The seismic data files are binary encoded and cannot be viewed directly. The best way to download these files is to open the segy folder, select the SEG Y files you wish to download, and drag and drop these files onto your hard drive or use the File > Copy command.

The SEG Y formatted trace files have a .sgy extension. A detailed description of the data format can be found at http://www.seg.org/publications/tech-stand.

NOTE: These files may be large. The SEG Y files for 14BIM05 range in size from 3 to 110 MB.
