Book Description :

Fractal Models in Geophysics: Seismic Modelling and Interpretation describes fractal-based models for characterizing and interpreting complex subsurface geological structures based on gravity and magnetic data. The book introduces the inverse problem using a fractal approach, which is then developed with the implementation of a global optimization algorithm for seismic data: very fast simulated annealing (VFSA). It discusses applications in seismic exploration, modelling, interpretation, and rock property estimation. Updated with the latest technology and examples, Fractal Models in Geophysics demonstrates how the fractal theory has challenged the concept of random distribution of source's properties, such as reflectivity, density, porosity. As such, it is a valuable resource for geophysicists and exploration geologists, as well as to those interested the study of seismicity and reservoirs. Serves as a valuable resource for researchers studying the application of fractals in exploration, modelling, and interpretation, and for practitioners directly applying field data for geophysical modelling and estimating reservoir rock properties Discusses the basic principles and practical applications of time-lapse seismic reservoir monitoring technology Demonstrates how the fractal theory can be used the processing and inversion of seismic data as well as in seismic reservoir characterization Includes updates throughout to reflect advances in the field and technology

Book Description :

This book deals with fractals in understanding problems encountered in earth science, and their solutions. It starts with an analysis of two classes of methods (homogeneous fractals random models, and homogeneous source distributions or “one point” distributions) widely diffused in the geophysical community, especially for studying potential fields and their related source distributions. Subsequently, the use of fractals in potential fields is described by scaling spectral methods for estimation of curie depth. The book also presents an update of the use of the fractal concepts in geological understanding of faults and their significance in geological modelling of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Geophysical well log data provide a unique description of the subsurface lithology; here, the Detrended Fluctuation Analysis technique is presented in case studies located off the west-coast of India. Another important topic is the fractal model of continuum percolation which quantitatively reproduce the flow path geometry by applying the Poiseuille’s equation. The pattern of fracture heterogeneity in reservoir scale of natural geological formations can be viewed as spatially distributed self-similar tree structures; here, the authors present simple analytical models based on the medium structural characteristics to explain the flow in natural fractures. The Fractal Differential Adjacent Segregation (F-DAS) is an unconventional approach for fractal dimension estimation using a box count method. The present analysis provides a better understanding of variability of the system (adsorbents – adsorbate interactions). Towards the end of book, the authors discuss multi-fractal scaling properties of seismograms in order to quantify the complexity associated with high-frequency seismic signals. Finally, the book presents a review on fractal methods applied to fire point processes and satellite time-continuous signals that are sensitive to fire occurrences.

Book Description :

This book addresses the feasibility of CO2-EOR and sequestration in a mature Indian oil field, pursuing for the first time a cross-disciplinary approach that combines the results from reservoir modeling and flow simulation, rock physics modeling, geomechanics, and time-lapse (4D) seismic monitoring study. The key findings presented indicate that the field under study holds great potential for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and subsequent CO2 storage. Experts around the globe argue that storing CO2 by means of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) could support climate change mitigation by reducing the amount of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere by ca. 20%. CO2-EOR and sequestration is a cutting-edge and emerging field of research in India, and there is an urgent need to assess Indian hydrocarbon reservoirs for the feasibility of CO2-EOR and storage. Combining the fundamentals of the technique with concrete examples, the book is essential reading for all researchers, students and oil & gas professionals who want to fully understand CO2-EOR and its geologic sequestration process in mature oil fields.

Book Description :

It is with pleasure that I write the foreword to this excellent book. A wide range of observations in geology and solid-earth geophysics can be - plained in terms of fractal distributions. In this volume a collection of - pers considers the fractal behavior of the Earth's continental crust. The book begins with an excellent introductory chapter by the editor Dr. V.P. Dimri. Surface gravity anomalies are known to exhibit power-law spectral behavior under a wide range of conditions and scales. This is self-affine fractal behavior. Explanations of this behavior remain controversial. In chapter 2 V.P. Dimri and R.P. Srivastava model this behavior using Voronoi tessellations. Another approach to understanding the structure of the continental crust is to use electromagnetic induction experiments. Again the results often exhibit power law spectral behavior. In chapter 3 K. Bahr uses a fractal based random resister network model to explain the observations. Other examples of power-law spectral observations come from a wide range of well logs using various logging tools. In chapter 4 M. Fedi, D. Fiore, and M. La Manna utilize multifractal models to explain the behavior of well logs from the main KTB borehole in Germany. In chapter 5 V.V. Surkov and H. Tanaka model the electrokinetic currents that may be as- ciated with seismic electric signals using a fractal porous media. In chapter 6 M. Pervukhina, Y. Kuwahara, and H. Ito use fractal n- works to correlate the elastic and electrical properties of porous media.

Book Description :

A fractal is a mathematical set or object whose form is extremely irregular and/or fragmented at all scales. So reads Mandelbrot's definition of the term which he coined and widely popularised in his famous monographs. This volume presents the first systematic summary of the fractal models that have been proposed to explain the irregular features and phenomena of the Earth -- from meandering rivers and rugged coastlines to the pore space of reservoir sandstones and the prediction of earthquakes. No previous knowledge of fractals is assumed. Connections and analogies with other fields of natural and technical sciences (physics, biology, fractography, etc.) are always pointed out. More than 300 illustrations are included, demonstrating how fractal geometry reveals astonishing similarities between natural phenomena at widely different scales. The readership for this book is wide and includes: geological scientists, oceanographers, and meteorologists involved in describing and analysing irregular spatial data; as well as applied mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists looking for new fields of research.
