4D Monitoring: Goals, Models, and Measurements

January 01, 2005


Now that we have seen some examples of what 4D monitoring can do, let us consider how to decide what we want from a 4D survey on a particular field, whether this is likely to be feasible, what we are going measure, and what the benefits might be. Answering those questions will make or break the case for 4D monitoring, will uncover controversy, will get everyone involved, and will enable us to plan the 4D program properly. Even geophysicists do not yet agree on what the quantified results obtained by a 4D monitoring program should be.
