Digital Imaging and Deconvolution: The ABCs of Seismic Exploration and Processing, by Enders A. Robinson and Sven Treitel, covers the basic ideas and methods used in seismic processing, concentrating on the fundamentals of seismic imaging and deconvolution. Many of the seismic methods in popular use today go back to the work of some of the great scientists of past centuries. The ideas are developed from the ground up. Most chapters in the book are followed by problem sets. Some exercises are designed to supplement the material presented in the text; others are meant to stimulate classroom discussions. There are few industrial-grade illustrations. Instead, both the text and the exercises deal mostly with simple examples that often can be solved with nothing more than a pencil and paper. Each chapter is as self-contained as possible to make it easier for a reader to concentrate on topics of particular interest. The book covers such basic topics as wave motion; digital imaging; digital filtering; various visualization aspects of the seismic reflection method; sampling theory; the frequency spectrum; synthetic seismograms; wavelets and wavelet processing; deconvolution; the need for continuing interaction between the seismic interpreter and the computer; seismic attributes; phase rotation; and seismic attenuation. The last of the 15 chapters gives a detailed mathematical overview. Digital Imaging and Deconvolution will be of interest to professional geophysicists as well as graduate students and upper-level undergraduates in geophysics. The book also will be helpful to scientists and engineers in other disciplines who use digital signal processing to analyze and image wave-motion data in remote-detection applications. In particular, the methods described in this book are important in optical imaging, video imaging, medical and biological imaging, acoustical analysis, radar, and sonar.

The book was crispy clean just like a new one. I LOVE eeeverything about it...Thanks

I feel bad writing a negative review of this book, as I'm sure it was a labor of love for the revered "Svenders", who wanted to try to make life easier for those new to the field of seismic imaging. I will nevertheless proceed, as I was quite disappointed by this book and hope that my review will prevent others from feeling the same way.

My principal objection to the book is the writing style. In some chapters most paragraphs begin with a question. I suspect the idea was that the reader is supposed to spend a moment pondering "What is this symbol Z?" and then eagerly read the paragraph to hopefully discover the answer, but it becomes rather irritating and makes the book feel more like a collection of flash cards rather than a smooth, continuous development of the topic. To illustrate, chapter 5 (Filtering) begins with the question "What is digital filtering?". The paragraph goes on to tell us that analog filters are studied in the frequency domain, whereas digital filters are studied in the time domain, and then a little bit about impulse response. The reader may feel at this point that the the question hasn't really been answered yet, and so proceeds to the second paragraph. This, mercifully, does not begin with another question, but tells us that Z transforms and the amplitude and phase spectra are important, and then goes on to tell us what a causal digital filter is. Can you guess what the next paragraph is about? It starts with the question "What is a causal digital filter?", and then repeats what has just been said in the previous paragraph. Perhaps it was because I was already irritated by the constant questions, but I was also annoyed by space wasted on inconsequential remarks (perhaps in an attempt to sound chatty), which could instead have been used to share with us some of the authors' insights. We are, for example, informed in chapter 8 ("Synthetics") that "If the digital computer were to disappear, no additional significant oil discoveries would be made. No further space exploration would be done. Promising avenues in science and medicine would be abandoned. Business and finance would be crippled. The Internet would disappear." Imagine!

The book does of course contain useful information, but be aware that it is an irritating read and does not delve very deep.
