Editorial Reviews

Review

'I found this book very easy to read. Complex concepts are clearly explained ... for a comprehensive guide to getting the most out of seismic data it has few competitors.' Geological Magazine

"This reasonably priced book is excellent for petroleum geoscientists wishing to learn 3-D seismic technology, a key tool for mapping subsurface reservoir quality and hydrocarbon distribution. Mathematics are minimal but sufficient. I strongly recommend it to all librarians, academics, students and professionals." AAPG Bulletin B.K. Sahu, Indian Institute of Technology

"...easy to read, concise, and well organized, written in a simple language and perfectly illustrated with color plates." Pure and Applied Geophysics

Book Description

This book aims to help geophysicists and geologists new to the technique to interpret 3-D seismic data while avoiding common pitfalls. Topics covered include basic structural interpretation and map-making; the use of 3-D visualisation methods; interpretation of seismic amplitudes; the generation and use of AVO and acoustic impedance datasets; and time-lapse seismic mapping. Written by professional geophysicists with many years experience in the oil industry, the book will be indispensable for graduate students, researchers, and new entrants into the petroleum industry.

I bought this book, amongst others, in order to update myself on the essentials of 3-D interpretation whilst learning to use a 3D software package. I chose it as a reference text, before returning to work as a Geophysicist after a seven year break. It was just what I needed to refresh my memory! The book is easy to read, concise and well organized. It also has plenty of current and essential references on each topic which saved me a lot of research time.

It informative if you are unfamiliar with many techniques in exploration seismology. I would say if your an Engineer, Geologist or just have an interest in the subject then this book would be great. However if you are familiar with information within exploration seismology and the petroleum industry then I would seek another book as a reference. Perhaps something from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

I bought this book because a colleague of mine recommended it and I love the content but the BOOK IS IN BLACK AND WHITE which makes understanding the pictures quite difficult. I asked to see my colleague's book and his is a color paperback. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY THE COLOR VERSION. You cannot see the yellow circles and pointers at all on back and white pictures.
