MARVEL is a complete, fully distributed seismic processing system that provides an integrated cluster-based system. It includes a full seismic processing monitor for seismic processing, imaging, and data synthesis. It can be used for velocity analysis, anisotropic parameter estimation, Earth model construction and 3D visualization. Each integrated module in MARVEL streams data through both local and broadband network channels. MARVEL automatically detects the available resources on each node and selects the optimum parallelization and efficiency strategies to maximize performance. MARVEL is a full 64-bit system and is available on a wide variety of platforms and operating systems, including Linux, Macintosh OS X, and SGI. It is optimized for speed and efficiency, and can run on Intel-based cluster systems and NVIDIA GPUs, and communicates over virtually all network implementations.
