Mama Etna is back!

And to our fortune he’s quite keen on photography and shares these gems on various platforms. The latest paroxysm produced a very special event: That moment, […]

Under Pressure – Multi-component seismic acquisition

Imaging the subsurface has become more and more complex. If we want to get a state-of-the-art image we might consider a slanted multi-component streamer acquisition and process it with a full waveform inversion to finish it off with a nice pre-stack Gaussian beam migration. Yeah… Even as a geophysics master student this is some tough […]
