The new SYNTH/LOGSEC modelling facility

Chad M. Hogan, Gary F. Margrave

LOGSEC is an interactive GUI program used to create stratigraphic cross-sections tied to wells, and to propagate well logs through those cross-sections. SYNTH generates a single full-offset shot gather including P-P and P-S data from a single well log. We are integrating the functionality within SYNTH into LOGSEC to allow the generation of full-offset P-P and P-S synthetic gathers through the entire cross-section in order to simulate a 2-D seismic survey across the section. The resulting data is available to MATLAB directly or to other processing packages via SEG-Y formatted files.
