GG5530 PICP IV: Seismic Mapping and Interpretation
Figure 1. 3D view of the West Cameron 3D seismic survey (Gulf of Mexico)
highlighting a Miocene meandering channel.
Objective: Students learn the fundamentals of mapping and interpreting
seismic reflection sections and well log data. The goal is to integrate
2-D seismic, 3-D seismic, and log data and identify the location and size
of hydrocarbon deposits. All interpretation will be conducted with the 3-D
interpretation software by Landmark on workstations.
Field data sets will be used for the laboratory
Prerequisites are a knowledge of
geology and some math. Who Should Take This Class? Any earth science student
who wants to learn modern computerized interpretation methods.
