CGDMS Series: Seismic Data Processing Explained The Calgary Geoscience Data Managers Society (CGDMS) online tutorials overview: Seismic data processing is often seen as confusing with a lot of technical terms and procedures that are not as readily understood as they could be. Through an online series of brief, explanatory tutorials (conceptual not mathematical), Jason Noble (Headwaters Seismic Processing) will provide an explanation of what the various steps in a processing flow and what they do to the data. The CGDMS thanks Sigma Exploration for providing their proprietary datasets for the purpose of these sessions! Each online tutorial is planned for 20-30 minutes with a Q&A session to follow. Sessions are being recorded and the link to the recorded sessions can be found on the CGDMS website under Resources\Workshops and Education. Please become a member of the CGDMS – it is free and is open to all who are interested in Petroleum data. Go to to join.
