UBC project in seismic imaging technology receives government, industry support

A new five-year, $5 million government- and industry-funded project at UBC will see researchers in the departments of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Computer Science and Mathematics designing the next generation of seismic imaging technology. 

The dynamic nonlinear optimization for imaging in seismic exploration (DNOISE II) project received funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada this October, and matching support from industry partners including BG Group, BP, Chevron,  ConocoPhillips, PetroBras, Total SA and WesternGeco. 

The interdisciplinary project involves researchers from across UBC science programs including Michael Friedlander (Computer Science), Ozgur Yilmaz (Mathematics) and Herrmann (Earth and Ocean Sciences). Much of the funding will provide research support for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
