Petroacoustics Book (free online)

I got this email today from Patric Rasolofosaon, whom I met at my DISC lecture in Paris. He is a world authority on poroelasticity and has a new book co-authored with Bernard Zinszner.  They have altruistically made the book free online. Chapters 1-3 (of 7) are available now

It is a rare treat when a first-class scientist writes a book synthesizing the state of knowledge and experimental evidence in any field.  On behalf of geophysicists everywhere, thank you Patrick (and Bernard)!


Dear Colleagues,

My co-author, Bernard Zinszner,  and myself are pleased to announce the publication of our book entitled ‘Petroacoustics – A tool for Applied Seismics –‘ on the website of the eBooks of IFP Energies nouvelles
( ... Free download!).   We are very much interested in your feedback. So please do not hesitate to contact us.

By the way, please could you pass the info among your students. Indeed we are also very much interested in  Students' feedback.  Because as we wrote somewhere in the book,  the Rock Acoustics courses taught at IFP School and at the Universities Pierre et Marie Curie and Denis Diderot of Paris, and the numerous questions of the students have also greatly stimulated the writing of this book.

Thanks very much in advance for passing the information.

Best regards,

Patrick Rasolofosaon and Bernard Zinszner
