Diffraction imaging, concepts and applications

 

Dr. Moser's tutorial will present diffraction imaging as it developed from the early works in the 1970s up to the present state of the art. Topics that will be covered include: historical overview, resolution and super-resolution, illumination, diffractions and standard processing, detection, separation, inversion, imaging in time domain, imaging in depth domain, focusing, fracture detection, diffraction imaging versus image processing, diffraction imaging by specularity suppression. Case studies will be presented covering examples from seismic exploration and other areas of geoscientific interest.

After finishing his PhD he continued working with CGG and moved to Aberdeen to lead the Research & Technology Team in the BP Dedicated Processing Centre. Ehsan joined Ikon Science in May 2012, as a Senior Research Geoscientist, responsible for the incorporation of latest techniques and developments in the area of reservoir characterisation and seismic data conditioning into the Ikon Science's RokDoc platform. Ehsan is also responsible for Academic Affairs in Ikon Science. During his CWP visit in 2013, he worked with Prof. Dave Hale in the area of seismic image processing.

Tariq Alkhalifah

Tariq Alkhalifah

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

Tariq Alkhalifah is a professor of geophysics in the division of Physical Sciences and Engineering at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST). He assumed his duties there in June 2009. Prior to joining KAUST, Tariq was a research professor and director of the Oil and Gas Research Institute at King Abdulaziz City for Science & Technology (KACST). He has also been associate research professor, assistant research professor and research assistant at KACST. From 1996 to 1998, Tariq served as a postdoctoral researcher for the Stanford Exploration Project at Stanford University, USA. He received the J. Clarence Karcher Award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in 1998 and the Conrad Schlumberger Award from the European Association for Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) in 2003. He is a member of SEG and EAGE. Tariq received his doctoral degree in geophysics (1997) and master's degree (1993) in geophysical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, USA. He holds a bachelor's degree (1988) in geophysics from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia. Tariq's research interests are in full waveform inversion, imaging and velocity model building for exploration seismic data with special emphasis on media that exhibit anisotropic behavior of wave propagation. He is also interested in seismic acquisition and processing of near surface data for better near surface treatment.
