The Next Generation SEG/EAGE Model:
Where Are We and Where Are We Going?

Dr. J. Bee Bednar


Over the last 18 months a group of well-known geophysicists have expended considerable energy forming the foundation of a project to design and synthesize data over a new SEG/EAGE-style model. A complete status report detailing this effort was presented by a series of speakers at the November 2005 SEG meeting in Houston. In this talk, I will attempt to provide a summary of this status report. I will try to discuss the current design, algorithmic, computational, and business issues that must be solved in order for this effort to be successful.
