Creation of Backscatter Working Group

Geohab is putting together a Working Group on Backscatter Data Acquisition and Processing. This was one of the main recommentations of the workshop on 'Multibeam Backscatter – State of Technology, Tools and Techniques' which was held on 5 May 2013 in Rome, Italy. During this workshop, the need for standardisation of the acquisition and processing backscatter caused by multibeam echo sounders was expressed. The purpose of the Working Group is to discuss and propose a series of best practices or standards for acquisition and processing of multibeam sonar backscatter data, and to prepare a set of guidelines. Recommendations will also... (read more)

Finnmark Platform 3D Multi-client Project Started

Dolphin Geophysical, in partnership with Searcher Seismic, is executing the 1,407 sq km non-exclusive 3D MC seismic project on the Finnmark Platform, Barents Sea, Norway. Processing has commenced in Dolphin's UK Centre using its proprietary OpenCPS software. The processing sequence has been designed to enhance the imaging of the primary Jurassic targets located at around 1sec TWT. The processing will also focus on providing improved definition of the deeper Triassic and Permian Clastics. A full suite of deliverables will be produced during the processing. With planned infrastructure in Veidnes outside Honningsvåg in Finnmark announced by Statoil, the survey area is... (read more)
