Investigations in Geophysics No 14: 3-D Seismic Imaging
Seismic images are crucial to today's exploration and reservoir monitoring. This book presents fundamental concepts and cutting edge methods for imaging reflection seismic data. The book coherently presents the main components of seismic imaging - data-acquisition geometry, migration, and velocity estimation - by exposing the links that intertwine them. The book emphasizes graphical understanding over theoretical development. Several synthetic and field data examples illustrate the presentation of mathematical algorithms. The volume includes a DVD that contains a subset (C3-narrow-azimuth classic data set) of the SEG-EAGE salt data set and of the corresponding velocity model. The DVD also includes a complete set of PDF slides that can be used to teach the material presented in the book.
