The Seismic Wavefield provides a guide to the understanding of seismograms in terms of physical propagation processes within the Earth. The focus is on the observation of earthquakes and man-made sources on all scales, for both body waves and surface waves. Volume I begins with a survey of the structure of the Earth and the nature of seismic wave propagation using examples of observed seismograms. The second part provides a full development of the theoretical background for seismic waves. Volume II covers local and regional seismic events, global wave propagation, and the three-dimensional Earth. The combination of observation and theoretical development with a strong visual focus will greatly appeal to graduate students in seismology. The book will also be valuable to researchers and professionals in academia and the petroleum industry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book will be very valuable to students and researchers in the fields of seismology and petroleum industry.' Zentralblatt MATH
"...the book would be useful to seismologists wanting a quick mathematical reference for assistance in constructing a computer code." Michael Antolik, Harvard University
"Kennett's work is a thorough, unifying document that serves as an excellent introduction to the study of seismic wavefields." Michael A. Slawinski, The Leading Edge
"This book is beautifully produced, and the figures are well designed and refreshingly devoid of clutter...fine volume." Sven Treitel, The Leading Edge
