The Way to Characterize Reservoir on Fine Scales -- Seismic Waveform Inversion by Particle Swarm Optimization

We propose to apply Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to solve inversion problems in geophysics petroleum exploration. Our recent study shows that PSO can provide accurate results and uncertainty quantification in the seismic waveform inversion for oil reservoir models on fine scales.
