The SEAM mission is to advance the science and technology of applied geophysics through a cooperative industry effort focused on subsurface model construction and generation of synthetic data sets for geophysical problems of importance to the resource extraction industry. Data sets, after an initial two years of confidentiality, will enter the public domain.
The primary goals of SEAM are to: Design and generate synthetic model 3D and 2D seismic data Share the high cost effort of substantial model design and generation Provide a forum to discuss geophysical problems of interest Advance the art of modeling and computation Provide data sets for industry benchmarks and educational purposes
