Title: Introduction to Geological Computing: ABSTRACT

Author(s): F. J. Wagner

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Methods, problems, and costs of exploration-data recording, computing, and display were discussed. Computer systems permit explorationists to retrieve data quickly and to apply statistical techniques for relating critical variables to hydrocarbon occurrence. Exploration data processing has two approaches: the project approach which applies computing techniques only to specific problems; and the systems approach in which all problems with the same or related data are considered within a data-retrieval system.
