The course is designed for practicing geoscientists and geoscience students who desire a better understanding of the principles and limitations of both current and emerging technologies involved in subsurface parameter estimation and imaging. The material is designed to help readers better understand how contemporary velocity estimation methods work, and what approximations are involved in obtaining computationally tractable solutions. The evolution of the industry’s approaches to building earth models with ray tomography and full waveform inversion is covered, as are some of the emerging possibilities for replacing imaging techniques with direct subsurface parameter inversion methods. The approach will be mostly non-mathematical, concentrating on an intuitive understanding of the principles, demonstrating them via case histories.
The Image and Sound Processing Lab (ISPL) of the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) of the Politecnico di Milano has more than twenty years of experience on applying advanced signal processing and machine learning techniques to multidimensional data.
In the last five years, ISPL has extended the field of application of its expertise to geophysical data. This has been possible due to the deep knowledge on seismic data processing that is present at DEIB thanks to Prof. Fabio Rocca and by Prof. Giuseppe Drufuca.
The Italian EAGE-SEG Section interviewed Aldo Vesnaver and Eleonora Denich, INOGS geophysical researchers, about the current applications and future perspectives on Seismic Inversion techniques, focusing on Machine Learning and Artificial intelligence.
The Italian EAGE-SEG Sectioninterviewed Massimo Fervari about the current applications and future perspectives onSeismic Inversion techniques, a technical topic with enormous implicationson the E&P activities of Energy Companies.Seismic Inversion has several applications and Massimo’s brain is certainly among the most passionate ones to pick.
As in the 2019, when a group of UNIPG students won the participation to the SEG meeting in San Antonio (Texas), also this year another team of UNIPG students successfully accomplished the collaborative project SEG EVOLVE edition 2020, working remotely in collaboration with Engineering Students from the University of Leoben, Austria.
Thanks to an excellent performance during the final EVOLVE presentation in June, they got selected to join the International Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Annual Meeting to present their work.
