Keywords:

Velocity analysis, seismic processing, seismic imaging, seismic interpretation


Research Summary:

My thesis subject is implementing velocity analysis in the surface offset domain. Like other variants of velocity analysis (shot, plane-wave based), I use offsets as an additional dimension to allow the inversion to avoid cycle skipping. This algorithm required developing reverse-time migration (RTM) in the common offset domain, and its extension to a least-squares migration, both currently in preparation for publication.

Research Summary:

Jacob's research into the Upper Cambrian Microbial reefs outcropping in Mason county Texas, has utilized CT scanning technology to generate mineralogical trends from whole core in the dominate facies. He has additionally pioneered a method that tracks the extent of diagenetic alteration in log form.

Keywords:

Glacial geology, marine geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy


Research Summary:

My research is motivated by the need for an understanding of complex ice-ocean interactions that influence ice sheet stability. Using detailed sedimentology coupled with high-resolution bathymetric data, I define paleo-environments that are critical in determining timing, rates, style, and processes involved in past ice sheet retreat. My work is centered on Antarctic glacial margins, primarily in the Ross Sea and Marguerite Bay.
