Two lines of 2D seismic data were recorded in January 2018 from the Late Jurassic (Late Kimmeridgian) Jubaila Fm outcrop – Wadi Laban, Central Saudi Arabia. The main objective of this dataset is to complement near-surface well logs with meter-scale geophysical images for multi-scale geophysical characterization analog of microporous carbonate in the Jubaila Fm. The length of each line is 600 m. The survey consists of 120 shots with a ~5 m shot interval. The receivers are 120 vertical P-wave geophones with a ~5 m interval planted directly on hard limestone rock by hand drills. The seismic source is a 750 kg accelerated weight drop mounted on a 6 × 6 All-Terrain Vehicle. The recording length for all lines was 600 ms with a 0.5 ms sampling interval. The data is sorted as shot gather in SEGY format with the receiver and shot coordinates provided as Excel spreadsheets. A pdf file summarizing the processing steps and one example of the processed line in SEGY format is provided as an example.
