The Earth Model Project is an SEG initiative to promote integration of earth science data and knowledge to provide quantitative interpretations. The goal is to help stimulate a fundamental change in visualizing and predicting subsurface structure, rock, and fluid properties quantitatively along with estimates of uncertainty.
This special section of Interpretation includes six contributions that present multidisciplinary workflows for conventional and unconventional reservoir characterization, reservoir property uncertainty, quantitative risk reduction, and structural uncertainty.
A major challenge in seismic imaging is to derive optimal velocity and anisotropic models for input to imaging algorithms. De Prisco et al. describe the workflow...
