Estimation of petrophysical properties of hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs using frequency dependent Amplitude Variation with Offset (FAVO) analysis (~ 47 lakhs)
(In this project, I have proposed to capture the dispersion effect caused due to the wave induced fluid flow, analysing industry standard seismic datasets.  We are going to develop algorithms for inversions in poroelastic medium to estimate frequency dependent physical parameters.. Interested candidates with sound background in Physics / Mathematics / Geophysics / Computer Science are requested to contact me at dghosal(at)iitk.ac.in sooner than later.)

(Early career research award)
Delineation of shallow subsurface morphotectonics below the Central siesmic gap - Himalaya using an integration of passive and controlled source seismology (~ 53 lakhs)
(In this project, I have proposed to integrate the passive and active seismological datasets to delineate the shallow subsurface structures in details. We will carry out the travel time tomography and ambient noise tomography on the collected datasets.)

Modeling of Gas hydrate reservoir using integrated techniques (~ 66 lakhs)
(In this project, I have proposed to develop a novel integrated technique including 3D downward continuation, 2D/3D travel time tomography and 2.5D Full Waveform Inversion (FWI) to tackle the wide-angle high resolution multi-channel seismic datasets to image shallow targets with a greater precision. Interested candidates with sound background in Physics / Mathematics / Geophysics / Computer Science are requested to contact me at dghosal(at)iitk.ac.in sooner than later.)
