This group at the Colorado School of Mines has a unique perspective on reflection seismology, as it has been developed for and practiced by the exploration community within the oil industry during the last 25 years. This reviewer thinks that nowhere else in academia are applied mathematicians and geophysicists working so fruitfully in such close proximity, sharing students and joint research seminars, as at CSM.
