Completed Study

Bob A. Hardage and I. J. Aluka (Prairie View A&M University), principal investigators; Michael V. DeAngelo

As a subcontractor to Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) in this project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Bureau has given PVAMU an extensive database of multicomponent seismic data and digitized well log curves, assisted PVAMU in acquiring interpretation software from Seismic MicroTechnology, and provided regular technical advice and consultation to PVAMU faculty. The objective is to introduce seismic stratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy concepts into the Earth Sciences curriculum at Prairie View A&M.
