About Sam

I was a geoscientist and worked in Oil and Gas industry in exploration for energy resources buried deep underground, applying scientific algorithms to image the earth’s subsurface to locate oil bearing geologic formations. The algorithms are written in modern computer software to solve seismic wave propagation, transmission and reflection through the various rocks, undergoing changes as a result. Algorithms try to correct the changes, and extracting the parameters that potentially caused the changes. A process of this nature is known as inverse methods or simply inversion. Changes or distortions happen due to the changes in the rock properties. The rock characteristics or loosely the properties helps the geoscientists to map potential oil and or gas bearing geological strata ! There is a lot of steps, but this is a brief description of the goal of science as applied in this industry !
