Interpretation Deliverables

Our Methodology and Deliverables

  • Oil Industry standard seismic interpretation software has been modified for geotechnical applications
    • Well spots, logs and soil types can be integrated with the seismic profiles to tie the profiles to drill or CPT locations.
    • Horizons or lithologic boundaries are interactively “picked” along the profiles and can be exported as ASCII or excel databases.
    • Seismic times can be converted to depth and contours can be generated for each layer that tie the drill logs.
    • Velocity sections are generated and overlaid on the seismic profiles to identify layer characteristics

Our Competitive Edge - Interpretation

  • Oil industry standard deliverables ready for integration to geotechnical workflows including:
    • Stratigraphic and structural profiles validated with available well and CPT data
    • Lithologic horizons ready for integration with other engineering datasets
    • Velocity sections overlain on seismic profiles for geotechnical or hydrogeological modeling
    • Estimates of engineering parameters such as shear modulus
  • Quickly identify subsurface features such as tunnels, fluids, low shear strength materials and buried channels.
