    Per Sheriff (U. of Houston), this update of the 1991 iteration incorporates such new developments in the field as the routine use of seismic data and the recognition that "...most of what we formerly considered noise is actually geologic signal that we did not understand." The entries cover terms from "a" (the SI symbol for year) to "z-transform" (for representing time series). Includes excerpts from the preface to the first edition (The glossary of terms used in geophysical exploration, 1968), and supporting reference tables and figures (some in color). Appendices include material on units and symbols; geological time; and the Prem model for spherically symmetric earth. Presumably, the CD-ROM is an electronic version of the dictionary.
