'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
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.
