Seismic Interpretation

Project Summary:

The objective is to explore the application of seismic data for mapping brackish aquifers (1,000 to 5,000 feet depth) as it is commonly used in the oil and gas field. The project will support the overall investigation of brackish groundwater in the aquifers of the state by providing geologic information about the stratigraphic and structural features based on interpretations from existing seismic surveys.
