In seismic prospecting, we deal with a medium, which contains series of layers within the Earth's surface having different velocities.
The text focuses on edge and vertex diffraction phenomena, which are of significant importance in seismic prospecting. In this book, theoretical derivations are followed by their numerical implementation and application to real exploration problems.
The trading house said it and Talisman will explore other promising prospects identified through seismic prospecting in their North Sea exploration area.
Geophysical researches, including seismic prospecting (Schwarz, 1990;Johnston and Carpenter, 1998), gravimetry (Szczerbowski, 2001), geoelectric (Kaczor, 2003) and electromagnetic methods are used to monitor the process of deformation in rock mass, as well as to indicate the zones which might be under threat of deformation.
Acoustic emission was carried out for three piers: two damaged and one intact, followed by seismic prospecting. In order to quantify the internal damage and cracking condition of the pier, three boreholes in a lateral direction and one borehole in a diagonal direction were made only in P3.
He said the estimates were based on "seismic prospecting and geologic studies".
Projects: examples from List 2: a) Develop an interactive system for visualizing and editing multi-channel seismic prospecting data in X Windows; b) Develop an interactive software package complex for special analysis and seismic prospecting data filtering; c) Wave field in non-uniform medium modeling.
