Active Uses of Passive Seismic Data
WesternGeco, Houston, TX, USA

Welcome to the 2014 IRIS Industry Meeting



Autonomous seismic exploration acquisition equipment allows the economic collection of continuous passive seismic data that is not normally acquired in conjunction with controlled-source seismic exploration. This passive data records naturally occurring signals (ambient noise, micro-earthquakes, and teleseismic events) that can provide additional understanding of the subsurface. Recent advances in seismic data analysis can utilize these naturally occurring signals to complement and enhance subsurface images from active source seismic surveys. These advances incorporate techniques that cross-over between exploration and earthquake seismology, and are being applied to 3D and 4D active source surveys.

About the Meeting:

This meeting will explore emerging topics of common interest to industry- and academic-based seismologists. Topics will include applications and algorithms, instrumentation and sensors, using dense arrays in both active and passive source applications, multi-use data sets, managing large data sets, and developing the workforce of the future. The primary goal of the meeting is to facilitate substantive collaborations between IRIS seismologists and industry.

Meeting Format:

The format of the meeting will be five sessions of talks and discussions progressing from sensors and acquisition strategies in the ground through data handling, modeling and interpretation techniques to the people in front of the desktops.
