The Texas Consortium for Computational Seismology is a joint initiative of the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) and the Center for Numerical Analysis at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Science (ICES) at The University of Texas at Austin. Its mission is to address the most important and challenging research problems in computational geophysics as experienced by the energy industry while educating the next generation of research geophysicists and computational scientists.
Examples of research challenges include:
• Estimating seismic velocities by using full waveform information.
• Identifying the most accurate and the most efficient seismic imaging algorithms while controlling the trade-off between accuracy and efficiency.
• Assisting the seismic interpreter by automating common interpretation tasks.
