Title: Overview of Exploration Geophysics--Recent Breakthroughs and Challenging New Problems

Author(s): B. S. Flowers (2)


Changes in geophysical technology have been rapid and dramatic in recent years so that work done only a year or two ago is referred to as the "old" geophysics. Everyone wants the "new" geophysics. As might be expected, each new method gives rise to additional problems, often unforeseen, which limit the use of the method and thus require a new round of improvements. Three topics demonstrate this: (1) problems involving velocity-structure, (2) elimination of noises after stacking, and (3) the direct detection of hydrocarbons.
