Research and Data

Research data provides benchmarking tools for industry to test algorithms for imaging and inversion, better understand features and artifacts in real images, and explore trade-offs in acquisition methodologies. Research data also provides teaching tools for academia to train the next generation of seismic processing and imaging experts.

SEG Advanced Modeling Corp (SEAM)

The SEG Advanced Modeling Program (SEAM) is a partnership between industry and SEG designed to advance geophysical science and technology through the construction of subsurface models and generation of synthetic data sets.
