The SEISCOPE consortium is devoted to the investigation of high-resolution seismic imaging based on full waveform inversion. We focus more specifically on the frequency domain formulation of full-waveform inversion applied to wide-aperture/wide-azimuth (or global offset) acquisition geometrie

The first period of this consortium 2006-2008 has been devoted to the development and to the validation of numerical tools related to 2D and 3D seismic imaging as improved forward modelling and more efficient parallel inversion algorithms. We have the feeling that a second round is necessary in order to reach our scientific objectives.

The second period 2009-2011 is devoted to the validation of these new tools on both realistic synthetic and real data examples.

A proposal for a second round of the SEISCOPE consortium (SEISCOPE II - 2013-2018) has been submitted. Our sponsors can download the proposal from the restricted area. The proposal is available under request for potential new sponsors; please contact Jean Virieux (email: or Stéphane Operto (email:
