Coding and Decoding Seismic Data: The Concept of Multishooting, Volume One, Second Edition, offers a thorough investigation of modern techniques for collecting, simulating, and processing multishooting data. Currently, the acquisition of seismic surveys is performed as a sequential operation in which shots are computed separately, one after the other. The cost of performing various shots simultaneously is almost identical to that of one shot; thus, the benefits of using the multishooting approach for computing seismic surveys are enormous.

By using this approach, the longstanding problem of simulating a three-dimensional seismic survey can be reduced to a matter of weeks. Providing both theoretical and practical explanations of the multishooting approach, including case histories, this book is an essential resource for exploration geophysicists and practicing seismologists.

About Luc T. Ikelle

Dr. Luc Ikelle is a Professor in Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University. He received his PhD in Geophysics from Paris 7 University in 1986 and has sense cultivated expertise in: seismic data acquisition, modeling, processing, and interpretation for conventional and unconventional energy production; inverse problem theory, signal processing, linear and nonlinear elastic wave propagation, linear and nonlinear optics, and continuum and fracture mechanics. His research interests include a combined analysis of petroleum systems, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions based on geology, geophysics, statistical modeling, and control theory. He is a founding member of Geoscientists Without Borders, for which he received an award from SEG in 2010. He is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Seismic Exploration and has published 107 refereed publications in international journals.
