WaveX: Extracting Wavelets from Seismic Data
Mathematica's powerful programming capabilities combined with the notebook interface proved to be an effective system for performing well ties and extracting the relative wavelet, among many other geophysically-related tasks. A significant amount of development was required to start operating in the data environment, but once targeted data import, export, and visualization functionality was available, the possibilities were limited only by the researcher's imagination.
The use of Mathematica has expanded into many areas in our company, including well log editing, residual velocity analysis, amplitude-versus-offset analysis, and other specialized uses, as well as report preparation for clients (via HTML export) and internal research. Mathematica has once again proven itself to be a powerful environment for technical computation.
