This course covers the theory, methods, applications, and practice of various borehole (in situ) geophysical techniques.
Prerequisites (Knowledge/Experience/Education Required)
The course is recommended for geophysicists with an undergraduate background who are involved with seismic acquisition, processing or interpretation.
This course covers the theory, methods, applications, and practice of various borehole (in situ) geophysical techniques, including: well logging, vertical seismic profiling (VSP), distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), crosswell, and microseismic methods. Acquisition design and instruments are reviewed as are processing techniques. Examples are drawn from conventional and unconventional petroleum cases as well as underground storage and aquifers. In addition, we integrate these measurements, via geostatistics and machine learning, with surface seismic information to provide an extended subsurface picture. The learning opportunities are augmented with a short field survey, computer processing, and hands-on exercises.
