Webinar (SAS): Introduction to Applied Depth Imaging


The Houston Geophysical Society advise of a webinar on Applied Depth Imaging to be held over four days.

The goal of this course is for the participant to gain an understanding of the basic concepts and practical aspects used in depth velocity model building and depth imaging in an intuitive manner. The participant will be exposed to depth imaging practices currently in use through the description of workflows illustrated with synthetic and field data examples for a variety of complex geology scenarios. The theoretical content is kept to a minimum required to emphasize the practical aspects. This course is designed for geophysicists, geoscientists, geologists, time processors, junior depth imagers and seismic and geologic interpretation specialists seeking a practical understanding of depth velocity model building and imaging.

1. Introduction to the course
2. Depth migration fundamentals
3. Understanding seismic velocities     
4. Practical understanding of velocity anisotropy
5. Review of velocity estimation methods used for depth imaging 
6. Seismic data conditioning for depth imaging
7. Isotropic and anisotropic velocity model building and imaging in practice
8. Optimization of seismic images for a more reliable geologic interpretation
9. Overview of emerging velocity model building and imaging methods
