Dr. Vernik’s new book is Seismic Petrophysics in Quantitative InterpretationEarly praise for his book says it strikes “the right balance between the theory and practical application…[making] this manuscript unique among other publications (Kostia Azbel – Shell) and that Dr. Vernik “has outlined a workflow that elegantly handles the complexities of the subject while maintaining a practical point of view (Marco Perez – Apache).”
