Add a review


CD-Rom publication comprising 3 CDs. The Atlas explains the rationale, utility and philosophy of BIRPS in its aquisition of deep seismic data for the UK geoscience community between 1989 and 1998. The text and figures show the reader what features and results to look for in data sets. The digital data allow the user to pursue individual interests in greater depth. Numerous references are provided as well as over 120 figures that illustrate the expertise in acquisition, processing and interpreting deep seismic reflection profiles that the group developed over its 18 years. No other national seismic programme has produced integrated text, figures and data as here. This is a highly specialised subject involving costly data aquisition. Its important results are not broadly known and readily available. The CDs will be of benefit to a wide range of geoscientists. The first CD contains ten chapters of text describing surveys and research results by thematic topics in a format that is fully portable across all computer platforms. The other two CDs contain BIRPS digital stacked sections (SEG-Y format) with location details and software to read them and do basic interpretation of the data on PCs.
