Geophysicists, geologists, engineers and technical staff who want to understand the theory and learn how to apply these increasingly critical techniques.
This course covers the theory and practical use of AVO, an interactive program that is fully linked within HampsonRussell software and performs Amplitude versus Offset modeling and analysis. Topics covered include:- Introduction: Basic seismic wave principles, Poisson’s ratio, gas saturation, Biot-Gassmann equations, and lithologic examples - AVO Theory: Zoeppritz’s equations, Aki-Richards and Shuey’s approximation, elastic wave modeling, and impact of anistropy.- AVO Analysis: AVO attributes, processing concerns, interpretation of AVO measurements, AVO crossplotting - AVO Inversion: Simultaneous pre-stack inversion, Lambda-Mu-Rho, and elastic impedance
1 1/2 day
A basic understanding of geophysics - such as knowing the difference between post-stack and pre-stack seismic data, what a wavelet is etc.
