Some thoughts on the design of software for geogphysical data processing , by Paul J. Fowler

Most seismic data processing is currently based on a data model of traces and trace headers. This model is probably too restrictive for further processing environments. Integration of seismic data with other forms of data in a more general database model would be more flexible and extensible. If data models are defined using a limited number of access and processing parameters, processing modules can be defined as realizations of generic filters. A limited standardization of data models in this fashion might also enable standardization of processors.
