The primary purpose in presenting this paper is to emphasize that in seismic prospecting one must be able to arrive at a logical answer using the least expensive, reliable method for defining seismic prospects. A discussion of the history of seismic prospecting, use of previously recorded seismic data, with a summary of advanced seismic techniques will be given.
Many of the basins in the Rocky Mountains will be reviewed with an outline of the recommended seismic methods suited to each of these basins. I shall attempt to illustrate how the seismologist and geologist can use the seismic part of their exploration budget most effectively in each of these basins and in each new prospect or area of interest they encounter.
