Background

During the 1990s Dr. Robert S. Yeats of the Oregon State University Department of Geosciences obtained paper prints of oil industry exploration seismic profiles and shot-point maps from industry sources. These data were analyzed by his graduate students and incorporated into their theses and several publications (Yeats and others, 1996, Werner, 1990; Graven, 1990; Popowski, 1995). Dr. Yeats subsequently obtained permission to release the images and donated the printed copies to the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries with the understanding that they would eventually be published. DOGAMI has scanned the prints as high-resolution (250 dpi) .tif images and has prepared simple index maps showing the extents of the lines and shotpoint maps. This publication provides the map and profile images and the index maps “as is.” Information about seismic acquisition parameters must be inferred from the images by the user. DOGAMI has no information about these seismic images beyond the content of this publication.
