SCAN 2D seismic data


Since 2018 TNO and EBN jointly carry out the multiyear research program Seismische Campagne Aardwarmte Nederland, in short SCAN. The results of the SCAN project allow a better estimation of where in the Dutch subsurface there is potential for geothermal heat production. The main projects of the SCAN program concern seismic data acquisition in the field with modern techniques and the re-processing of existing seismic data of the Dutch subsurface. In the acquisition and reprocessing of data  an emphasis is placed on areas with a low data density.  By combining and further study of the results obtained from these projects, the knowledge on our subsurface is further increased. More information on the SCAN program can be obtained via the website, whereas via the following NLOG-page all research data and final results of the different studies within SCAN are published.

Following the acquisition of new seismic data in the field, the resulting field data is processed into a seismic section. With regards to reprocessing of existing seismic data, old field data is checked and processed into a new seismic section using modern techniques. For lines for which the process is completed, both the final processed seismic section and the availability of the field data are published below. The following document gives an overview of the data that becomes available from all SCAN-projects. These seismic sections can be viewed in free viewers such as Seisee or SeismiGraphix. An overview of the ongoing and planned activities within the project can be found on

Newly Acquired Seismic Data


For the lines below acquired data is available from SCAN or from related activities (such as those for the Program on Ultradeep Geothermal Energy). The locations of the lines can be seen via the following webpage.


The final results of the newly acquired seismic data are the processed seismic sections with velocities and processing report. These can be downloaded from the table below. The field data for all lines listed in the table below can be requested by contacting the Servicedesk, unless it has been indicated that the field data is not yet available. TNO charges a service fee for the handling of the request and final delivery of the field data is via a file transfer service.

Acquisition Parameters

As part of the acquisition of new seismic data of the subsurface for SCAN, a test line of approx. 29 km between Utrecht and Almere has been recorded in 2019. With the Test Line is determined how to efficiently manage and perform the new acquisition. The test line partially overlaps with the NAM-DEEP line, this one of the few existing seismic lines with the specific purpose to acquire data of the deep subsurface. The aim of the SCAN test line was to gather data of at least a comparable quality. This goal has been achieved: the test line is of very good quality and the deep layers are visible.

In total, 1355 shots were registered with 5817 channels per shot and an offset ranging from 10 meters to 10’s of kilometers. Data was recorded by vertical single geophones spaced 5 meters apart with a 2 millisecond sample interval and a record length of 20 seconds (10001 samples per trace).

With the applied long offset 2D seismics it is expected that it is possible to look deeper in the subsurface compared to industry standard techniques.

These lines originate from six seismic surveys from the 1980s conducted by Mobil, and from a 1974 NAM survey. The original data has been reprocessed and the resulting seismic sections are available for download in the table below.


Work package GTO-19-C033-02
This work package consists of 51 lines from seismic surveys acquired in the provinces of Utrecht, Flevoland and Gelderland. It comprises a total of approximately 774 kilometers of reprocessed data averaging at 15 kilometers per line. The lines are from seismic surveys conducted by Petroland in the 1980s. The original field data has been reprocessed and the resulting seismic sections are available below.


Apart from the seismic data available for download in the table below. The field data has been checked and reconstructed during reprocessing and can be requested by contacting the Servicedesk.
