Magnetic data traditionally have been used to map basement faulting, allowing geoscientists to have a better understanding of the structure of the overlying sedimentary section. Recent advances in acquisition, processing and interpretation techniques, however, have made it possible to map intra-sedimentary faulting and fractures as well.

To optimize subsurface geophysical interpretations, it is beneficial to place seismic attributes into the proper regional geological context; knowledge of regional geology may assist exploration/exploitation efforts in advance by high-grading attribute selection and attribute intersection for purposes of risk analysis.

The primary application of multicomponent seismic has been imaging within gas clouds or beneath obscuring shallow gas zones. By reasonable estimate, approximately three-quarters of the industry's 4C surveys have targeted such geophysical problems.

Michel T. Halbouty '30 Visiting Chair in Geology and Geophysics

The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University is pleased to announce the Michel T. Halbouty ’30 Visiting Chair (Visiting Professor) in Geology and Geophysics. Candidates should have a PhD in Geology, Geophysics or related field, be at the Associate or Full Professor rank or hold an equivalent title, and be highly accomplished scholars with an internationally recognized record of excellence in their field of study.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.
