Field Experiment of a Multi-azimuth Inverse VSP for Investigating Velocity Anisotropy

In order to estimate the anisotropy of the medium, we deployed a series of 120-sources in a borehole, and simultaneously recorded 3-component seismic data at 5 locations on the surface. We have tried to estimate the directional velocities by comparing the first arrivals at different receivers. For that purpose, the receiver statics must be corrected prior to pick the first arrivals. However, in an IVSP with a limited number of receiver points, it may not possible to estimate a reliable receiver statics, therefore, instead of using individual first arrival times, we tried to estimate the move-out velocity at each records. From this analysis, we have found that there exists a measurable amount of difference in directional velocities, and confirmed that the velocity anisotropy agrees with the results of the previous studies conducted in this area.

Three-dimensional electromagnetic modeling algorithm in homogeneous half-space was developed using the extended Born approximation to an electric field integral equation. To examine the performance of the extended Born approximation algorithm, the results were compared with those of the full integral equation results. For a crosshole source-receiver configuration, the agreement between the integral equation and the extended Born approximation was remarkable when the source frequency is lower than 20 kHz and conductivity contrast lower than 1:10. Beyond this conductivity contrast, the simulated results by the extended Born approximation exhibit a difference with respect to those by the integral equation. Therefore, the limit of accuracy lies below contrast of 1:10 in the extended Born approximation. Since for the source frequency range from 20 kHz to 100 kHz, however, the difference is relatively small, the extended Born approximation could be used for a reasonable 3-D EM modeling algorithm.
3-Dimensional Sequence Interpretation of Seismic Attributes in the Structurally Complex Area

The study was performed as a part of 3-D exploration project of the South Con Son basin, where Korea National Oil Co. (KNOC) and SHELL Company are performing joint operation. In the structurally complex area, seismic facies or lap-out patterns, which are usually the tools for the conventional seismic stratigraphy developed by Exxon Group (Vail et at., 1977), are not easily identifiable. Therefore, stratigraphic informations are mainly extracted from seismic attribute maps of each sequence or systems tracts, and isopach maps in correlation with the stratigraphic information from the wells. The attribute maps of the sequence or systems tract boundaries and isopach map describe the variations of paleodepositional environments. The shape of the attribute maps of the boundaries is a reasonable description of the shape of the paleodepositional surface. With other maps such as isopach and structural maps, the variations of the parasequences in the systems tracts can be projected using the surface attribute maps. The reflection intensity attribute at each sequence or system tract boundary can be related to lithology, facies or porosity distributions. The azimuth attribute of source rock sequence can be used to identify the hydrocarbon migration patterns into the prospects. The overall risks of reservoir rocks, cap rocks, structure and hydrocarbon migrations were computed using the results of the study.
Image Change Tracking System
Park Young-Hwan ;
Geophysics and Geophysical Exploration, volume 2, issue 3, 1999, Pages 154~158
This paper introduces a partial edge detection technique, that improves the processing time of an automatic change tracking system for multi-temporal images. In the conventional change tracking systems for multi-temporal images, the edge detection is performed over the whole image. In the proposed method, however, the necessary portions for the edge detection is selected first and the edge detection is performed over the selected parts only. As a consequence, the improvement in the processing time could be achieved. The proposed change tracking system is expected to be utilized as a very efficient tool to configure changes in large data set such as remotely sensed satellite imagery or geophysical time laps images.
