Energy: Hydrocarbon Exploration

In this project, the goal is to identify boundaries between different types of underground rocks using seismic sensors. Such boundaries are of interest in hydrocarbon exploration as they are places where oil is often present. These sensors produce massive streams of data that need to be mined to understand the location of boundaries. Researchers are working these mining algorithms, as well as advanced compression and encoding techniques to compactly summarize these data streams.
