The phased array principle is also used in acoustics, and phased arrays of acoustic transducers are used in medical ultrasound imaging scanners (phased array ultrasonics), oil and gas prospecting (reflection seismology), and military sonar systems.
Bakly added that EGas would complete the reflection seismology's project in the west of the Mediterranean Sea, besides working on a marketing campaign to have an international outbidding in the western area, according to the Ministry of Petroleum's press release.
The contributions that make up the text are focused on wavelet methods for shape perception in electro-sensing, time-domain multiscale shape identification in electro-sensing, daylight imaging for virtual reflection seismology, direct scattering by a sound hard small body, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
The advent of reflection seismology in oil exploration increased the rate of new discoveries from one for every 10 drill holes, to seven for every 10 drill holes, added Lassonde, but there has been no such advancement in mining exploration.
Reflection Seismology: Theory, Data Processing and Interpretation
Ancient Ebro River basin mapped: A Spanish research team has used 3D reflection seismology to map the geomorphological features of the Ebro River basin as it was between five and six million years ago, during which time the Straits of Gibraltar closed and the sea level in the Mediterranean basin fell by about 1,300 metres.
Retired to consultancy from a career in the petroleum business, interpreter Herron explains theoretical and practical aspects of interpreting seismic signals to readers who are familiar with the basic concepts and principles of geology and reflection seismology. Much of the material is compiled from notes for courses in seismic interpretation he has given over the years.
