Abstract: This publication summarizes the research on seismic imaging of in situ bitumen deposits. The objective of the research was to obtain enhanced and higher resolution images of the subsurface earth in the vicinity of steam injection sites with the use of surface seismic reflection 3-dimensional data. The applied research was carried out in a major collaborative project with industrial partners, and was set up to explore both the experimental and the theoretical aspects of the physical properties of elastic and porous media in which remote sensing using seismic waves and the theory of seismology can contribute. 648 references.
