Transcript

  • 1. Overview ta3520 Introduction to seismics <ul><li>Fourier Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Basic principles of the Seismic Method </li></ul><ul><li>Interpretation of Raw Seismic Records </li></ul><ul><li>Seismic Instrumentation </li></ul><ul><li>Processing of Seismic Reflection Data </li></ul><ul><li>Vertical Seismic Profiles </li></ul><ul><li>Practical: </li></ul><ul><li>Processing practical (with MATLAB) </li></ul>
  • 2. Signal and Noise Signal: desired Noise: not desired So for reflection seismology: - Primary reflections are signal - Everything else is noise!
  • 3. Signal and Noise (2) Direct wave: noise Refraction: noise Reflection: (desired) signal
  • 4. Signal and Noise (3) Direct wave: noise Refraction: noise Reflection: signal Multiply reflected : noise
  • 5. Signal and Noise for P-wave survey <ul><li>Noise: </li></ul><ul><li>direct wave through first layer </li></ul><ul><li>direct air wave </li></ul><ul><li>direct surface wave </li></ul><ul><li>S-wave </li></ul><ul><li>Multiply reflected wave </li></ul><ul><li>Refraction / Head wave </li></ul><ul><li>Desired signal: </li></ul><ul><li>primary reflected P-waves </li></ul>
  • 6. Signal and Noise for P-wave survey Goal of Processing: Remove effects of All-but-Primary-Reflection Energy Signal Noise = Primary P-wave Reflected Energy All but Primary Reflection Energy
  • 7. Processing of Signal (Primary-reflected energy) Goal of processing: Focus energy to where it comes from
  • 8. Understanding signal and noise: wave theory Basic physics underlying signal is captured by wave equation Ray theory: approximation of wave equation (“high-frequency”) Resonances: modes expansion of wave equation S-waves, P-waves: elastic form of wave equation
  • 9. The seismic record
  • 10. Body waves: Surface waves:
  • 11. A seismic shot record on land Linear event: Direct/refraction Linear event: Slower, Direct Slightly hyperbolic event: Reflection Linear event: Very slow, Direct
  • 12. A seismic shot record on land Linear event: Direct/refraction Linear event: Slower, Direct Slightly hyperbolic event: Reflection Linear event: Very slow, Direct
  • 13. Interpretation of seismic land record thickness 200 m source detector offset air wave surface wave (velocity 1850 m/s) refraction velocity 340 m/s velocity 3500 m/s (P waves) velocity 4800 m/s
  • 14. (Old: Interpretation of seismic land record)
  • 15. Picture made within PowerPoint thickness 200 m source detector offset air wave surface wave (velocity 1850 m/s) refraction velocity 340 m/s velocity 3500 m/s (P waves) velocity 4800 m/s

  • 17. Modelling of seismic land record Observed data Modelled data (ray theory approx.) refraction direct P-wave surface wave reflection reflection direct air wave
  • 18. Wassenaar-beach data: Wednesday
  • 19. Wassenaar-beach data: Wednesday
  • 20. Wassenaar-beach data: array data (Thursday)
  • 21. A seismic shot record at Wassenaar beach Linear event: Direct/refraction Linear event: Slower, Direct Many slightly hyperbolic events: Reflections ! Linear event: Slow, Direct
