DHIs and AVO - DHI - Virtual, Blended Short Course

This short course is a blend of self-paced online modules, virtual instructor-led lectures, problem assignments, virtual instructor-led problem debriefs with real-world application examples and knowledge sharing.

Over two days, this course includes approximately 2 hours of virtual, instructor-led training, plus 4 hours of e-Learning.

This PetroAcademy short course is designed to familiarize anyone using seismic data with the basics of what AVO and DHIs are and how they are used in an interpretation. One of the key goals is to explain the large and confusing amount of jargon that is used by the geophysical community when they use seismic data.
