Industrial seminar

In this talk, I will present an introduction to the method of full waveform inversion as typically used within the oil industry to produce large scale images of the earth’s subsurface.

I will begin by giving a brief review of the various technologies commonly used in seismic exploration and then move on to discuss some of the mathematical techniques used in seismic imaging. In particular, the equations of linear elastodynamics, and the associated inverse problem. I will also include a few insights into life in Schlumberger and Schlumberger Gould Research.

All welcome.
