But, in my opinion, Charles' greatest contribution to science is his book Elementary Seismology. It is sometimes thought of as a textbook, but it is far more than that; it is a truly remarkable compendium of almost everything seismological, with a strong emphasis on field aspects of the science. However, textbooks to accompany the ever-changing field of petroleum seismology are very limited; Exploration Seismology (Sheriff and Geldart, , revised ) is one of the few examples. We hope our book will add significantly to the achievements of Sheriff and Geldart.

The book is designed to give a comprehensive up-to-date picture of the applications of seismology. Exploration Seismology's comprehensiveness makes it suitable as a text for undergraduate courses for geologists, geophysicists and engineers, as well as a guide and reference work for practising professionals.

For many years this was the best quantitative seismology book but now. Book Review | Janu Elementary Seismologyby Charles F. Richter (San Francisco: W. Freeman and Company, viii + pp., with figures and 47 tables. $). Seismology is a data-driven science and its most important discoveries usually result from analysis of new data sets or development of new data analysis methods.

Most seismologists spend most of their time studying seismo-grams, which are simply a record of Earth motion at a particular place as a function of time.

The first lecturer I had on seismology strongly recommended this book by Professor Peter Shearer: As Professor Shearer describes: “My goal of this book is to produce a readable, concise introduction to the qualitative aspects of seismology that is.Seismology – science dealing with earthquakes Seismic engineering – the discipline the aim of which is to construct infrastructures and buildings resistant to earthquake and similar phenomena impacts and by this way to protect human lives and health and human property.
