The KINGDOM Suite, designed by Seismic Micro-Technology, is a leading industrial software application for the 2D and 3D interpretation of seismic reflection data on the Windows platform that offers advanced visualization and modelling capabilities based on synthetic seismograms. This software has enormous potential for application in graduate and post-graduate education as it allows students to acquire knowledge that is considered essential in the petroleum industry and related services. The software, with a commercial value of $270,000, is leased to the University as part of the Educational Gift Program run by Seismic Micro-Technology.
The KINGDOM Suite will initially be used in the Marine Geology course as part of the Honours Degree in Geology and the doctoral course “Deep-sea sedimentary processes and products” as part of the Earth Sciences and Marine Sciences programs. The software will also be used in the research projects and doctoral theses currently being developed by the Marine Geosciences Research Group for the interpretation of seismic data from continental margins in the Western Mediterranean, the Northwest Atlantic and Antarctica. These projects focus on the study of submarine landslides, deep-sea depositional systems, submarine canyons and channels and deeply submerged carbonate banks, within a framework of seismic and sequential stratigraphy. The availability of the KINGDOM Suite makes the University of Barcelona Marine Geosciences Research Group one of the leading and most innovative European research groups in the field of Marine Geosciences teaching and research.

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...
Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.
A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
