In recent years a new data collection approach has been proposed for geophysical
exploration. Rather than recording data for each source separately, sources are shot
simultaneously and the combined data is recorded.
The question we answer in this talk is, what should be the pattern of shots in order
to optimally recover the earth's parameters.
To answer the question we use experimental design methodology and show how
to efficiently solve the resulting optimization problem
