Following the 2004 SEG, Jill Lewis (Troika) is chairing a group investigating a revision to the SEG-D seismic data acquisition standard. The group is to investigate how SEG-D can adapt to modern media and various revisions to the SEG-D headers, trailer and channel descriptor. Another issue is whether an upgrade to SEG-D is the way to go, or whether a modern ‘SEG-E’ format should be drafted with XML for metadata, and random access for data stored on disk.
Troika has set up a reflector site for discussion of the possible new format and a meeting is planned at the 2005 Madrid EAGE. Interested parties can also sign up to a mailing list on email@example.com.
