Society of Petroleum Geophysicists, Ahmedabad Chapter, Ahmedabad conducted a lecture on “Passive Seismic Tomography (PST), QC and application of PST-derived velocity for seismic imaging” by SEG honorary lecturer Dr. JVSSN Murty at Hotel Metropole on 19th June, 2017.
Session started with brief introduction about the objective of the program by the Secretary SPG, Ahmedabad Chapter ShriHarjinder Singh, DGM (GP). In his welcome address he told that this program was an initiative for Knowledge Sharing and to get better subsurface imaging for Enhanced oil recovery (EOR).Furtherthe talk was targeted to groom the youngsters.

During his lecture Dr. JVSSN Murty,detailed the concept of passive seismic tomography.He explained that Passive Seismic Tomography (PST) method uses both P-wave and S-wave travel times from naturally occurring low-intensity earthquakes recorded over a period of time. Field example was also presented to understand concepts, benefits and the limitations of PST.
In the feedback session it was perceived that the knowledge imparted through presentation and deliberations in the session were of great importance. The participants appreciated the talk and found it very informative.
