Welcome to A3Mark

Seismic attribute computation is one of the most active research and engineering topics in the computational geophysics world. Although numerous algorithms for seismic attribute computation have been developed, relatively little work has been done on scientifically characterizing their quality and accuracy. Here, we present a robust and reliable scientific process to functionally compare similar attributes. Our goal is to scientifically guide seismic attribute consumer choices.
This website accompanies our papers [1][2]. A simple recipe on how to perform the A3Mark benchmark of attributes is as follows:
  • Download the train and test datasets.
  • Generate the seismic attribute cubes on the downloaded datasets using existing or new seismic attribute algorithms.
  • Upload your generated seismic attribute cubes through submission page to our framework.
  • Evaluation results in numerical metrics and visual figures will be presented in evaluation page automatically.
