Description:Geocluster (GCT) : Seismic reservoir characterisation and earth modelling software
Abstract:Geocluster is the standard processing software used by Compagnie Générale de Géophysique Veritas (CGGVeritas) for its business and also by several Research Institutes across the world, in both industrial R&D and academic environments such as Lausanne UNIL (CH), University Watt (UK), Khantymansiysk Yugra (Russia), Trondheim University (Norway), and several in France (CNRS/INSU, IFP, Ifremer, etc.). Geocluster covers all the steps from data-preconditioning, first arrival picking, refraction statics, signal processing, velocity analysis, dip move out and migration, and include the state of the art geophysical algorithms for seismic processing. Researchers have the possibility to develop their own modules (Fortran 90) and to use them in any workflow.
This application is a batch, mono cpu process but can also trigger parallel algorithms as standalones. Main issues concerning the grid version are currently on the management of the environment: a ”job” is a set of input and output seismic data, binary executables, parameter files, scripts and log information. All these components may go through various grid nodes (e.g. seismic data from a database node, software from a ”service provider” node, parameter/results from/to user node and the computing on standard working nodes).
