Seismic reflection - II

Flow overview

These are the main steps in processing The order in which they are applied is variable

The seismic wave is sensitive to the sequence of impedance contrasts The reflectivity series (R)

We input a source wavelet (W) which is reflected at each impedance contrast The seismogram recorded at the surface (S) is the convolution of the two S=W*R

Deconvolution

undoing the convolution to get back to the reflectivity series what we want

Spiking or whitening deconvolution Reduces the source wavelet to a spike. The filter that best achieves this is called a Wiener filter

Our seismogram S = R*W (reflectivity*source)

Time-variant deconvolution D changes with time to account for the different frequency content of energy that has traveled greater distances Predictive deconvolution The arrival times of primary reflections are used to predict the arrival times of multiples which are then removed

Source-pulse deconvolution

Examples Original section Deconvolution: Ringing removed

Applied Geophysics Seismic reflection II

If we know the source pulse Then cross-correlating it with the recorded waveform gets us back (closer) to the reflectivity function

If we dont know the source pulse Then autocorrelation of the waveform gives us something similar to the input plus multiples. Cross-correlating the autocorrelation with the waveform then provides a better approximation to the reflectivity function.

Multiples

Due to multiple bounce paths in the section Looks like repeated structure These are also removed with deconvolution easily identified with an autocorrelation removed using cross-correlation of the autocorrelation with the waveform

Velocity analysis

Determination of seismic velocity is key to seismic methods Velocity is needed to convert the time-sections into depth-sections i.e. geological cross-sections

Unfortunately reflection surveys are not very sensitive to velocity Often complimentary refraction surveys are conducted to provide better estimates of velocity

The reflection traveltime equation predicts a hyperbolic shape to reflections in a CMP gather. The hyperbolae become fatter/flatter with increasing velocity reflection hyperbolae become fatter with depth (i.e. velocity)

Tx2 = T02 +

x2 V1

We want to subtract the NMO correction from the common depth point gather 2

TNMO

x 2T0V12

Stacking velocity

In order to stack the waveforms we need to know the velocity. We find the velocity by trial and error:

TNMO =

x2 2T0V12

For each velocity we calculate the hyperbolae and stack the waveforms The correct velocity will stack the reflections on top of one another So, we choose the velocity which produces the most power in the stack

Stacking velocity

Multiple layer case A stack of multiple horizontal layers is a more realistic approximation to the Earth Can trace rays through the stack using Snells Law (the ray parameter) For near-normal incidence the moveout continues to be a hyperbolae The shape of the hyperbolae is related to the time-weighted rms velocity above the reflector Velocity semblance spectrum Pick stacking velocities

1 = 6.0 km/s then 0.052 sec correct value 1 = 5.5 km/s then 0.062 sec 1 = 6.5 km/s then 0.044 sec

Frequency filtering

Hi-pass: to remove ground roll Low-pass: to remove high frequency jitter/noise Notch filter: to remove single frequency

Resolution of structure

Consider a vertical step in an interface To be detectable the step must cause an delay of to a wavelength This means the step (h) must be 1/8 to the wavelength (two way traveltime) Example: 20 Hz, = 4.8 km/s then = 240 m Therefore need an offset greater than 30 m Shorter wavelength signal (higher frequencies) have better resolution. What is the problem with very high frequency sources?

Resolution of structure

When you have been mapping faults in the field what were the vertical offsets?

Applied Geophysics Seismic reflection II

Fresnel Zone

Tells us about the horizontal resolution on the surface of a reflector First Fresnel Zone The area of a reflector that returns energy to the receiver within half a cycle of the first reflection The width of the first Fresnel zone, w:

w 2 d + = d + 4 2

w2 = 2d +

If an interface is smaller than the first Fresnel zone it appears as an point diffractor, if it is larger it appears as an interface Example: 30 Hz signal, 2 km depth where = 3 km/s then = 0.1 km and the width of the first Fresnel zone is 0.63 km
