Video: Acceleware Reverse Time Migration

As oil and gas exploration is forced to deal with increasingly complex geologies, many of the established imaging methods (for example Kirchhoff depth) can struggle to produce accurate images. Reverse Time Migration (RTM) has become firmly established in recent years as the preferred imaging option for complex geologies. Its simplicity and superior imaging quality stem from the use of a full solution 2-way wave equation. This makes no approximations limiting the direction in which seismic energy can travel.

Slidecast: GPU Technology and Usage Models

GPUs and their applications can be a complex topic. This week I came across an insideHPC article of NVIDIA presenting an introduction into the GPU technology and usage models. So, if you are interested in an introduction of what GPUs can do for you, look no further!

SEG 2010 Wrap-up

At the 2010 Society of Exploration Geophysicists Meeting in Denver last week, Acceleware Research Scientist Dr. Damir Pasalic was concerned about the energy he would need to present two technical papers that are part of our work on Reverse Time Migration (RTM): "Convolutional perfectly matched layer for isotropic and anisotropic acoustic wave equations" and "A discontinuous mesh finite difference scheme for acoustic wave equations.”

What happened to the summer?

I know that Acceleware has not posted any blog entries since the end of June…..let me try to explain why. In this part of the world, summer is short. This year our summer weather has created a new definition for short as May and June were cool and rainy, and July was not much better. However during our summer months we spend as much time outside as possible soaking up the long summer days and the blogging production falls off accordingly. Now that September is here, it is time to resume normal programming. Here is a quick round-up the Acceleware fall schedule of activities.

Occasionally, scientific images can be both enlightening and beautiful

During a seismic survey, each shot sends a wave propagating through the Earth, while receivers on the surface listen for reflections as that wave bounces off of geologic layers. Real-world geology can be extremely complex, and because of the different wave propagation velocities the of the different layers, the wave never expands in simple circles, like ripples in a pond. Instead it is scattered off of high-velocity contrasts, refracts around slower regions, is focused into beams.
