It can be very difficult to find courses that cover specific structural regimes, and which give you the interpretive tools you need to be able to develop a coherent model. For example, if you’re working in a complex fold and thrust belt, the knowledge you have of seismic interpretation of structures may be inadequate.
John Shaw is offering a short course that provides an in-depth look seismic interpretation in fold and thrust belts, and it will take place August 15-18 at Harvard. seismic reflection data and the development of balanced cross sections for trap delineation and reservoir characterization in fold-and-thrust belts. The course will enable participants to
- Recognize common types of structures in fold-and-thrust belts based on their expressions in seismic reflection data.
- Rigorously apply fault-related folding concepts to interpret these structures in seismic reflection data, characterizing fault and fold geometries and fault displacements.Evaluate structural interpretations based on fault and fold relationships.
- Identify petroleum traps and their major structural risk elements.
