By William Ashcroft

This e-book is written for complex earth technological know-how scholars, geologists, petroleum engineers and others who are looking to get quick ‘up to hurry’ at the interpretation of mirrored image seismic info. it's a improvement of fabric given to scholars at the MSc direction 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 direction for person study, or because the foundation for a category programme.

The e-book clarifies these features of the topic that scholars are likely to locate tricky, and gives insights via sensible tutorials which target to augment and deepen figuring out of key subject matters and supply the reader with a degree of suggestions on development. a few tutorials may possibly merely contain drawing easy diagrams, yet many are computer-aided (PC established) with snap shots output to provide perception into key steps in seismic info processing or into the seismic reaction of a few universal geological eventualities. half I of the booklet covers simple rules and it ends with tutorials in 2-D structural interpretation. half II concentrates at the present seismic mirrored image contribution to reservoir reviews, in response to 3-D data.

Example text

Both R and S rotate at the same rate (ω) and are locked together a fixed angle (ϕ) apart. The angle ϕ is called the phase difference or phase shift, often just loosely referred to as ‘phase’ in the literature. In this case, where S lags behind R, we speak of OQ as having a negative phase shift or phase lag with respect to OP. Of course, it would be just as possible for OQ to have a positive phase shift or phase lead with respect to OP. 4 A second horizontal oscillatory motion is represented by the distance OQ linked to point S on the reference circle.

Redshaw, published by Cambridge University Press in 2003. 1 Overview A ‘signal’ is any physical measurement taken in the course of a geophysical survey and expressed as a graph of its variation with time or its variation with distance along ground surface or with depth down a borehole. Examples might include a seismogram expressing variation in ground motion with the passage of time at a fixed locality, or a gravity profile expressing variation of the Earth's gravity field along a survey line of traverse on the ground.
