The Barcelona Center for Subsurface Imaging (Barcelona-CSI) has arisen from the affinity of scientific and technological goals of members of the Marine Sciences Institute (ICM-CSIC), Marine Technology Unit (UTM-CSIC) and Earth Sciences Institute Jaume Almera (ICTJA-CSIC), all from the Spanish Research Council (CSIC).

The Barcelona-CSI has as two main goals to develop advanced geophysical methods to provide images and physical properties of the subsurface structure, and the use of state-of-the-art geophysical tools to study geological processes.

The work at the Barcelona-CSI is funded by research project financed by national and European agencies as well as by industry contracts. It is worth mentioning the close collaboration with the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) within the Kaleidoscope project of REPSOL.
