Due to the current pandemic situation, the Delphi consortium had its delayed summer meeting from Dec 1-4 in a full online setting. In order to gain maximum audience, the meeting was limited to 3 hours per day, allowing attendance from East to West.
On April 15 2020 Shotaro Nakayama defended his PhD thesis entitled ‘Optimization of Blending and Spatial Sampling in Seismic Acquisition Design’ in front of the doctoral committee. His promotors were Dr. Gerrit Blacquière and prof. Kees Wapenaar.
February 18-21 we had the yearly Delphi meeting in Houston, in the OMNI hotel. Participants from the consortium members enjoyed a 4-day program. Despite some visa issues we had a team of 15 people present organizing and presenting the meeting.
Dear Delphi members, please find the three volumes of the Delphi reports online, that have also been distributed on the USB-sticks during the Delphi meetings in Houston and The Hague.Also our latest journal papers and PH.D. thesis are included there.
Besides aiming for conducting high-quality research we also strive to optimally bring these results to you. Currently, we give written reports (as PDFS), provide software releases and have twice a year our consortium meetings.
In the week of February 13-16, 2017 the Delphi team came with 19 persons to Houston to present their latest results. This year, we have chosen the OMNI hotel as the meeting location, being conveniently located close to the Energy Corridor.
The Delphi team looks back at a very successful sponsor meeting in The Hague last May. With a high attendance from the sponsors and four days of presentations and lots of discussions, we hope that this meeting was fruitful for our sponsors.
Utilization of Multiples in Velocity Estimation and Migration In the past the industry has made large investments in the removal of multiples from the seismic response ( ‘data linearization’ ), with the purpose to make the data suitable for our linear velocity estimation and linear migration algorithms.
We need a new scientific framework to handle the immense complexity of the global issues we are facing. A new Centre has been founded to develop this scientific framework and to create new solutions by a close integration of social and technological innovation.
