Advanced Seismic Data Processing: Concepts and Examples - RILS

This is a Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS) training. The remote classroom delivery is a modality that takes advantage of the instructor led training content, while allowing the same content to be delivered remotely. All training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance.

The Advanced Seismic Data Processing: Fundamentals and Applications - RILS course will be delivered over 8 daily sessions of 3 hours each. 

Eight modules are presented over eight 3-hour days (remotely delivered course). Each module includes two 15 minute breaks & concludes with class exercises. The entire course was originally planned to be presented over three 8-hour days in classroom format.

The course covers a range of advanced data analysis topics including novel signal processing techniques, pre-stack depth migration, reservoir characterization, time lapse analysis and the road ahead.

The free on-line books by Jon F. Claerbout, material from SEG Wiki and papers published in Geophysics, The Leading Edge and SEG Expanded Abstracts are used to provide technical background for the course topics.

Each module is illustrated with examples, a list of publications and exercises.
