3D Seismic Survey Design Book Review:

The first edition of this book was a slightly modified version of my dissertation (defended in February 2001). This second edition has been extended considerably. Many technological developments of the past 10 years have been included. Feedback from students attending my course on 3D survey design has helped clarify various not-so-clear discussions in the book. Another major difference is the inclusion of many new figures copied from the literature. Most of the existing figures have been redrawn to comply with the high standards used for figures in Geophysics, and all references are now compiled in a single list. Although the main text for this edition was ready by the end of 2010, some developments in the field of seismic data acquisition that occurred in 2011 and 2012 have still been included. The ideas and results discussed in this book should help one to achieve a better understanding of the structure of 3D acquisition geometries. With this understanding, geophysical requirements can be satisfied with an optimal choice of acquisition geometry and its parameters. Processing techniques can be adapted to honor and exploit the specific requirements of each geometry, especially orthogonal and areal geometries, leading to a more interpretable end product.

Seabed Seismic Techniques Book Review:

This book dwells on the fundamentals of seabed seismic in terms of data acquisition, QC and pre-processing. The focus is on receivers placed on the seabed— hydrophones to measure pressure in water (p-waves), geophones or accelerometers to measure vertical particle motion (p-waves) and horizontal particle motion (s-waves). The discussion is mainly on four components (4C) which more or less covers other multi-component seismic techniques. The first three chapters end with a set of exercises that will be of tremendous help within the educational environment. Chapter 1 defines seabed seismic and presents its advantages over conventional marine seismic methods. Experiences or implementation of the technique in some oil fields are given. In chapter 2, some basic signal properties are given, including the PS converted wave process and the derivation of the common conversion point (CCP) approximation formula. Basic data acquisition techniques are treated, including topics like sensor orientation, CCP binning and shear wave splitting. P-wave to S-wave velocity ratio (Gamma) is explained. The basics of QC and processing of seabed seismic data are treated in Chapter 3 where two model processing work-flows are showcased to explain the requisite data processing keys. The improvements in seabed seismic have not been without difficulties. Some of these challenges are treated in Chapter 4.

Marine Geophysics Book Review:

Exploration of the oceans using geophysical methods has had a profound effect on the way we view the structure of the Earth and its behaviour through geological time. Geophysics has also played a vital role in the search for petroleum and other natural resources lying beneath the seabed. This volume on marine geophysics has two objectives: to provide a comprehensive review of techniques and to examine what geophysical observations can tell us about the structure and tectonics of the oceans. Central to geophysical work at sea are the means of locating observations accurately and determining in detail the morphology of the sea floor. These topics are discussed early in the book. Considered next are the powerful seismic techniques for imaging the Earth's interior from shallow coastal areas to the deep-sea trenches. Further chapters focus on the gravity and magnetic fields over the oceans, heat flow, electrical and radiometric methods and measurements in offshore boreholes. In later parts of the book, wide-ranging geophysical observations are brought together in chapters on the development of the modern oceans, the structure of their deep basins and the nature of their aseismic and seismically active margins. This book will be of interest to marine scientists and advanced undergraduates and postgraduates following courses on, or undertaking research in, geophysics, marine geology, oceanography, physical sciences, remote sensing, marine surveying and offshore engineering. Contents: * Preview * Locating offshore observations * Seabed imaging by sonar and lidar * Seismic exploration at sea: a theoretical background * Seismic data acquisition at sea * The marine gravity field * The Earth's magnetic field at sea * Heat flow * Investigations of the sea floor using electrical methods * Seabed exploration using radiometric methods * Geophysical observations in offshore boreholes * Deep-sea geophysics and the changing geometry of the oceans * Studies of the oceanic lithosphere: the sedimentary cover * Studies of the oceanic lithosphere: the crustal basement and upper mantle * Investigations of divergent and transform continental margins * Studies of subduction zones

Static Corrections for Seismic Reflection Surveys Book Review:

This reference manual is designed to enable more geophysicists to appreciate static corrections, especially their limitations, their relationship with near-surface geology, and their impact on the quality of final interpreted sections. The book is addressed to those involved in data acquisition (datum static corrections), data processing (datum static and residual static corrections), and interpretation (the impact that unresolved static corrections, especially the long-wavelength or low-spatial-frequency component, have on the interpretation of the final section). Simple explanations of the underlying principles are included in an attempt to remove some of the mystique of static corrections. The principles involved are illustrated with simple models; these are supplemented with many data examples. This book details differences in approaches that must be considered among 2D, 3D, and crooked-line recordings as well as between P-wave and S-wave surveys. Static corrections are shown to be a simplified yet practical approach to modeling the effects of the near surface where a more correct wavefield or raypath-modeled method may not be efficiently undertaken. Chapters cover near-surface topography and geology; computation of datum static corrections; uphole surveys; refraction surveys; static corrections-limitations and effect on seismic data processes; residual static corrections; and interpretation aspects. An extensive index and a large list of references are included.

Petroleum Geology of the Black Sea Book Review:

The Black Sea remains one of the largest underexplored rift basins in the world. Future success is dependent on a better understanding of a number of geological uncertainties. These include reservoir and source rock presence and quality, and the timing of migration of hydrocarbons relative to trap formation. An appreciation of the geological history of the Black Sea basins and the surrounding orogens is therefore key. The timing of basin formation, uplift of the margins, and of facies distribution remain issues for robust debate. This Special Publication presents the results of 15 studies that relate to the tectono-stratigraphy and petroleum geology of the Black Sea. The methodologies of these studies encompass crustal structure, geodynamic evolution, stratigraphy and its regional correlation, petroleum systems, source to sink, hydrocarbon habitat and play concepts, and reviews of past exploration. They provide insight into the many ongoing controversies concerning Black Sea regional geology and provide a better understanding of the geological risks that must be considered for future hydrocarbon exploration.

Introduction to Petroleum Seismology second edition Book Review:

Introduction to Petroleum Seismology, second edition (SEG Investigations in Geophysics Series No. 12) provides the theoretical and practical foundation for tackling present and future challenges of petroleum seismology especially those related to seismic survey designs, seismic data acquisition, seismic and EM modeling, seismic imaging, microseismicity, and reservoir characterization and monitoring. All of the chapters from the first edition have been improved and/or expanded. In addition, twelve new chapters have been added. These new chapters expand topics which were only alluded to in the first edition: sparsity representation, sparsity and nonlinear optimization, near-simultaneous multiple-shooting acquisition and processing, nonuniform wavefield sampling, automated modeling, elastic-electromagnetic mathematical equivalences, and microseismicity in the context of hydraulic fracturing. Another major modification in this edition is that each chapter contains analytical problems as well as computational problems. These problems include MatLab codes, which may help readers improve their understanding of and intuition about these materials. The comprehensiveness of this book makes it a suitable text for undergraduate and graduate courses that target geophysicists and engineers as well as a guide and reference work for researchers and professionals in academia and in the petroleum industry.
