Madagascar School on Reproducible Computational Geophysics


Day 1 Friday, June 12
9:00-12:00 Madagascar as a framework for reproducible research

Madagascar provides a complete environment for organizing one's research, from new software development to running computational experiments to publishing the experimental results in papers and reports and archiving them for future usage. This shared environment enables an efficient exchange of research results with colleagues and sponsors. In this module, you will learn how to take the full advantage of the Madagascar environment to enhance research productivity and research collaboration.

13:00-16:00 Seismic interpretation (via OpendTect and Madagascar)
Day 2 Saturday, June 13
9:00-12:00 Wavefield seismic imaging

The theoretical part of this module provides an overview of reverse-time imaging methodology applied to wavefield seismic data. The main technique discussed is reverse-time migration with emphasis on modern imaging conditions which enable migration velocity analysis and amplitude-versus-angle analysis. The applied part demonstrates this technique on a complex geologic model using Madagascar codes in a fully reproducible setup.

13:00-16:00 Seismic interferometry
