Basic Geophysics - BGP - Virtual, Blended Course
This workshop will be delivered virtually through PetroAcademy. Each PetroAcademy offering integrates multiple learning activities, such as self-paced e-Learning, virtual instructor-led sessions, discussion forums, group exercises, case studies, quizzes, field trips, and experiential activities. In addition to the scheduled sessions, this course is available on-demand, wherein the course work is self-paced and instructor-led sessions are available any time as videos. Activities include 2 hours of instructor-led, virtual training sessions, plus approximately 47 hours of self-paced work. This course is designed to familiarize anyone using seismic data with the nature of the data and what they specifically represent. One of the key goals of the course is to explain the confusing amount of jargon that is used by the geophysical community when they use seismic data. The course is supplemented by a large number of case histories that concretely illustrate the principles in the course material. These are updated with every course presentation to keep up with the rapidly developing technology in this field.
