ISBN-13: 9781444332636

This booklet is written for complicated earth technological know-how scholars, geologists, petroleum engineers and others who are looking to get speedy ‘up to hurry’ at the interpretation of mirrored image seismic facts. it's a improvement of fabric given to scholars at the MSc path in Petroleum Geology at Aberdeen collage and takes the shape of a direction 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 booklet clarifies these facets of the topic that scholars are likely to locate tricky, and gives insights via useful tutorials which objective to enhance and deepen figuring out of key themes and supply the reader with a degree of suggestions on growth. a few tutorials may perhaps merely contain drawing uncomplicated diagrams, yet many are computer-aided (PC established) with images output to provide perception into key steps in seismic information processing or into the seismic reaction of a few universal geological eventualities. half I of the e-book covers uncomplicated rules and it ends with tutorials in 2-D structural interpretation. half II concentrates at the present seismic mirrored image contribution to reservoir reports, in accordance with 3-D data.

Sample text

The amplitudes are expressed as binary numbers, each number being recorded as a short sequence of electrical pulses marking the digits (ones and zeros) of the binary number code. 11). 11 Different ways of expressing and recording the decimal number 22. Measurement of the signal amplitudes is done by an electronic unit called an analogue-to-digital (A/D) convertor. The samples are measured at equally spaced sample intervals – generally 1, 2 or 4 ms for reflection seismic records. In the course of recording in the field, all seismic channels are sampled essentially simultaneously and the samples are recorded as a data block on magnetic tape or disk.

A. Sound from an explosive source is reflected from any surface which separates rocks with different sound velocities. Typical velocities are shown in m/s. b. The reflected sound pulses build up an image of the strata scaled vertically in two-way time (TWT). Section modelled in program SYNTHSEC. The echoes are recorded at the surface as separate pulses of sound, and successive pulses may well overlap so that the final recording from a single receiver takes the form of an extended wave train several seconds in length.

Select Spectra/Draw: note zero phase shift on all components. 3. Set signal length to 200 ms and draw the signal (you can ignore a title). Since all components have zero phase shift, the wavelet is symmetrical and peaks at the t = 0 axis. e. how much of the ripple waveform to either side should be included. 4. By clicking on the spectral lines, taper off the high frequency components in the amplitude spectrum with the following values: 96 Hz, 25%; 88 Hz, 50%; 80 Hz, 75% – then re-draw the signal.
