floppy disks) of data with computation requirements that exceed 10 floating point operations. A high end personal computer would require hundreds of years to deliver that many computations. As might be imagined, the processing of such seismic data sets places a great demand on the petroleum industry’s high performance computing capacity. Seismic data processing, however, is ideally suited for parallel computations. Several of the processing tasks are trivial to parallelize. These generally need… CONTINUE READING
