GEOS5380 - Seismic Interpretation

GEOS 5380 Seismic Interpretation (3 semester credit hours) Interpretation of seismic reflection profiles used together with surface maps and well data to characterize the subsurface geometry of sedimentary rocks and their relation to faults. The course focus is on the integration of data sets and development of conceptual models of stratal accumulation during displacement on faults. Work is performed in a digital environment (Computer Aided Design) with special emphasis on developing sound geologic interpretations and not the manipulation of standard seismic processing software packages. Face-to-face meetings, discussions, and presentations will be combined with directed assignments using online resources and interaction. (3-0) T
