However, the benefits of the lab do not apply only to students of seismology. The benefit to non-seismologists includes experience working with uncensored data — the good and the bad.
The analyses generally include simple least-squares fitting, data weighting throwing away the obviously bad stuff , and estimating uncertainties. These are valuable, transferable skills for any scientific discipline. You must be logged in to post a comment. Thorne Lay. Parameter Estimation and Inverse Problems.

Introduction to Seismology - Peter Shearer - Google книги
Verified Purchase. This is one of six seismology books I have recently purchased.
They all complement each other. This is a good book with a difficulty of level of about 3 out of 5. I have no problem with the math in it even 50 years after graduate level math courses. I bought it to evaluate data from my home built seismograph which has picked up about 25 events in two months from all over the world. There is much information in it that doesn't require higher math. A bit over my head haven't used calculus in decades. But otherwise an interesting read on how seismology works.
It was on my husband's wishlist. He seemed to love it even though it was a textbook. If you are interested in Seismology or the topography of the planet
