EarthDat – the new portal of geophysical data, geophysical models and software code links

Posted by on Tuesday, 14 June, 2011

This site is a portal to websites where information about geophysical data, geophysical models and software code can be found. The motivation for this is to:

  • Stimulate the use of common models
  • Use existing models/data from major efforts in the past
  • Stimulate use of models and methods across disciplines, e.g. seismology and seismic exploration
  • Stimulate use of open software, programmed at academia level and/or companies
  • Stimulate standardizations

This site offers specific support for Education and Research & Development (benchmarking and testing).

The used interface offers a variety of ways to browse through the database and find material you want.

Seismic Acquisition from Yesterday to Tomorrow

Seismic Acquisition from Yesterday to Tomorrow

Julien Meunier
During the last few years, seismic acquisition has gone through a phase of fast acceleration, attested to by the development of wide-azimuth surveys, the continuous increase in channel count, and the progress in simultaneous shooting. These developments, made possible by technological advancements today, will enable the production of clearer seismic images tomorrow. Seismic Acquisition from Yesterday to Tomorrow (SEG Distinguished Instructor Series No. 14), the companion book for the 2011 SEG/EAGE Distinguished Instructor Short Course, offers a reflection on this evolution. It starts with a short historical overview, followed by discussions of signal and noise. The core of the book is the relationship between acquisition parameters and seismic-image quality. It will provide geoscientists and all those interested in seismic images with the still unconventional view of seismic data acquisition as the first component of seismic imaging.
