Our co-edited "Atlas of Structural Geological Interpretation on Seismic Images” will be published by Wiley Blackwell. We invite you and your research group to submit four contributions/entries (four seismic colour images and captions), from any terrain, in this atlas. You can submit your already published images after taking due permission.
If you are interested, kindly express interest within 29-Sept-2015 at firstname.lastname@example.org and submit contributions within Nov 2015. Please ask for clarifications if you need so.
1. Expression of interest: 29-Sept-2015
2. Submission of images and captions: Nov 2015
3. Review comments reach authors: Dec 2015
4. Book ms submitted to Wiley Blackwell: March 2016
5. Book publication: October 2016
Wiley Blackwell will publish the atlas with all images in colour. Therefore we are seeking high resolution (300 dpi) colour images from potential authors. Images need not come from the same terrain, and may represent different structures. Captions should be wellexplanatory and utilize up to 500 words. Compulsorily provide us uninterpreted seismic images as well. Include explanatory sketches/models/maps/3D views/seismic attribute images/well data etc. to support your interpretation. It will be good to provide up to 4 references per caption so that the reader can go back to the key publications and learn more about that structure and the terrain.
Interpretation could be inherently subjective. To address this important yet commonly overlooked aspect, we wish to get some of the submitted seismic images interpreted by another author who is unaware of the terrain. If you agree to have your seismic image interpreted by another author, please mention that in the cover letter. There is nothing wrong or right in another interpretation, and experienced interpreters tend to be very close to reality (Bond et al. 2015, Geol. Soc. Sp. Pub. 421: dx.doi.org/10.1144/SP421.4). This will be very informative for the readers and may even provide the contributors with possible alternate interpretations. We may keep such re-interpretations in a web-based repository as “Supplementary Material”.
If you have diffraction seismic images as a new imaging technology, we would encourage to submit those images along with their interpretations. Please demonstrate how they are better in imaging certain structures.
We intend to have the following chapters/divisions in the book. However, being an edited volume, the final chapters will actually depend on the actual contributions received. We (editors) will write brief introduction for individual chapters. In case your contribution does not match with the contents that we have set, we can add up a miscellaneous section to incorporate such images and contributions.
We anticipate the book will be of great use in both academics and intustry.
