Course Objective

This course is designed to show a good understanding of subsurface activity for which geophysical techniques are essential. An overview is given of the methods employed in the oil industry with the main emphasis on seismic techniques. Aspects of rock types and stratification together with seismic acquisition and processing are given together with mapping and interpretation.
