A Canadian overthrust synthetic dataset prepared by Sam Gray and Gary Maclean, using John Etgen's finite-difference code. It was created for the CSEG paper "Migration from topography: improving the near-surface image". This data was widely circulated among Canadian contractor companies in the mid 1990's.
- Number of shots: 277 shots
- Number of traces per shot: 480 traces per shot record
- Geometry: Split-spread
- Group interval: 15 m
- Shot interval: 90 m
- Offsets: -3600 m to 3600 m for all shots except roll-in and roll-out
- First shot point and first group at location: 1
- First trace of the velocity model is also at location: 1
