Skeletonization and Empirical-Mode Decomposition of 2-D Potential-field Images

Le Gao and Igor B. Morozov

The volumes of modern gridded data collected by the geophysical exploration industry are often large and can benefit from methods for image decomposition, pattern analysis, and interpretation. Automated pattern-recognition methods can be useful for both seismic and potential-field images. In both of these cases, it is important to extract quantitative… continue reading.

Mechanics of Seismic Q

Igor B. Morozov

Seismic- wave attenuation and dispersion are studied in most geophysical curricular and broadly used in both academic and applied research. Applications of these concepts include identification of gas reservoirs and chimneys from frequencydependent seismic amplitudes, analysis of frequency dependent P- and S-wave velocities, interpretation of the effects of porosity and… continue reading.

CCArray and EON-ROSE: Emerging Pan-Canadian Multidisciplinary Research Initiatives

David W. Eaton, Katherine Boggs, Thomas S. James, Jason C. Droboth, Pascal Audet

The Canadian Cordillera – the mountainous regions of western Canada – represents a world-class natural laboratory for exploring the interconnected Earth systems that are critical to our understanding of major scientific grand challenges. The Canadian Cordillera Array (CCArray) is a proposed international scientific initiative, spearheaded by the creation of a… continue reading.

Impact Craters in Seismic Data

Amanda Obodovsky

Since the acquisition of seismic data in the 1960’s, impact structures have been seen in seismic data. These are structures that were created earlier in the Earth’s history from a meteorite impact and have since been buried underground. While many of these unique structures are known to be located in… continue reading.

Airborne EM: Peace Project, British Columbia, Canada

Melvyn Best, Anne-Sophie Høyer, Flemming Jørgensen, Antonio Menghini, Carlos Salas, Andrea Viezzoli

Over the last decade, Airborne Electromagnetics (AEM) has become a widespread tool for groundwater applications. Besides the demand of acquiring good quality AEM data, there are two other fundamental steps to obtain a robust geological and hydrogeological model: accurate processing/inversions and advanced interpretation.
