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.
