Seismic Data Analysis
Oz Yilmaz’s renowned text now available
It is here! Oz Yilmaz’s renowned Seismic Data Analysis is now fully available as an open access book. With its launch, SEG’s two best-selling books – Seismic Data Analysis and Sheriff’s Encyclopedia Dictionary of Applied Geophysics – are freely available to read, edit, and grow through your contributions! According to Yilmaz:
- A geophysicist, who practices seismic data processing, inversion, and interpretation, would want to have a quick reference under his/her fingertips for the theory and practice of all processing methods and algorithms, for determining an optimum processing sequence with optimum parameters for each step --- whether it is for AVO inversion or for earth imaging in time and depth. Now, via SEG Wiki, you can access Seismic Data Analysis to obtain the information you need.
The 2nd Annual SEG Wikithon will be held October 26-29 in Denver, CO during the SEG International Exposition and 84th Annual Meeting. Please help us design sessions that meet your needs.

About the SEG Wiki
The goal of the SEG Wiki is: expanding the world’s knowledge of geophysics, creating a stronger science, and engaging emerging professionals in the field
Robert E. Sheriff's Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition seeded the SEG Wiki with its initial content. While this information originated in a tried and true print source, all entries in the SEG Wiki can and are encouraged to be modified, updated, and improved by members.
We encourage you to read and enhance the SEG Wiki to the best of your knowledge. Personalized support is always available. Add your layer to the science of geophysics today.
