The Edinburgh Interferometry Project (EIP) explores the exciting fields of seismic interferometry, imaging and monitoring of the Earth's subsurface, principally for applications within industry.

Over the past decade, wavefield interferometry has created many new methods and opportunities in seismics, seismology and electromagnetics. Important advances in imaging and monitoring theory and applications are made almost monthly in this dynamic field of research. The Edinburgh Interferometry Project explores and creates many of these advances, transfers them to sponsors organisations, publicises them to interested communities, and trains excellent students.

The fundamentals of interferometry span a broad range of disciplines, requiring expertise in mathematics, physics, wave theory, signal processing, exploration and earthquake seismology, modelling and imaging. EIP therefore includes researchers from a variety of backgrounds, and Ph.D. and postdoctoral positions are often available for the brightest students and researchers.

All research is fully funded by a consortium of industrial companies:
Schlumberger, Statoil and Total.
