  1. Vermeer, G., and K. Hornman, 2020, Letter to the Editor on: Design, modelling and imaging of marine seismic swarm surveys by E. Muyzert, Geophysical Prospecting 66, 1535–1547: Geophysical Prospecting, 68, 1718-1720. Our Letter is followed by a reply by E. Muyzert. In the reply it turns out that the author had used a shot interval of 25 m as opposed to a shot interval of 53.7 m in the Atlantis survey. This was not mentioned in the original paper and makes his comparison of the two acquisition methods a bit shaky.

Vermeer, Gijs J.O., 2020, Are carpet geometries the way to go?: First Break, 38, May, 33-41. https://doi.org/10.3997/1365-2397.fb2020032 The best way to increase trace density is by decreasing binsize to ensure aliasfree sampling of the basic subsets of the geometry; only when this is satisfied trace density (and quality) can be further increased by decreasing the size of the unit cell of the geometry.

For the workshop ‘3D Seismic surveys: design, tests and experience’ held at the 61st EAGE Conference on 5 June 1999, five specialists in the design of 3D surveys were invited to recommend survey design parameters, based on a common case study. Participants were Mike Galbraith (Seismic Image Software), Malcolm Lansley (Western Geophysical), Julien Meunier (CGG), David Monk (Apache Corporation) and Jim Musser (Green Mountain Geophysics). Their recommendations are reproduced in the articles following the introductory paper. (20 years after, this link is added here; interesting to see how far we were in those days.)
