The additional data useful for a basin wide exploration can traditionally be found in potential field data (gravity and magnetic data) and also in electromagnetic data (interestingly enough the oldest exploration tool). Especially in Controlled Source (deep) marine ElectroMagnetic methods can we measure the reservoir resistivity directly which is a direct indicator that it could contain hydrocarbons. On land in remote areas the MagnetoTelluric Method is an efficient exploration tool. However, none of these methods will solve all problems, but in combining them we gain more than just the sum of the individual benefits by using as a constraint in Seismic Inversion. The course will also shed light to understand the concept of formation evaluation and well logging

Phased array processing systems that consist of multiple sensors are used in RADAR, SONAR, communications, seismics
and commercial audio. The arrays are similar to traditional parabolic dish antennas in which they use spatial diversity to
focus transmit/receive energy along certain directions. Traditional antennas rely on mechanical steering to vary the focus
direction, which is slow and not feasible always. On the other hand, phased array systems electronically vary the phases
(and amplitudes) of the sensors. This principle is called as phase steering and offers speed and flexibility in varying the array
radiation or receive pattern. This course is the first part of a two semester offering on phased array processing. During
JanuaryMay, the course teaches spatial array design and analysis using the basics of antenna theory, and Finite Impulse
Response (FIR) systems. Thereceive and transmit beam patterns of various line, planar, and nonplanar arrays are
discussed in terms of their beamwidth, resolution, and spatial aliasing limitations. FIR design techniques are also used to
synthesize desired beam patterns. In addition to this, the course also discusses sparse and random arrays. The topics
covered in this course will be used in the AugustDecember semester to develop spatial processing techniques.
Syllabus
Motivation for phased array systems, wave propagation fundamentals such as refraction, diffraction, wavenumbers, wavefront
curvature, near field, far field effects. Antenna fundamentals.
Radiation patterns for antenna apertures. Fourier transforms for signals in space. Effects of aperture, beamwidth, sidelobes,
and spatial tapers.
Arrays as sampled apertures. ztransform to calculate the beampattern of the spatial array. Effects of spatial sampling,
grating lobes, visible region, SNR gain and its relation to beamwidth.
Array design techniques using FIR theory. Analysis of various array config urations such as line, planar and nonplanar
arrays. Sparse arrays and subarrays will also be discussed.

estimation for arrays. Angle of Arrival estimation.
