, including basic theory, field equipment, techniques of data acquisition, data processing and interpretation, with the objective of locating commercial deposits of minerals, oil, and gas and determining their extent. In the fourteen years or so since the first edition of Applied Geophysics, many changes have taken place in this field, mainly as the result of new techniques, better instrumentation, and increased use of computers in the field and in the interpretation of data. The authors describe these changes in considerable detail, including improved methods of solving the inverse problem, specialized seismic methods, magnetotellurics as a practical exploration method, time-domain electromagnetic methods, increased use of gamma-ray spectrometers, and improved well-logging methods and interpretation.

Resistivity and induced polarization methods are used for a wide range of near-surface applications, including hydrogeology, civil engineering and archaeology, as well as emerging applications in the agricultural and plant sciences. This comprehensive reference text covers both theory and practice of resistivity and induced polarization methods, demonstrating how to measure, model and interpret data in both the laboratory and the field. Marking the 100 year anniversary of the seminal work of Conrad Schlumberger (1920), the book covers historical development of electrical geophysics, electrical properties of geological materials, instrumentation, acquisition and modelling, and includes case studies that capture applications to societally relevant problems. The book is also supported by a full suite of forward and inverse modelling tools, allowing the reader to apply the techniques to a wide range of applications using digital datasets provided online. This is a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers and practitioners interested in near-surface geophysics.

Applied Time Series Analysis II contains the proceedings of the Second Applied Time Series Symposium Held in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on March 3-5, 1980. The symposium provided a forum for discussing significant advances in time series analysis and signal processing. Effective alternatives to the familiar least-square and maximum likelihood procedures are described, along with maximum likelihood procedures for modeling irregularly sampled series and for classifying non-stationary series. Comprised of 22 chapters, this volume begins with an introduction to the multidimensional filtering theory and presents specific case histories related to the multidimensional recursive filter stability problem; the least squares inverse problem; realization of filters; and spectral estimation. The unique properties of the three-dimensional wave equation are also considered. Subsequent chapters focus on high-resolution spectral estimators; time series analysis of geophysical inverse scattering problems; minimum entropy deconvolution; and fitting of a continuous time autoregression to discrete data. This monograph will appeal to students and practitioners in the fields of mathematics and statistics, electrical and electronics engineering, and information and computer sciences.

Exploration beyond the Earth has tended to overshadow the less spectacular but no less far-reaching and significant efforts to understand our home planet—efforts that have in recent years produced massive quantities of new data and, beyond that, a radically new way of looking at the Earth: a new worldview, a Whole Earth approach, a global concept. As a result, it no longer suffices to update older texts with a scattering of new facts or to write new ones based on older models. This genuinely new text, prepared by the chairman of the geophysics course team at England's Open University, bases itself firmly (but undogmatically) on these new discoveries, in particular on "knowledge of the large-scale features of the Earth's surface and interior in both their static and dynamic contexts. This is the global picture of the Earth as perceived by today's Earth scientist, although it carries with it no implication that will necessarily stand for all time without change, or even without radical change." The book opens with a general chapter summarizing this global picture, which is followed by three topics—chapters carefully designed to present three different aspects of geophysics and three different approaches to the science. Among them, they explore the Earth's crust, mantle, and core, but Smith has chosen to examine a few aspects in some detail rather than treat many in passing. This, in a sense, is a case-study text: it is meant for undergraduates, and only simple mathematics is called upon. The first topic is "The Earth's Crust and Uppermost Mantle." This typifies the observational branch of geophysicsand draws its conclusions from experimental evidence supported by a broad data base. The second treats "The Earth's Heat and Thermal Properties," a subject that Smith calls "the most important of all branches of geophysics." Nevertheless, the material presented here is not well covered in most texts, at least in part because it represents a speculative approach to geophysics,in the sense that processes that occur deep within the Earth must be inferred from very few clear data, and they may be interpreted in quite different ways. The last topic is "Earthquakes: Characteristics, Prediction, and Modification." This is a subject of everyday interest and, in some parts of the world, of day-by-day interest—here, the frames of reference of "human time" and "geological time" coincide. Because of its social ramifications, this topical subject might be called an example of applied geophysics.

Our planet is currently experiencing substantial changes due to natural phen- ena and direct or indirect human interactions. Observations from space are the only means to monitor and quantify these changes on a global and long-term p- spective. Continuous time series of a large set of Earth system parameters are needed in order to better understand the processes causing these changes, as well as their interactions. This knowledge is needed to build comprehensive Earth s- tem models used for analysis and prediction of the changing Earth. Geodesy and geophysics contribute to the understanding of system Earth through the observation of global parameter sets in space and time, such as tectonic motion, Earth surface deformation, sea level changes and gravity, magnetic and atmospheric elds. In the framework of the German geoscience research and development p- gramme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN, research projects related to the theme “Observing the Earth System from Space” have been funded within two consecutive phases since 2002, both covering 3 years. The projects address data analysis and model development using the satellite missions CHAMP, GRACE, GOCE and comp- mentary ground or airborne observations. The results of the rst phase projects have been published in the Springer book, titled “Observation of the Earth System from Space”, edited by Flury, Rummel, Reigber, Rothacher, Boedecker and Schreiber in 2006. The present book, titled “System Earth via Geodetic-Geophysical Space Techniques” summarizes in 40 scienti c papers the results of eight coordinated research projects funded in the second phase of this programme (2005–2008).
