Solving the salt problem for seismic imaging

Automated imaging of underground salt bodies from seismic data could help streamline oil and gas exploration.


​The efficient extraction of oil and gas from within the Earth’s crust requires accurate images of subsurface rock structures. Some materials are hard to capture, so KAUST researchers have developed a computational method for modeling large accumulations of subsurface salt, a challenging material to derive accurately from seismic imaging data.
