Warner College receives $1 million in geosciences software

July 18, 2011

The Warner College of Natural Resources has received a professional-grade geosciences software gift valued at $1 million from Seismic Micro-Technology Inc. for the company's Kingdom Suite Software.

Software will enable students to study rocks beneath the earth's surface. Kingdom Suite Software, which is widely used in the petroleum industry, integrates seismic and well data into geological models that form the basis for exploration strategies.

The donation of a three-year license for the software will allow the Warner College to continue training and teaching students state-of-the-art methods in geosciences. The software will primarily be used in Professor Dennis Harry’s Subsurface Geophysical Mapping course as well as by graduate students completing thesis research.

Training future geoscientists

The software will enable students to better probe the earth’s interior, which in turn will allow them to view and interpret three-dimensional seismic images of the rocks beneath the earth’s surface, Harry said.

“This gift provides our students an opportunity to work with the same tools that many of them will use during their careers, which I think contributes to CSU's strong record of job placement among our geosciences graduates. We are grateful that Seismic Micro-Technology Inc. continues to invest in the future of our students,” Harry said.
