SeaSeis is an open-source seismic data processing system primarily intended for geophysicists (geophysicist by mindset, not necessarily education).
SeaSeis is a sequential trace flow system. It follows the same basic concept as most commercial seismic processing systems.
NEWS (2 June 2012)
- New version v1.92 on Download page:
- Bug fixes to SEGD reader
- Updates to build scripts
- Updates to flow builder prototype
- 16bit compressed data format
What SeaSeis consists of
- Command line submission tool
- Processing flow parser (ASCII text file)
- 'Base' system managing the trace flow, including flow branching, and internal memory allocation
- At the moment 79 processing modules, each including a short online documentation
- Interactive 2D seismic viewer
- Example flows
What SeaSeis is NOT
- SeaSeis is NOT equipped with all standard seismic processing tools:
SeaSeis has currently only a limited number of processing modules. The module base is most complete for onboard QC processing, in particular for seabed seismic data processing. SeaSeis provides a thoroughly tested and stable base system in which new modules can be easily added into.
- SeaSeis was NOT written by an IT expert, or Geophysics guru:
SeaSeis was written by a user frustrated by inefficient, complicated, defect, or overly expensive processing systems. Thus, it lacks shiny examples of super-modern information technology, or extremely complex geophysical algorithms and methods.
- SeaSeis is NOT highly efficient on the computer hardware:
SeaSeis is intended to be highly efficient mainly for the user, not for the CPU. The lack of a GUI frontend currently hampers its usability somewhat, but this should not scare off users who are good at the keyboard and on the command line.
