Summary and Info
Introduction to Petroleum Seismology provides the basic theoretical and practical background needed to tackle present and future challenges of petroleum seismology, especially those related to seismic data acquisition and imaging and to reservoir characterization and monitoring. The first part of the book evolves from first principles of physics to the fundamentals of elastodynamic wave propagation, the building blocks for seismic analysis. The second part discusses modern developments in petroleum seismology such as multicomponent data, multiple elimination, amplitude variation with offset and azimuth analysis and inversion, anisotropy, and linear anelasticity. Aspects of Fourier and wavelet representations of seismic signals and the fundamentals of higher-order statistics for analyzing seismic signals also are treated. The comprehensiveness of this book makes it a suitable text for undergraduate and graduate courses that target geophysicists and engineers as well as a guide and reference work for researchers and professionals in academia and in the petroleum industry. The book is illustrated with color figures and provides a wide range of examples and problems.Also Available: Carbonate Seismology (Geophysical Development Series, V. 6.) - ISBN 1560800380
