The Philosophical Doctrine of Accurate Subsurface Interpretation and Mapping The object of this class is to give you the basic principles of describing the subsurface with limited remote sensing information And to introduce you to new computer oriented techniques for visualizing and analyzing this subsurface data. We will use the 10 key points of (Teapock and Bischke, 2006) philosophy of subsurface interpretation as the bases for this class. Brown 2010

Goal of the class and supporting labs Is to give the student a solid foundation in understanding the science of subsurface geologic structural analysis. This will support knowledge needed to properly describe the structural configuration of strata in the subsurface as to their 3D shape and the impact faulting has on defining that shape. This is primarily done in this course to give the advancing Petroleum engineer or Petroleum geologist the foundation for: Analyzing a geologic trap associated with hydrocarbon entrapment This in essence requires the student to understand the fundamental way a subsurface geologic structure is described and utilized in predicting hydrocarbon entrapment and for constructing a geologically sound framework of the reservoir This analysis is then used in optimizing hydrocarbon production through improved wellbore placement and reservoir fluid and pressure management.
