Geological Interpretation of Reflection Seismic Data

Geological Interpretation of Reflection Seismic Data

Geological Interpretation of Reflection Seismic Data

This my graduation research title "thesis" in partial fulfilment of requirements for B.Sc in Geology. The aim of this research is to help geophysicists and geologists new to the technique to interpret data while avoiding common pitfalls. The research providing simple guide for geologists to interpret seismic data in geological frame without mathematical or physical concept that applied in seismic interpretation. The geology department members accepted this research.


This research consists of all these aspects in a brief. Starting from the introduction to the seismic methods in Chapter (1).  In Chapter  (2) We tried to give a brief introduction  about  the  basics  of  the  different  types  of  waves, and fundamental of seismic data and it's definition like multiples, processing, etc. The next Chapter (3) deals with the steps of geological interpretation to seismic data. Chapter (4) is about the structure interpretation especially the common traps and reservoirs, where we described pitfalls in structure interpretation. In Chapter (5) we’re showing case study of the interpretation technique from a Ph.D dissertation explained basic data and aid data used to complete the interpretation.
