Geoscience after IT: a view of the present and future impact of information technology on geoscience

Such a lot geoscientists are conscious of contemporary IT advancements, yet can't spend time on vague technicalities. Few have thought of their implications for the technological know-how as a complete. but the knowledge is relocating quick: digital supply of hyperlinked multimedia; criteria to aid interdisciplinary and geographic integration; new versions to symbolize and visualize our recommendations, and keep an eye on and deal with our actions; plummeting bills that strength the velocity.

V Fig. , parallel to) this targeted thin-bed sequence. The third criterion is the most important requirement for any seismic stratal surface that is to be used as a reference surface. Because this reference surface follows the apex of an areally continuous reflection peak, the basic premise of seismic stratigraphy is that this reference surface follows an impedance contrast that coincides with a stratal surface. Fig. 21 displays this crossline section view with four conformable surfaces (A, B, C, and D) that pass through the targeted thin-bed interval added to the profile.

The conclusion that a seismic reflection is chronostratigraphic or diachronous needs to be made with caution because the answer depends on the local stratigraphy, the seismic bandwidth, and the horizontal and vertical resolution of the seismic data. If two seismic reflection events, A and B, are separated by an appreciable seismic time interval (a few hundred milliseconds) yet are conformable to each other (that is, they parallel each other), then the uniform seismic time thickness between these two events represents a constant and fixed period of geologic time throughout the seismic image space spanned by reflectors A and B.

Industry largely abandoned 2D seismic profiling in the 1990s and now relies almost entirely on 3D seismic data acquisition. This chapter covers the basics of 3D seismic technology, but does not consider 2D seismic technology involving surfacepositioned equipment. In some reservoir applications, seismic data are acquired with downhole sources and receivers. If the receiver is stationed at various depth levels in a well and the source remains on the surface, the measurement is called vertical seismic profiling (VSP).
