GEO-8126 Practical Seismic Processing 5 stp

Course contents

The course will give a concise and practical treatment of the theoretical basis and philosophy for constructing each module in a typical seismic processing sequence, from loading the field data to the finished processed section. It provides a comprehensive overview of the steps that are commonly applied in seismic data processing and discusses their inherent assumptions, strengths and weaknesses. Through several practical exercises, participants will gain a working knowledge of the different processing methods and enable them to assess the quality of a processing result. The exercises will cover processing of a 2D seismic line, with documentation and reasoning for choosing processing parameters during the different steps.
