The Art and Science of Seismic Interpretation (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)

Buy
Seismic data is one of the fundamental tools used to interpret subsurface geology with application to understanding of earth processes, tectonic evolution, and energy exploration in particular. This book is written for technical specialists who are new to seismic geophysics. It introduces the seismic data set including how the data are acquired and processed in order to produce 2D and 3D images of the subsurface and how its interpretation is applied to the exploration and development of hydrocarbon resources. A brief summary of the evolution of the US oil and gas industry is included to provide a historical context within which the field of seismic geophysics developed and is applied. The seismic approach started as a method to image and interpret subsurface structure. Its application evolved well beyond that as vertical resolution and image quality improved and as various seismic attributes became more readily computed and understood. Today’s seismic applications include the evaluation of the full array of petroleum systems elements including the prediction of source rock presence and degree of maturity, reservoir distribution, trap geome try, and seal capacity. Current seismic interpretation extends beyond these conven tional aspects as the energy industry expands into the world of unconventional resources. This is driven by the need for a better understanding of subsurface bulk rock properties and frac-induced microseismicity. As an introductory text, this book provides a general overview of seismic principles, processing, and interpretation based on over 60 years of combined experience of the authors. The goal is to pro vide a general understanding of the technique and its application as a starting point for students and early career professionals. Each chapter includes citations and ref erences selected by the authors as key publications that provide the next level of detail regarding specific topics discussed in this volume.

System Center Operations Manager 2007 Unleashed
The process of operations management is a combination of people, procedures, and tools—all three are necessary, and the absence of one component can put an entire enterprise solution at risk. At a more granular level, operations management is about correlating what may appear to be seemingly unrelated events and data across machines to...
