Seismic Software Grant Received
Seismic Micro-Technologies Inc. has awarded the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) and the University of Illinois a software grant valued at $595,000. The Kingdom software allows the ISGS to interpret two- and three-dimensional seismic reflection data. The software will be used by the carbon sequestration project team to help plan optimum locations for new carbon sequestration projects. Additionally, it will be used to interpret approximately 30 miles of newly acquired seismic reflection data at the proposed Mattoon FutureGen site. The Kingdom software is also used for interpreting reflection seismic for characterizing shallow aquifers. The data obtained with this software also will be used in teaching students and interns how to interpret seismic reflection data.
