Standard 3-D Survey Design

Table 2 shows the input data for the standard design. The two most critical parameters, since they control the cost of the survey, are the maximum dip and the minimum target depth. The maximum dip controls the spatial sampling whereas the minimum target depth controls the separation between the receiver and shot lines as I will show below. In Appendix A a give a fairly detailed description of the computation of the geometry parameters summarized on Table 2.
