Following the 2012 SEG Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, the SEG Research Committee sponsored a post-convention research workshop on subsea technologies, in general, and on seafloor characterization in particular. The goal of the workshop was to share experiences in acquisition, processing and applications of geotechnical and geophysical measurements for seafloor property characterization. This includes:

To help geophysicists in better understanding geotechnical seafloor measurements, e.g., when and how they are collected as well as their actual field applications; To help geotechnical specialists in better understanding geophysical seafloor measurements, how they are derived, and their importance for accurate seismic waveform modeling and inversion; To discuss technology and application trends, and how the geophysical community can participate in the fast-growing market for subsea operations in the oil and gas industry.
