Processed and interpreted seismic and non-seismic data from the demonstration site with methodology

The reprocessed data from the demonstration site show how careful attention to processing in particular the novel combination of deterministic deconvolution combined with robust multiple suppression yields an image from beneath basalt layers.

The final sections are reinterpreted in conjunction with other geophysical and geological information including gravity, magnetics and magneto-telluric data. Joint inversion and interpretation strategies have be developed and the relative contribution to the final interpretation of each type of data is presented.

The result will enable geoscientists to optimise data acquisition, processing, inversion and interpretation strategies for other areas with severe basalt layers worldwide. The exact processing and joint inversion strategies have been elaborated and validated using both 2- and 3-D synthetic data (see main project results 1 & 5 this document) as well as by using the real data obtained from the demonstration site.
