Simply defined, seismic interpretation is the science (and art) of inferring the geology at some depth from the processed seismic record. While modern multichannel data have increased the quantity and quality of interpretable data, proper interpretation still requires that the interpreter draw upon his or her geological understanding to pick the most likely interpretation from the many. Pitfalls in Seismic Interpretation (Society of Exploration Geophysicists Monograph Series, Number 2). by Tucker, Paul M. and Howard J. Yorston. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at All interpretation projects include a number of tasks which must be completed in order to meet project objectives. The sequence in which these tasks are performed is commonly referred to as an interpretation work flow; in general terms, a work flow is an outline of the steps in a procedure for doing level of detail in an interpretation work flow can vary depending on how an. This book was written to be an introduction to the geologic interpretation of seismic data. Seismic interpreters can be geologists, geophysicists, and even engineers. To be effective, it is necessary to teach geologists (and engineers) a bit of geophysics, and geophysicists (and engineers) a bit of geology.5/5(3).

Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Seismic Amplitude: An Interpreter's Handbook/5(15). Basic Seismic Interpretation by Donald A. Herron and Robert C. Wegner. This course provides entry-level training in seismic interpretation and serves as a foundation for intermediate and advanced geophysics/seismic courses. Basics of Seismic Interpretation. The lesson uses the basics seismic reflection principles, and allows the student to apply them to interpret a geologic framework, conduct a data analysis, prospect for hydrocarbons, and then assess whether the basin should be bid on and provide an economic analysis. At this point in the lecture series. @article{osti_, title = {Practical seismic interpretation}, author = {Badley, M.E.}, abstractNote = {This book offers a presentation of the practical aspects of reflection seismic interpretation, written by a working explorationist for explorationists. Focusing on the everyday problems facing the working interpreter, this book has a geological emphasis and is aimed especially to those.

3-D seismic data have become the key tool used in the petroleum industry to understand the subsurface. In addition to providing excellent structural images, the dense sampling of a 3-D survey makes it possible to map reservoir quality and the distribution of oil and gas. Topics covered in this book include basic structural interpretation and map-making; the use of 3-D visualisation methods.   Quantitative Seismic Interpretation demonstrates how rock physics can be applied to predict reservoir parameters, such as lithologies and pore fluids, from seismically derived attributes. The authors provide an integrated methodology and practical tools for quantitative interpretation, uncertainty assessment, and characterization of subsurface Brand: Cambridge University Press. Practical Seismic Interpretation M. E. Badley D. Reidel, ; ISBN: ; Dfl ,00/£ I write this review at a time when seismic interpreters just starting out in the oil industry are looking over their shoulders at the price of oil and thinking of their careers. So has Badley's book come at an inopportune moment? Seismic Amplitude Interpretation Author(s) The book identifies components of the seismic response best suited for differentiating pore fluid from lithologic effects. Field examples emphasize what combination of seismic signatures should be expected for different rock-property environments. The last part examines the numerous amplitude.
