Title: Utilization of Geologic Data in Planning Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Program: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Burl A. Tuller

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The pertinent aspects of Previous HitseismicNext Hit program planning are developed within the framework of the following three-phase outline.

I. Geologic Pre-Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Prospect Analysis.
II. Geophysical Pre-Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Prospect Analysis.
III. Management--Geological--Geophysical Pre-Previous HitSeismicNext Hit--Prospect Analysis.

Phase I considers the available data which the geologist must assemble into a logical geological picture before a possible exploration prospect is feasible. The importance of these geologic data to proper Previous HitseismicNext Hit planning is stressed.

Phase II discusses the basic problems which the geophysicist must consider in developing realistic estimates for proper utilization of the Previous HitseismicNext Hit tool. One should consider the type of Previous HitseismicNext Hit processing, expected resolution, type of equipment, and time and cost estimates.

Phase III considers the interrelated functions of geology, geophysics, and management in the final phase of Previous HitseismicNext Hit program planning. For example, one must consider the probable benefit of the Previous HitseismicNext Hit tool with regard to its fulfillment of the geologic objectives. Other items which must be clarified are the type of Previous HitseismicTop control patterns as well as the cost and time factors involved in processing the prospect.
