This concludes my introduction. In summary, I hope to spend my duration at the SEP advancing research in the area of reservoir characterization, including 3-D interval velocity analysis, ``true amplitude'' elastic prestack depth migration, elastic parameter inversion, and geostatistical analysis. Hopefully I will be able to obtain a suitable comprehensive data set to test my research results, ideally in an actively producing reservoir environment. And, all this in two years.
