"The effect of colour blindness on seismic interpretation"

Colour perception is an intrinsic part of visual cognition and affects how we understand the images that we see. Colour is now a fundamental part of how we display seismic reflectivity and attribute data, but not everyone sees colour in the same way. Colour deficiencies (or colour blindness) alters our perception of an image, and this study investigates whether colour deficiency also alters the interpretation of geological features in seismic data.

"Closing the seismic resolution gap of fractures through seismic and image-log analysis, a North Sea case study"

The “seismic resolution gap” has been an area of ambiguity ever since the results of 3D seismic interpretation have been used as inputs for modeling purposes because many important structural events such as fractures are at or below seismic resolution, which can impinge reservoir properties such as porosity and permeability. Having the means to accurately...
