Module content
Laboratory classes:
  1. Processing of seismic data

    Creation of the project and database in specialized program. Principles of seismic data processing system (processing sequence design, selection of parameters of individual procedures). Gain control procedures (AGC TAR) and data visualization. Interactive edition of seismic traces. Interactive spectral analysis. First breaks picking with use of crosscorrelation or neural networks. Field and residual statics. Interactive velocity analysis. Horizontal stacking (seismic section). Noise suppression methods (eg. ground roll, multiples). Wavelet processing. Prestack or poststack migration.

  2. Advanced seismic data processing procedures

    Seismic migration – mathematical basis, types of migration.
    Time-depth conversion.
    Vertical Seismic Profiling – methodology, processing specificity.
    AVO analysis – mathematical basis, processing specificity.
