REPORT ON GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS AT IKOT NAKANDA, AKPABUYO LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF CROSS RIVER STATE, NIGERIA

Geophysical field school is an annual academic camping exercise that is aimed at exposing students to the practical aspects of geophysics. It is a three (3) credit hour course for third year students of applied geophysics aimed at educating students on the handling of geophysical equipment and the rudiments of data acquisition, processing and interpretation.This year’s field school was held at Ikot Nakanda and its environs, in Akpabuyo locall government area of Cros...

Forensic Geophysics: Geophysical Techniques and Applications

Forensic geophysics can be seen as that involving the use of geophysical methods in the search, locating and mapping of hidden or buried features underground or underwater. Geophysical methods have the potential to aid the search and recovery of a target because they can nondestructively and rapidly investigate large areas where a suspect, illegal burial or, in general, a forensic target or object is hidden in the subsurface.

SEISMIC CHRONOSTRATIGRAPHY: PROSPECTS IN PETROLEUM EXPLORATION

Seismic survey has long become a trusted tool for hydrocarbon exploration. This is because of the outstanding ability of seismic reflections and their over lapping relationships to image deep and shallow subsurface structures and delineate promising structural and stratigraphic traps. These subsurface features become good prospecting targets, maybe because of their depositional history or post depositional eve...

FIBRE OPTIC IN RESERVOIR SENSING

Fibre optic technologies came out of military and space research and development programme. Until recently, glass chemistry and laser interrogation hardware have not been at a level of robust where systems could survive in down-hole environments for long periods. Because of the physical properties, glass can thrive as a sensor at extremely high temperatures and efficiently high temperatures and efficiently tra...

SEISMIC TIME-LAPSE RESERVOIR MONITORING

Time lapse seismic which geophysicists often abbreviate to four dimensional (4-D) seismic is a geophysical technique which involves simply repeating a series of 3-D seismic survey over time such that the fourth dimension is in “Calendar Time”. This gives it the ability to image fluid flow in a well volume.

CHARACTERISTICS OF POLLUTED SANDS A CASE STUDY IN NIGER DELTA (REVIEW)

ABSTRACTThis study is aimed at using the characteristics of polluted soil to delineate different soillayers and deduce ways of providing remediation to the problems generated as aresult of soil pollution using Electrical Resistivity Method.An inversion of the measured apparent resistivity values using a computer program was carriedout to determine the true subsurface resistivity. This method was used toestimate the lateral and vertical extend to which a particular soil has beencontaminated by...
