About SEAM

The SEG Advanced Modeling Corporation is an industrial consortium dedicated to large-scale leading-edge geophysical numerical modeling.

On 14 February 2007, the SEG Advanced Modeling (SEAM) Corporation was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the state of Oklahoma, with SEG as sole member, for the purpose of fiduciary, policy, and management oversight of the SEAM projects ("Phases"). SEAM is an industrial consortia dedicated to large-scale leading-edge geophysical numerical modeling.

Projects

The SEAM projects provide the geophysical exploration community with geophysical model data at a level of complexity and size that cannot be practicably computed by any single company or small number of companies. A general introduction to the SEAM initiative can be found in TLE's June 2007 issue (44kb PDF).

Mission

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.

Goals

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
