About us

Welcome to the home page of the SIAM Graduate Student Chapter (SIA&M) at Texas A&M University in College Station. The purpose of this organization is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration among graduate students, to provide a platform where graduate students can practice and improve their presentation skills, and to facilitate interactions among graduate students and faculty both inside the Mathematics department as well as with other Science and Engineering departments.

The main activity of SIA&M is co-organizing the Industrial and Applied MathSeminar.

We also host a Social Event every month.

Title: Recent Advances in Seismic Imaging

Time / Date: 4-5 PM Monday, April 10

Location: Blocker 220

Abstract: Seismic imaging is the major technique to obtain subsurface structural information for natural resource exploration. A typical seismic imaging work flow consists of seismic data acquisition, signal processing, velocity model building, imaging, and post-imaging processing. Each part of the flow evolves along with the fast development of engineering and computing technology. This presentation will introduce four advanced imaging techniques in the industry, which are recently matured thanks to the increase of computing power. They are surface related multiple attenuation (SRME), imaging in anisotropic velocities, full wave inversion (FWI), and least-squares reverse time migration (LSRTM). Even with these advanced techniques, there are always limitations and room for improvement in every side. Innovation and progress are highly desired especially in this period of low oil prices.
