About this book

There is something for every subsurface professional in these fifty-two short essays by more than three dozen petroleum geoscientists. The roster includes some of the most prolific geophysicists of our time, as well as some recently qualified scientists. The topics are even more diverse, ranging from anisotropic media to pre-stack interpretation, and from stories of early seismic workstations to career advice for the future.

"The bite-sized pieces of advice will be most useful to students starting out in the field. It's a fundamental truth that it is way more efficient to progress in your discipline if you gaze at the horizon standing on the shoulders of those who came before [...] This book should make a useful addition to any new geophysicist's library!"
– Henry Posamentier
