Overview

The Rock Physics Handbook brings together the theory and data that form the foundations of rock physics, with particular emphasis on the needs of interpreters of seismic data. In concise summaries, this book makes available a vast amount of laboratory and theoretical material in an accessible form. This collection of an otherwise scattered and eclectic mass of data is presented in such a way that it can be immediately applied to solve real problems. Geophysics researchers and students as well as petroleum engineers and environmental geoscientists will value The Rock Physics Handbook as a resource for practical problem solving.

About the Author

Gary Mavko received his Ph.D. in geophysics from Stanford University in 1977 where he is now Professor (Research) of Geophysics. Professor Mavko co-directs the Stanford Rock Physics and Borehole Geophysics Project (SRB), a group of approximately 25 researchers working on problems related to wave propagation in earth materials. Professor Mavko is also a co-author of Quantitative Seismic Interpretation (Cambridge, 2005), and has been an invited instructor for numerous industry courses on rock physics for seismic reservoir characterization. He received the Honorary Membership award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists in 2001, and was the SEG Distinguished Lecturer in 2006.

Tapan Mukerji received his Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University in 1995 and is now an Associate Professor (Research) in Energy Resources Engineering and a member of the Stanford Rock Physics Project at Stanford University. Professor Mukerji co-directs the Stanford Center for Reservoir Forecasting (SCRF) focussing on problems related to uncertainty and data integration for reservoir modeling. His research interests include wave propagation and statistical rock physics, and he specializes in applied rock physics and geostatistical methods for seismic reservoir characterization, fracture detection, 4-D monitoring, and shallow subsurface environmental applications. Professor Mukerji is also a co-author of Quantitative Seismic Interpretation, and has taught numerous industry courses. He received the Karcher award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists in 2000.

Jack Dvorkin received his Ph.D. in Continuum Mechanics in 1980 from Moscow University in the USSR. He has worked in the petroleum industry in the USSR and USA and is currently a Senior Research Scientist with the Stanford Rock Physics Project at Stanford University. Dr Dvorkin has been an invited instructor for numerous industry courses throughout the world, on rock physics and quantitative seismic interpretation. He is a member of American Geophysical Union, Society of Exploration Geophysicists, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, and the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
