These two papers are the results of work by two subcommittees of the Digital Standards Committee of the SEG. The first paper recommends standard digital tape formats for 9-track field recording of seismic data, and the second paper recommends a tape format to he used for the exchange of either field or processed data. These recommendations have a number of options to permit their acceptance by the industry. It is hoped that they will find general use by those who prefer 9-track formats. The universal use of these formats will permit a more efficient use of manpower and funds available to the industry with a resultant lowering of the cost of doing business.
These two papers should not be construed that the Committee prefers 9-track over 21-track tapes. The latter tape formats are already standardized and the Committee's efforts were directed toward the 9-track where there appeared to be a danger of proliferation of formats.
