25 – Seismic Acquisition / Modeling Exercise
What you will learn
- Basic understanding of seismic data acquisition and processing concepts
- Step-by-step procedures for modeling logs for seismic purposes
- “Computer ready” mathematics
- Insight into log quality problems that affect seismic models
This course covers some basic topics concerning seismic data acquisition and processing, and is intended as a primer for non-geophysicists who work on log analysis in support of geophysical projects. You will learn about the various types of seismic acquisition methods, acoustic velocity, and time to depth conversions. Depending on your knowledge of the seismic industry, you may want to run these lectures in the order 25, then 21 thru 24 and save the self-exam in Lecture 25 for the end of your studies on Seismic Petrophysics.
- Crain’s Integrated Petrophysics, Lectures 1 to 13 or equivalent background.
- Basic understanding of geology and well logging.
- Seismic Concepts for Non-Geophysicists
- Seismic Data Acquisition
- Seismic Velocity Analysis Techniques
- Calculating Seismic Velocity From Logs
- Calculating Interval Velocity From Seismic
- Time to Depth Conversions
