Spring 2006 Course AnnouncementsReflection Seismology
Dr. Roy A. Johnson
One course in Reflection Seismology will be
offered in the spring semester, 2006:
GEOS 469/569, Geophysical Data Processing.
This course explores the theoretical basis and practical applications of
time-series analysis and digital-filtering theory applied to geophysical data.
The most common use of digital filtering techniques is in seismic data
processing, but digital filtering techniques can be applied to virtually any
time series (such as the fluctuating value of a particular company's shares on
the stock market) or to spatially sampled data (such as the earth's
gravitational field). Students have the opportunity to apply different digital
filters and data processing procedures to seismic reflection data to enhance
subsurface imaging of geologic structures, as well as to analyze spatially
sampled data (e.g., topography, gravitational fields, magnetic fields, etc.) to
gain hands-on experience in using these powerful techniques. No programming
experience is required, but students will have the opportunity to work
extensively with state-of-the-art commercial and scientific software on advanced
computer systems. For more information, click the course title above.
