EXTR 2570 - Introduction to Seismic Interpretation (3CR)


(2L, 2LB) Intended to provide an introduction to the interpretation of seismic reflection data. Seismic interpretation is currently the leading method for the exploration and development of oil and gas reserves. Students will learn to understand the seismic process, identify different structural styles from seismic data, interpret seismic sections in both two and three dimensions, relate subsurface stratigraphy to well data, develop a geologic model, create a basic stratigraphic framework using seismic stratigraphy, and prepare structure and other geological/geophysical maps. A basic knowledge of geology and physics is helpful.
