Abstract

Albert Einstein once said, “The theory must be as simple as possible. But not more simple!” He was talking about the fundamental laws of physics, but we can apply this advice to our business. The art of geophysics lies in finding the appropriate approximations to describe the complexities of the real world in useful ways, ways which will help us understand our data. We do this through a long series of approximate models, each of which progressively violates what we know to be a more fundamental reality.
