Colin Sayers from Schlumberger will give the EGLS talk this Friday Feb 3rd

Colin Sayers from Schlumberger will be giving a talk on Friday Feb 03 titled:

"Gas shales: a geomechanics and rock physics perspective"

Dr. Sayers is Scientific Advisor for Schlumberger's Data & Consulting Services Geomechanics Group in Houston. He was selected by the SEG to give the 2010 Distinguished Instructor Short Course, "Geomechanical applications of seismic and borehole acoustic waves".

Dr. Sayers is also the newest addition to our geophysics department as Adjunct Professor! He will begin teaching classes in Fall 2012.

Tad Smith from Apache will give the EGLS talk this Friday Jan 27th

Tad Smith from Apache will be giving a talk on Friday Jan 27 titled:

Fred Hilterman from Geokinetics and UH will give the EGLS talk this Friday Jan 20th

Fred Hilterman from UH and Geokinetics will be giving a talk on Friday Jan 20 titled:

"Pore-fluid quantification: Unconsolidated versus consolidated sediments"

Dr. Hilterman is Chief Scientist at Geokinetics and Distinguished Research Professor at UH. He was selected by the SEG to give the 2001 SEG DISC "Seismic Amplitude Interpretation", a compressed version of his UH course "3D Seismic Exploration II". He was also SEG President in 1996-97.

Calendar Updated with GSH Events

Recently Sofia Campbell (Executive Recruiter - Energy Professional Search) emailed us to remind the students about the upcoming Geophysical Society of Houston (GSH) events and that the technical lunches are FREE for students. If you are not a member yet, please sign up with the GSH (www.gshtx.org) as soon as possible. These events are always insightful and a chance to keep up to date with ground breaking geophysics happening here in Houston. Also, these events are a great place to network and meet people in the industry.

2nd Annual Holiday Banquet is a Success!

About the Event

Prof. Chris Liner will give a "dress-rehearsal" of his 2012 SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course, "Elements of Seismic Dispersion", on campus Jan 28

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REGISTER ARE BELOW

As most of you may know, our own Prof. Chris Liner has been selected by the SEG to give the 2012 Distinguished Instructor Short Course touring around the world for the rest of the year. Dr. Liner has agreed to start off his worldwide tour at the University of Houston. The course will be titled:

"Elements of Seismic Dispersion: A somewhat practical guide to frequency-dependent phenomena"

Arthur Cheng from Halliburton will give the EGLS talk this Friday Nov 18th

Arthur Cheng from Halliburton will be giving a talk on Friday Nov 18 titled:

"How to measure seismic anisotropy from borehole measurements"

Dr. Cheng is Senior Manager of Acoustic/Seismic Borehole Technology at Halliburton. Previously, he was Vice President of Research at Rock Solid Images. Dr. Cheng obtained his PhD from MIT studying under Prof. M. Nafi Toksöz. Dr. Cheng served as Vice President of the SEG and Associate Editor of Geophysics.

SEG Wavelets raised $425 for the MS Walk.

A big thank you to everyone who donated to our box in the Geoscience office for our MS Walk fundraising efforts, and especially to Lisa Buckner and Hess and Allen Bertagne of BRT Energy for their generous support.  We gathered early on the UH campus and did the 5K circuit through the campus in support of everyone out there who is fighting the battle against Multiple Sclerosis.  It was a good morning and we hope that our efforts help to find a cure.
