The group's 25 scientists have expertise profiles in geophysics, geology, signal/image processing, applied mathematics, and computer science. Close proximity to the important North Sea market and to Schlumberger's substantial Norwegian software activity ensures quick time-to-market. SSR has been active in geological CO2 storage for several years, and considers CO2 monitoring and flow modelling technologies key research directions.
