This two-volume handbook presents advanced research and operational information about hard minerals and hydrocarbons. It provides information in an integrated, interdisciplinary manner, stressing case histories. It includes review chapters, illustrations, graphs, tables, and color satellite images that present the results of gravity, geodetic, and seismic surveys and of 3-D sea floor sub-bottom visualizations. The data was obtained using satellites, aircraft, and ships from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea. Major topics addressed in these volumes include geophysical methods used to explore for hydrocarbons, advanced radiometric and electrical methods for hard mineral searches, the role of geotechnology and seismic acoustics in overcoming geological hazards in selecting drilling sites and pipeline routes, and remote sensing techniques used to determine the physical properties of sediments.

Dr. Richard A. Geyer has had a diversified career in geophysics and oceanography in both the industrial and academic sectors. He received his B.S. in Geology in 1937 from New York University and his Ph.D. in Geophysics from Princeton University in 1951. Beginning at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (1943-1946), he continued in oceanography as head of the Oceanographic Section of Humble Oil Co., Technical Director of Oceanography at Texas Instruments, and finally as head of the Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M University (1966-1978). His activities in geophysics include periods as manager of the Gravity and Magnetic Departments of Geophysical Service, Inc., and adjunct professor of Marine Geology & Geophysics at the University of Houston. He is presently consulting in Exploration Geophysics and since September 1989 has served as adjunct professor of the Offshore Technology Research Center of Texas A&M University.
