RokDoc Seismic Data Conditioning & AVO Inversion - 3 Day Course - Training Course by Ikon Science

RokDoc Seismic Data Conditioning & AVO Inversion - 3 Day Course

Available as a public course
Available as a private in-house course

Attendees learn to operate the software by applying it to practical examples; this is supplemented by presentations of the underlying principles and by discussion of the results obtained, with emphasis on QC methods.

The emphasis is on simultaneous inversion of multiple angle stacks to give acoustic and shear impedance, but coloured inversion of AVO intercept – gradient combinations is also included. 

The course is intended for new and intermediate users of RokDoc Seismic Data Conditioning and Inversion.

Full Course Outline

Overview of Inversion

  • Why invert data?
  • Inversion algorithms
  • Limitations and assumptions
  • Pre-inversion seismic data conditioning
  • Workflow overview including parameter testing
  • QC of inversion results
Well-ties and Wavelets

  • Quantitative ties: the Roy White method
  • Estimating accuracy and goodness of fit
  • Wavelet consistency across a dataset
Well-tie example

  • Backus averaging
