This book introduces methodologies for subsurface imaging based upon asymptotic and trajectory-based methods for modeling fluid flow, transport and deformation. It describes trajectory-based imaging from its mathematical formulation, through the construction and solution of the imaging equations, to the assessment of the accuracy and resolution associated with the image. Unique in its approach, it provides a unified framework for the complete spectrum of physical phenomena from wave-like hyperbolic problems to diffusive parabolic problems and non-linear problems of mixed character. The practical aspects of imaging, particularly efficient and robust methods for updating high resolution geologic models using fluid flow, transport and geophysical data, are emphasized throughout the book. Complete with online software applications and examples that enable readers to gain hands-on experience, this volume is an invaluable resource for graduate-level courses, as well as for academic researchers and industry practitioners in the fields of geoscience, hydrology, and petroleum and environmental engineering.Read more
- Takes an interdisciplinary approach, promoting cross-fertilization between disciplines, particularly geophysics, hydrological science and petroleum engineering
- Focuses on the practical side of imaging and inversion, emphasizing methods that are computationally efficient, robust and easy to implement successfully
- Software applications and examples are provided for hands-on experience
Reviews & endorsements
'The presentation is really innovative and allows [readers] to get a unified view on the modelling of different physical processes from wave-like hyperbolic problems, to diffusive parabolic problems and non-linear coupled problems of mixed character. The exposed imaging techniques present the advantage of being well adapted for further determining accuracy and spatial resolution of the simulated results. The book is well written, many clear figures are used … The references and index lists are very useful for the interested reader.' A. Dassargues, Mathematical Geosciences
