Geophysical Acquisition Overview

Audience

Anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the geophysical chain of activities.

Content

This course introduces the geophysical methods used to explore the subsurface, and focuses on the most common method: seismic.

We review the different typical geographical environments (desert, swamp, marine) and the different types of equipment used and describe how operations are usually planned and conducted.

Key concepts are introduced through examples to understand how acquisition methods (broadband, wide-azimuth surveys, etc.) contribute to the enhanced resolution of seismic images, while maintaining high productivity standards.

 Learning Objectives

  • Describe the principles of geophysical acquisition
  • Understand the need for varying equipment
  • Comprehend living conditions in the field
  • List the key criteria which determine the choice of acquisition parameters
