In recent years new methods and tools were developed in seismic survey design to address the increasing complexity of geophysical and geological problems that seismic exploration is faced with. In this paper we discuss three of these new developments: the application of point-spread functions for seismic resolution analysis, seismic survey design based on Bayesian methodology, and the generation of the seismic response for a fractured reservoir using 3D elastic general anisotropic finite-difference modeling. We demonstrate that these methods can be used effectively for seismic survey design.
