The Utah Consortium for Tomography Modeling/Migration Consortium (UTAM) at the University of Utah is under the direction of Professor Gerard Schuster. UTAM is a research and educational program based in the University's Department of Geology and Geophysics.

Sponsors are invited to UTAM's annual meeting in Houston in January, 2012 at which reports are shared with sponsors by faculty and students. These reports may include theses, research reports and papers, computer source code, and other publications of current or past years. Materials presented at the annual meeting, or otherwise published or provided to sponsors, may be copied and used by sponsors without restrictions. Such materials are available to members to support their own exploration activities. Members join on their own behalf and do not represent the interests of groups who are non-members.
