Seismic Data Acquisition Is Mapping The Ocean Floors For Future Use
Over the years seismic data acquisition has become more important then ever for many companies and industries around the globe.
Introduction to Seismic Data Acquisition and Processing Steps
It is vital for many companies to have an accurate database of the most current information on underwater geography.
For those industries that use this type of information, the accuracy and the quality of this seismic data must be at very high levels.
That is why it is so important to hire a company that not only has a fleet of vessels capable of making the runs necessary to compile such information, but also a company with experience to do the job correctly.
The company must also have the latest in technology to perform the procedures to collect and process the seismic data so that it can be used for practical applications.
The Seismic Data Acquisition information that is collected and gathered will help the geoscientists to make accurate maps of the underworld of any water areas.
Armed with this information the company involved can then predict the value of the area and make it more profitable for use in any capacity.
This not only provides the information needed to determine if there is profit in what lies beneath the water but also helps to protect the environment.
Much of the information that is collected provides valuable data for shipping lanes and navigation routes.
This helps to keep waterways safe and secure for everyone.
Much of the Seismic Data Acquisition that takes place these days is geared to the gas and oil industry.
In the on-going challenge to discover new fuel supplies to keep pace with world demand, this research is crucial for the industry.
With this scientific approach to finding new potential sources of oil and gas on the water-covered floors of oceans, lakes and other water areas, the question continues to find new discoveries.
This is helping to provide information to the industry where they can find new supplies of fuel and at the same time keep the environment safe and secure from harm.
Companies that are engaged in this type of work are committed to safety and the protection of the water and the land beneath the water.
During the coming years and into the future this important work will continue.
The seismic survey, mapping and discovery of potential sites for under-water development will take on a more important role.
After all the water is the last frontier and we are just learning about the vast resources of the ocean floor and the potential it has for world use.

Documenting Visual Quality Controls on the Evaluation of Petroleum Reservoir-Rocks Through Ontology
By Felipe Ingletto Victoreti The understanding of these controls is essential for the construction of models for the systematic characterization and prediction of the quality (porosity, permeability) of petroleum reservoirs during their exploration and production. The description and documentation of key petrographic features is an important tool for the evaluation of reservoir quality that try to minimize the uncertainty associated to visual recognition of the features.

Tackling Complex Reservoirs Through Systematic Petrographic Characterization
By Luiz Fernando De Ros Despite the spectacular advances in seismic and log acquisition and interpretation, and in 3D and 4D modeling, the risks involved in the exploration of new, deeper, depositional, tectonic or diagenetically-complex prospects remain large. This, essentially because these sophisticated methods simply lack information on an essential part of petroleum systems: the reservoir. Most new prospects represent clastic or carbonate rocks with strong diagenesis. [READ FULL ARTICLE]
Data Acquisition Systems: Analog to Digital
By Jamie Doyle Data acquisition and data acquisition systems (known as DAS) take analog waveforms, collected by specific sensors that generate electrical signals into digital data for processing. Most of the computers that we think about today are strictly digital but the first computers in last century were analog, so most of us are unfamiliar with taking analog waveforms in any form. (Think about the change in taking one's temperature - from the mercury filled glass stick that you stuck under your tongue to the digital ear probe; from analog measurement to a digital method.)
