Elements of 3–D Seismology, 2nd Edition

Christopher L. Liner

 

This is a thorough introduction to the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of 3-D seismic data. Developed from university courses, the text teaches the fundamentals of 3-D seismic theory, techniques, and application.

The author presents:
• Conceptual and historical foundations of modern reflection seismology
• Overview of seismic wave phenomena in acoustic, elastic, and porous media
• Acquisition principles for land and marine seismic surveys
• Methods used to create 2-D and 3-D seismic images from field data
• Concepts of dip moveout, prestack migration, and depth migration
• Concepts and limitations of 3-D seismic interpretation for structure, stratigraphy, and rock property estimation
• The interpretation role of attributes, impedance estimation, and AVO

Key Features
• Learn the language and concepts of acquiring, processing, and interpreting 3-D seismic data
• Learn the central role a calibrated rock model plays in reservoir interpretation
• Learn how to deal effectively with design, economic, and quality control issues
• Understand the range of 3-D seismic applications to exploration, production, and reservoir management problems
• Calculate economic feasibility and rate of return on 3-D surveys
• Learn about reservoir fluids, prestack data, and resolution

CD items include several QuickTime movies related to topics in the book, plus SeisCom7 for rapid calculation of 2-D and 3-D seismic quantities.
