In his introduction to the special section on deepwater in the April 1999 issue of TLE, Gene Sparkman asked, “Can geophysics keep the industry from getting in over its head?” In demonstrating how geophysicists are coming to grips with the difficult and unique challenges of deepwater exploration and production, the following papers answer Gene's question with a firm and unhesitating yes.

To meet the technical challenges of deepwater projects, geophysicists continue to develop and successfully apply a wide variety of geophysical tools and techniques. These involve advanced depth imaging through high-resolution data acquisition and processing for improved reservoir description...
