1994 BP statics benchmark model
This dataset was created at the Amoco Tulsa Research Lab in 1994 by Mike O'Brien as part of a project to study methods for attacking statics in land data. The geology of the model is completely invented, not based on any specific play. It contains many different types of near-surface geology, generally representing geology thought to be responsible for statics. The model is 2D, purely acoustic, with a constant density. The model was used in two internal Amoco reports (F94-G-0059 and F95-G-0033) but was never published externally by Amoco. The model was released to a few academic institutions in the late 1990's. It is being released again in 2008 by popular request, courtesy of BP. Although synthetic, the model is so detailed that with the noticeable exception of lacking ground roll (since it's acoustic) it looks very much like "real data".
