Basic Geophysics (BGP) Short Courses
Blended, Virtual Courses delivered through PetroAcademy®
This course is designed to familiarize anyone using seismic data with the terms, nature of the data, and how it is used. The key goals of the course are to explain the large and confusing amount of jargon that is used by the geophysical community and give an understanding of what is involved in collecting, processing, and interpreting seismic data. The course is supplemented by numerous case studies, examples, and readings that concretely illustrate and demonstrate the principles in the course material. These are updated frequently to keep up with the rapidly developing technology in this field. Key concepts are reinforced using exercises.
The short courses are 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.
Before taking any of the other basic geophysics short courses, it is strongly recommended that you take the first three short courses:
- Principles of Geophysics
- Seismic Acquisition, Processing and Migration
- Seismic Mapping in order to understand the fundamental concepts
