This e-book is written for complicated earth technology scholars, geologists, petroleum engineers and others who are looking to get speedy ‘up to hurry’ at the interpretation of mirrored image seismic facts. it's a improvement of fabric given to scholars at the MSc path in Petroleum Geology at Aberdeen college and takes the shape of a path guide instead of a scientific textbook. it may be used as a self-contained path for person study, or because the foundation for a category programme.
The booklet clarifies these features of the topic that scholars are inclined to locate tough, and offers insights via functional tutorials which objective to enhance and deepen knowing of key subject matters and supply the reader with a degree of suggestions on growth. a few tutorials may possibly merely contain drawing easy diagrams, yet many are computer-aided (PC dependent) with snap shots output to offer perception into key steps in seismic info processing or into the seismic reaction of a few universal geological eventualities. half I of the publication covers uncomplicated rules and it ends with tutorials in 2-D structural interpretation. half II concentrates at the present seismic mirrored image contribution to reservoir experiences, in line with 3-D data.
