SEG, AAPG, and in conjunction with SEPM are hosting the second annual International Meeting for Applied Geoscience and Energy (IMAGE), 28 August–2 September in Houston, Texas at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
IMAGE ’22 has been designed and built by industry professionals as the place for geoscientists, energy professionals, and thought leaders to meet and shape the future of applied geosciences and energy. It will provide an influential platform for sharing best practices, discovering solutions, and developing new perspectives and strategies to challenge and plan for what’s ahead.
World-class offshore and onshore energy resources await discovery and development across Africa. With the recent pandemic and climate change, now is the time to pool our experience and look forward to planning strategic change.
EAGE E-Lecture: Virtual Seismology: monitoring the subsurface with virtual sources and recivers by Kees Wapenaar
This E-Lecture introduces virtual seismology: monitoring the subsurface with virtual sources and receivers, which is a new methodology to create virtual sources and virtual receivers in the subsurface from reflection measurements at the earth’s surface. Unlike in seismic interferometry, no physical instrument (receiver or source) is needed at the position of the virtual source or receiver. Moreover, no detailed knowledge of the subsurface parameters and structures is required: a smooth velocity model suffices. Yet, the responses to the virtual sources, observed by the virtual receivers, fully account for multiple scattering. This method is not only useful for reflection imaging but is has also large potential for monitoring induced seismicity, characterizing the source properties and forecasting the response to potential future induced earthquakes. This will be demonstrated with numerical models and preliminary real-data results.
