dc.description.abstract Petroleum Exploration requires the analysis of different types of data such as satellite imagery, seismic surveys, surface geology studies, subsurface and cross section interpretations and images, well locations, and existing infrastructure information. In this thesis the greatest advantage of Remote Sensing; the synoptic view that it provides, a regional and integrated perspective of interrelations between various land features it gives, the availability of multi-spectral data as well as the advanced capabilities of digital image processing techniques along with the potential of Remote Sensing in generating enhanced and interpretable image is used in delineating the lithological contacts and geological structure in great details with better accuracy than it was. In this thesis GIS is used as a decision support system to demonstrate its with capabilities of efficient data storage and overlay analysis of spatial data from diverse sources, in order to relate all of the data sets (remote ensing, seismic, gravity, geochemical and other ancillary data) to each other, allowing overlying, view, and manipulate the data in the form of a map to thoroughly analyze the potential for understanding or extending play potential in the study area. So With the application of remote sensing and GIS capability, Exploration can be done more accurately, faster, and for less cost. Key words: remote sensing, GIS, gravity, seismic, geochemical en_US
