Innovation and Realism in LITHOPROBE's Approach
  • Contracting with industry for acquisition of seismic reflection and magnetotelluric (electromagnetic) data to take advantage of the latest technology
  • Successful encouragement of petroleum industry to record data for longer traveltimes and the donation of such data to LITHOPROBE
  • Establishment of LITHOPROBE Seismic Processing Facility (U. of Calgary) with a network of 8 remote Seismic Research Nodes to provide a national capability
  • Internal NSERC-style University Supporting Geocscience Projects competition to ensure the best and most relevant science is carried out
    • Approximately 20-25% of the annual LITHOPROBE budget goes to Supporting Geoscience Projects
  • Cost sharing with industry the acquisition costs of new, state-of-the-art aeromagnetic data
  • Promotion and facilitation of the availability of a common software package for scientists in electromagnetic studies
