Time Sequence Analysis in Geophysics

Author: E. R. Kanasewich
Publisher: University of Alberta
ISBN: 0888640749
Release Date: 1981
Genre: Science

Time sequence analysis is the study of relations between a sequence of data points or sequence of signals in order to determine the physical properties of the earth. Providing an up-to-date treatment on time series and time sequence, this book is intended for senior or graduate students in seismology, geomagnetism and exploratory geophysics.

Deconvolution and Inverse Theory

Author: V. Dimri
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483291376
Release Date: 2013-10-22
Genre: Science

This is the first study to present simultaneously both deconvolution and inversion, two powerful tools of data analysis. Featured within this volume are various geophysical convolution models and a treatment of deconvolution for a time-varying signal. The single channel time-varying deconvolution is shown equivalent to the multichannel time-invariant deconvolution, thus a formalism and associated algorithms can handle both. Inverse theory as well as various inversion schemes are presented on the basis of a relationship between a small perturbation to the model and its effects on the observation. The information theory inversion scheme is discussed, and several types of norm of minimization presented. Additionally, concepts and results of inverse theory are applied to design a new deconvolution operator for estimating magnetization and density distribution, and the constraint of the Backus-Gilbert formalism of inverse theory is used to design a new prediction error filter for maximum entropy spectral estimates. Maximum likelihood, another high resolution method is also presented. This volume can be utilised as a graduate-level text for courses in Geophysics. Some chapters will be of use for graduate courses in Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics, and Oceanography.

Applied Time Series Analysis II

Author: David F. Findley
Publisher: Academic Press
ISBN: 9781483263908
Release Date: 2014-05-10
Genre: Mathematics

Applied Time Series Analysis II contains the proceedings of the Second Applied Time Series Symposium Held in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on March 3-5, 1980. The symposium provided a forum for discussing significant advances in time series analysis and signal processing. Effective alternatives to the familiar least-square and maximum likelihood procedures are described, along with maximum likelihood procedures for modeling irregularly sampled series and for classifying non-stationary series. Comprised of 22 chapters, this volume begins with an introduction to the multidimensional filtering theory and presents specific case histories related to the multidimensional recursive filter stability problem; the least squares inverse problem; realization of filters; and spectral estimation. The unique properties of the three-dimensional wave equation are also considered. Subsequent chapters focus on high-resolution spectral estimators; time series analysis of geophysical inverse scattering problems; minimum entropy deconvolution; and fitting of a continuous time autoregression to discrete data. This monograph will appeal to students and practitioners in the fields of mathematics and statistics, electrical and electronics engineering, and information and computer sciences.

Geod sie

Author: Wolfgang Torge
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 9783110198171
Release Date: 2008-08-22
Genre: Science

Das Buch gibt einen systematischen Überblick über die grundlegenden Theorien, die Bezugssysteme und die Mess- und Auswertemethoden der Geodäsie, wobei der Beitrag der geodätischen Raumtechniken zur Positionierung und zur Schwerefeldbestimmung besonders herausgestellt wird. Diese Methoden haben auch zu einem für die Praxis wichtigen Wandel in der Einrichtung geodätischer Grundlagennetze geführt. Zur interdisziplinären Geodynamikforschung kann die Geodäsie damit ebenfalls wesentliche Beiträge leisten. Der gegenwärtige Stand der Geodäsie wird durch eine Vielzahl von Beispielen aus Messung, Auswertung und Analyse illustriert, ein umfangreiches Literaturverzeichnis erleichtert ein weitergehendes Studium. Das Buch vermittelt einen umfassenden Überblick über die tiefgreifenden Veränderungen, welche die Geodäsie in den vergangenen zwanzig Jahren erfahren hat.
