    Abstract: The lack of drilling data is a difficult problem in the study of reservoir configuration under the condition of sparse well pattern. In this paper, the seismic data are fully excavated, and the methods of frequency RGB fusion, small scale river sand attribute fusion and horizontal well data combination are used to study the river level, the level p...

    Abstract: The potential for seismic hazard in Taiwan is quite high. In addition to the comprehensive reinforcement of the earthquake resistance of old construction, a short period of time can be immediately is the implementation of earthquake prevention and rescue education. Because of the blind zone of the existing strong earthquake real-time alarm system, ... Show More
