reinvent seismic interpretation!

Join us for an exciting online course/workshop that will introduce you to the fascinating world of high visual resolution seismic interpretation! Whether you’re a student or have years of experience, this event is perfect for anyone interested in enhancing their understanding of seismic data.

During this course, Dr. Steven Lynch, the world’s foremost expert on seismic visualization, will provide valuable insights on the importance and applications of high visual resolution interpretation. You’ll learn about the latest virtual reality technologies and techniques used to analyze and extract meaningful geological information from seismic data.

Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your knowledge and gain valuable skills in the field of high visual resolution interpretation. Sign up for the course and join us online on the specified date and time to be a part of this revolutionary new field!

When you change the way you look at things … the things you look at change.

Max Planck

An introduction to high visual resolution interpretation

This is a 16 hour online course presented in four consecutive four hour sessions. Price: $1,500 USD

CEU: 1.5 PDH:16

Course description

The course is partly theoretical covering the fundamentals of visualization theory as it applies to seismic data. Mostly, however, it is a series of hands-on workshops where students will examine seismic from various basins around the world. Through these workshops students will learn the many advantages of high visual resolution interpretation and how to incorporate HVRI into their existing exploration projects and workflows.

The course is task and discussion oriented. Each day students will be challenged to think about seismic from a different perspective with a different theme in mind.

Day 1: What are we missing?

Day 2: Do we need to re-invent interpretation? 

Day 3: What did we forget to do?

Day 4: Returning context to seismic attributes.

By the end of the course, students will have gained a new appreciation for the capabilities of seismic data.

We provide a 100% refund for cancellations prior to 10 business days of the start of the course. We provide a 50% refund for cancellations between 5 and 9 business days from the start of the course and a 50% credit towards a future course. All refunds are minus a $50 USD processing fee.
The course uses the StratiScape software and students will be expected to download, install and register the software prior to the start of the course. The download location will be provided as will aid in installation and licensing.
The course uses a wide array of both 2D and 3D seismic data from various basins around the world. Students must download and install the surveys prior to the course start date. Download locations will be provided.
The data we provide is all in the public domain. We cannot use proprietary data for privacy reasons. If you know of public domain data in your region of interest we will try to use that in the course if practical.
You will need a computer with an NVidia GPU, a three button mouse, preferably two or three monitors and approximately 300 GB of free disk space for example data.
Course discussions and theoretical material are presented using Microsoft Teams. We prefer to use Discord for the live examinations of seismic because of its superior screen sharing. If it is not possible for students to use Discord we will revert back to Teams.
Yes we do. Please email us at for details.
We offer the course in time zones appropriate for North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East. If there is enough interest, we will also schedule the course for a requested time zone.
