Rock Physics and Computational Geophysics
Dr José Carcione (OGS)
CPD Points: 10
This course presents the fundamentals of physics and numerical simulation of wave propagation in anisotropic, inelastic and porous media, including the analogy between acoustic waves (in the general sense) and electromagnetic (EM) waves. The emphasis is on geophysical applications for hydrocarbon exploration but will also include the fields of earthquake seismology, rock physics and material science. Moreover, the course illustrates the use of seismic and EM modelling, with an account of the numerical algorithms for computing the synthetic seismograms and radargrams, including applications in the field of geophysical prospecting, seismology and rock physics, such as evaluation of methane hydrate content, upscaling techniques, detection of overpressure, Antarctic and permafrost exploration, exploration of the Earths deep crust and time-lapse for monitoring of CO2 injection.
The course is useful for geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, mathematicians and physicists. The emphasis is on geophysical applications for hydrocarbon exploration but researchers in the fields of earthquake seismology, rock acoustics and material science - including many branches of acoustics of fluids and solids (acoustics of materials, non-destructive testing, etc.) - may also find this course useful.
