As both the amount of acquired data and the power of computers continue to increase exponentially, there is a natural demand for higher exploration precision. Acknowledging the complexity and richness of subsurface media properties is one way to attain accurate modeling and imaging.

Gali Dekel, Emerson E&P Software Product Manager for Paradigm GeoDepth™ and EarthStudy 360™, describes how the recent Paradigm™ 18 release from Emerson E&P Software offers an enhanced orthorhombic workflow that enables highest-precision velocity modeling. Click here for more.
