Syntactic Pattern Recognition for Seismic Oil Exploration

DESCRIPCIÓN DEL TEXTO The use of pattern recognition has become more and more important in seismic oil exploration. Interpreting a large volume of seismic data is a challenging problem. Seismic reflection data in the one-shot seismogram and stacked seismogram may contain some structural information from the response of the subsurface. Syntactic/structural pattern recognition techniques can […]

Exploration of Gas Hydrates: Geophysical Techniques

DESCRIPCIÓN DEL TEXTO Gas hydrates are ice-like crystalline substances that form a rigid cage of water molecules and entrap hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon gas by hydrogen bonding. Natural gas hydrate is primarily composed of water and methane. These are solid, crystalline, ice-like substances found in permafrost areas and deepwater basins around the world. They naturally occur […]

Applied Geophysics in Periglacial Environments

DESCRIPCIÓN DEL TEXTO Many research problems in cryospheric science, such as global warming-induced permafrost degradation, require information about the subsurface, which can be imaged using geophysical methods. This book is a practical guide to the application of geophysical techniques in mountainous and polar terrain, where the harsh environment and nature of the subsurface pose particular […]

Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

This second edition of the widely acclaimed Geophysical Fluid Dynamics by Joseph Pedlosky offers the reader a high-level, unified treatment of the theory of the dynamics of large-scale motions of the oceans and atmosphere. Revised and updated, it includes expanded discussions of * the fundamentals of geostrophic turbulence * the theory of wave-mean flow interaction * thermocline theory * finite amplitude barocline instability. From the reviews: “The author has done a masterful job in presenting the theory with the necessary mathematical foundation, while keeping the physical aspects in clear view…it is an outstanding introduction to a complex and important subject.” GEOPHYSICS

Exploration Geophysics

DESCRIPCIÓN DEL TEXTO Many text books have been written on the subject “Exploration Geophysics“. The majority of these texts focus on the theory and the mathematical treatment of the subject matter but lack treatment of practical aspects of geophysical exploration. This text is written in simple English to explain the physical meaning of jargon, or […]
