One of the most important tools used in oil and gas exploration is the seismic modeling. The seismic reflection is a geophysical technique that uses the propagation of compressional waves – similar to an earthquake – to achieve a geological structure profile. From the reflectors present in the seismic profile, it is possible to infer the nature and the structural characteristics of sedimentary layers. In other words, it is performed a mapping of the earth’s subsurface.
