The Rock Physics Handbook addresses the relationships between geophysical observations and the underlying physical properties of rocks. It distills a vast quantity of background theory and laboratory results into a series of concise chapters that provide practical solutions to problems in geophysical data interpretation. This expanded second edition presents major new chapters on statistical rock physics and velocity-porosity-clay models for clastic sediments. Other new and expanded topics include anisotropic seismic signatures, borehole waves, models for fractured media, poroelastic models, and attenuation models. This new edition also provides an enhanced set of appendices with key empirical results, data tables, and an atlas of reservoir rock properties - extended to include carbonates, clays, gas hydrates, and heavy oils. Supported by a website hosting MATLAB ® routines for implementing the various rock physics formulas, this book is a vital resource for advanced students and university faculty, as well as petroleum industry geophysicists and engineers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reviews of the first edition: 'The Rock Physics Handbook ... has stood on my shelf for many years as a succinct, readable volume both for reference and numerical recipes in rock physics and seismic wave propagation.' Surveys in Geophysics
'... covers a wide range of topics and brings together most of the theoretical and laboratory work of rock physics which is necessary for the interpretation of seismic data ... an excellent reference text.' Geological Magazine
'... an invaluable single volume reference of material otherwise widely scattered in the literature.' Mineral Planning
"The concise structure of the articles, confined to mathematical equations with clearly presented assumptions and limitations, makes the content a handy tool for the solution of earl problems encountered in geological and geophysical research. ... Geophysical researchers and students, as well as petroleum engineers and environmental geoscientists will value the book for its practical problem solving." - Pure and Applied Geophysics
"...concisely written, comprehensive and extremely well presented and thus comes highly recommended." - The Leading Edge
