DiSECCS Seismic Toolbox

Dataset description

EPSRC project EP/K035878/1 - The DiSECCS seismic analysis toolbox comprises a series of codes which implement various algorithms for analysing post-stack seismic data acquired as part of a geological carbon sequestration monitoring programme. The tools focus on determining the thickness, saturation distribution and physical properties of CO2 layers imaged on seismic data. The toolbox also contains a number of new rock physics models developed as part of the DiSECCS project in the form of Mathematica notebooks.

Lineage statement The dataset comprises a series of computer codes written through the duration of the DiSECCS project. The codes were largely written in ANSI C and Mathematica by researchers from the British Geological Survey and the University of Edinburgh. The codes were tested on synthetic signals and real data from the Sleipner and Snohvit CO2 injection operations.
Supplementary information To use the spectral decomposition and Q estimation codes included in the toolbox, the Centre for Wave Phenomena Seismic Unix package (CWPSU) from Colorado School of Mines must also be installed. Seismic Unix can be downloaded from http://www.cwp.mines.edu/cwpcodes/ and compiled on any UNIX-like operating system with working C and FORTRAN-90 compilers. Seismic Unix can also be installed under CYGWIN on a windows based system. To install the codes the user must first set two environment variables pointing to the top-level directory(s) containing the Seismic Unix distribution and DiSECCS toolkit.
