This article aims to be an in-depth article about building a workflow suited for proper use of the Common Reflection Surface. This resource is aimed at a specialist audience, however maybe this is a rare insight into the intricacies of seismic processing for some of our readers. The processing package for CRS is often regarded […]
I worked with the seismic processing algorithm Common Reflection Surface for the past years. During this time I have come to the following conclusion: CRS has a marketing problem. I have worked with CRS in university, at Fugro Seismic Imaging and Wester Geco, respectively Schlumberger. Its development is closely tied to advanced concepts like the […]
Seismic data processing is an art and a science. The open source software Seismic Unix has modules for over 20 migration routines, other packages do so as well. Before we get to choosing the best migration routine, there are a couple things anyone handling seismic data should remember. These are 7 Tips from my experience: […]
The final step in the work with seismic data is seismic interpretation. In a scientific field called geophysics, interpretation sounds highly subjective; Very different from the usual statistics, ray and wave phenomenae. This can’t be right, right? I’d love to say it’s very clear and seismic data reveals a perfect image of the subsurface. But […]
via George Takei Working with seismic data packages can be quite a hassle. The User Interface is stuck somewhere beyond the 80s’ and you wonder where you’re supposed to supply the punchcard. Has anyone tried this novel approach yet?
Did you ever wonder what employers actually want from you? Well, I did. Pretty much always. Seems like a huge mystery. So as I was updating my LinkedIn profile, I realized that I could tailor my profile to actually be found by companies looking for a geophysicist. They’re actually making it really easy on you […]
We send sound into the ground and listen what comes back to the surface. There are a lot of sources we can use to make this sound. A very basic but effective approach is to use a sledgehammer and bang it on a steel cap on the ground. This works well to get some acoustic […]
