Seismic Reflection Fundamentals: Meet the Course Leader!

Sun 29 April 2018

Category: Courses

As the Seismic Reflection Fundamentals course is fast approaching, let us take the opportunity to introduce course leader Bill Ashcroft.

Following a degree in Geology, Dr Ashcroft joined Seismograph Service Ltd (SSL) in 1959 and was employed as ‘Party Computer’ on a seismic crew in East Yemen and Party Manager on seismic crews in Nigeria. After 3 years with SSL he gained MSc and PhD degrees in Applied Geophysics from the University of Birmingham and joined the Department of Geology at the University of Aberdeen where he was responsible for teaching Geophysics, notably a course in seismic reflection to the MSc students in Petroleum Geology and was heavily involved in supervising post-grad students on seismic topics, generally in cooperation with oil companies working in Aberdeen. He retired from the University in 1999 and in 2013 published “A Petroleum Geologist’s Guide to Seismic Reflection” (Wiley-Blackwell). In recent years he has given 4 short courses to industry personnel on the basis of that book.

This two-day course is aimed at geologists, petroleum engineers and anyone who has to interface with geophysicists in exploration and production with less than 5 years’ experience. Lecture sessions are minimised and hands-on tutorials are maximised throughout the course.

No previous exposure to seismic data is assumed.
