Geophysical Books in the Grad Office

On the shelf in the Geophysics graduate office on the first floor of SR1 is a small compilation of geophysics related books that are available to use.  These books were donated by Marathon Oil and the Hilterman/SEG Foundation.  We are working on geting more references for students to help with their research and geophysics studies.  Again, these are freely available to use, but please return promptly and do not remove them from UH campus so others can also use them.  Below is a list of the books available as of 10/13/2011.
