The University of Barcelona Marine Geosciences Group renews its agreement to use a leading geophysical exploration program

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.
