Covering spectral analysis as well as inversion of geophysical data, David Gubbins introduces the necessary theory and techniques and then demonstrates how they may be practically applied to interpret various types of geophysical signals, including seismic, magnetic and gravity data. Featuring summary boxes, extensive mathematical and computing exercises (solutions and software available on the Internet), and a set of mathematical appendices, this textbook will prove invaluable to geophysics students and instructors.

'... this excellent textbook fills a much neglected gap ... the group that will benefit most from its guidance will be future generations of geophysics students ...' Journal of Geological Magazine 'For the student, this is an excellent text well suited for its intended level of instruction with many exercises following each chapter, some requiring computer programs obtainable from various web sites. ... I suggest that any instructor planning to teach time series and inverse theory examine this book as a potential text . ... In summary, this book has more than adequately filled the role for which it was written, namely as a text for introductory courses in time series analysis and inverse theory.' The Leading Edge "Any body with an interest in geophysical time series and inverse problems is truly well served with this beautifully written volume.' The Leading Edge
