Title: Digital Seismic System in Petroleum Exploration: ABSTRACT

Author(s): R. C. Dunlap, Jr.

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Digital seismic instrumentation and techniques have been developed as components of a broad petroleum exploration system. The objective of this system is to lower the cost of oil-finding through greatly increased reliability of seismic data. Characteristics of the system include defining the exploration objective, identifying associated problems, optimizing field procedures, applying a series of pertinent data-enhancement techniques, and interpreting the results in terms of the specified objective. Digital seismic instrumentation and techniques permit the explorationist to apply the system on a more scientific and less empirical basis.
