Seismic Reflection Processing With Special Reference to Anisotropy

Authors


Abstract

Seismic reflection data are used extensively in petroleum exploration and development to provide subsurface images and estimates of rock and fluid properties. Data acquisition, processing, and interpretation methodologies have progressed over the past 30 years to allow high-resolution three-dimensional imaging, pore fluid and lithology prediction, and, in certain situations, time-lapse monitoring of reservoir production. Exploration seismology experiences and applications are also finding their way into whole-Earth imaging problems (and vice versa) with great success.

Into this long and successful history, S. K. Upadhyay's book, Seismic Reflection Processing With Special Reference to Anisotropy, is introduced.
