Project Objectives

The project will contribute to the evolution of geophysical imaging technology by providing a realistic benchmark geological model containing multiple geophysical attributes along with two synthetic seismic datasets and three synthetic nonseismic datasets that will allow industry to assess individual as well as joint geophysical acquisition and processing techniques for generating images of hydrocarbon reservoirs beneath and surrounding massive, complex salt bodies.
