This publication introduces methodologies for subsurface imaging established upon asymptotic and trajectory-based tools for modeling fluid circulate, delivery and deformation. It describes trajectory-based imaging from its mathematical formula, in the course of the building and resolution of the imaging equations, to the overview of the accuracy and determination linked to the picture. particular in its strategy, it offers a unified framework for the whole spectrum of actual phenomena from wave-like hyperbolic difficulties to diffusive parabolic difficulties and non-linear difficulties of combined personality. the sensible points of imaging, rather effective and powerful equipment for updating excessive answer geologic versions utilizing fluid circulate, shipping and geophysical facts, are emphasised in the course of the ebook. whole with on-line software program purposes and examples that let readers to realize hands-on event, this quantity is a useful source for graduate-level classes, in addition to for educational researchers and practitioners within the fields of geoscience, hydrology, and petroleum and environmental engineering.
