In increasing numbers, geologists are interpreting reflection seismic data, especially in 3-D format. But, unlike industry-trained geophysicists, they often lack basic knowledge of how Anisotrophy (the difference between velocities measured perpendicular and parallel to a bedding unit), Velocity Anomalies (near surface and mid-section) and even Fresnel zones (vertical and lateral inspection distances along a CDP trace) have upon seismic imaging in time and depth.
The course is designed for geoscientists and engineers who are, or will soon be, involved in petroleum exploration and development.
