Information for Oil Companies

We hope that the hydrocarbon industry will routinely copy the water-layer part of new deep water reflection datasets to an international database that can be accessed by academic ocean and climate researchers. Such a strategy would greatly benefit society at minimal additional cost to industry. Confidentiality would not be a problem as the industry is not interested in the water layer and this can be almost automatically stripped from field data as part of a conventional processing flow.

The second policy change to be adopted by industry when acquiring data in deep water is to routinely deploy inexpensive expendable oceanographic probes to measure conductivity, temperature and salinity.
