[The quest to understand the internal structure of the Earth goes back to ancient times, because understanding how the world we live in works is part of human nature.]
[Geophysicists or Earth scientists working in the field of seismology are concerned with the detection of seismic waves (e.g., sound waves) using a seismometer. These waves originate from a single source and propagate away as energy disturbances in the form of waves through the surrounding...
[Seismic data acquisition is performed to answer a specific scientific problem (e.g., the most favourable place to inject and store CO2, the location of hydrocarbon reservoirs), whether this is to reduce uncertainty and increase knowledge for a particular area of interest in the subsurface or to...
[Seismic processing is a specialist discipline that sits within the broader label of geophysics. The simple aim of seismic processing is to take the raw recorded seismic data and to turn it into an interpretable image to show details about the subsurface geology.]
[Wavelets play a critical role in understanding how to relate seismic reflections to geology in the subsurface.]
[This chapter focuses on defining AVO and exploring the subsurface conditions and data required to observe the phenomenon. We look at how AVO can be used to identify variations in rock properties along with the presence of different fluids in the subsurface.]
[Seismic reflection data play a central role in the subsurface modelling and characterization steps of the geo-modelling workflow, as they provide exhaustive spatial information about the subsurface geology. The recorded seismic amplitudes are indirect measurements of the subsurface rock and...
[The goal of a geoscientist is to create models of the subsurface rock properties to be used in fluid flow simulation and reserves calculation.]
[In this chapter we introduce our current perspective about the role of seismic data for the challenges related to the energy transity towards carbon neutrality.]
