ISIS: An Interactive Seismic ImagingSystem


The design goals and a prototype multicomputer implementation of an Interactive Seismic Imaging System (ISIS)  are presented. The purpose of this system is to change the manner in which images of the subsurface are developed, by allowing the geologist/analyst to interactively observe the effects of changing focusing parameters, such as velocity. This technique leads to improved images and, perhaps more importantly, to an understanding of their accuracy.
