Chapter 38. Imaging Earth’s Subsurface Using CUDA

Bernard Deschizeaux CGGVeritas

Jean-Yves Blanc CGGVeritas

Introduction

The main goal of earth exploration is to provide the oil and gas industry with knowledge of the earth’s subsurface structure to detect where oil can be found and recovered. To do so, large-scale seismic surveys of the earth are performed, and the data recorded undergoes complex iterative processing to extract a geological model of the earth. The data is then interpreted by experts to help decide where to build oil recovery infrastructure.

The state-of-the-art algorithms used in seismic data processing are evolving rapidly, and the need for computing power increases dramatically every year. For this reason, CGGVeritas has always ...
