Datasets and Resources for Computational Seismic Interpretation

Common Geophysical Datasets

CSIdatasetHigh-quality seismic data is essential for accurate subsurface interpretation with vast applications to both industrial applications (e.g., oil & gas exploration) and environmental studies (e.g., earthquake monitoring and CO2 storage). Driven by the oil and gas industry, 3D seismic data has been widely collected around the world in the past few decades, particularly in the areas with great hydrocarbon potentials, such as the North Sea, the Middle East, and the Gulf of Mexico. Such data is often confidential during the initial stage of reservoir exploration and production, but is then released for public usage when the production goal has been achieved. Here, we list seven seismic datasets that are commonly used for developing and testing CSI algorithms. All of them are available in the typical SEG-Y format, which can be loaded directly using any geophysical exploration software (e.g., OpendTect and Petrel) or popular programming packages such as MATLAB and Python.
