23 – Synthetic Seismograms
What you will learn
- Methods for seismic modeling and creation of synthetic seismograms from well logs
- “Computer ready” mathematics
- Insight into how log analysis can support geophysical models
This course provides quantitative methods for preparing seismic models and synthetic seismograms from sonic and density logs. You will learn the specialized techniques used to convert depth domain log data into the time domain of the seismic environment, how seismic wavelets are generated, and how they are convolved with the log data to generate synthetic seismograms. Numerous examples and case histories are included.
- Crain’s Integrated Petrophysics, Lectures 1 to 13 and 21 to 22 or equivalent background.
