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.

Geophysical Books in the Grad Office

On the shelf in the Geophysics graduate office on the first floor of SR1 is a small compilation of geophysics related books that are available to use.  These books were donated by Marathon Oil and the Hilterman/SEG Foundation.  We are working on geting more references for students to help with their research and geophysics studies.  Again, these are freely available to use, but please return promptly and do not remove them from UH campus so others can also use them.  Below is a list of the books available as of 10/13/2011.

PGS is one of the SEG Wavelets' sponsors

Many thanks to UH alum Jason Jonas and PGS for sponsoring some of the activities that we have planned for the 2011-2012 school year, including our Holiday Banquet, Field Day, Spring Exploration Geophysics Lecture Series and UH Spring Departmental Picnic.

SEG Wavelets are walking to fight MS!

The SEG Wavelets have a team for the 2011 MS Walk and we want YOU to join us!  This event is a great opportunity for us to get out in the community, fundraise for a great cause, and get in a little exercise!  Join our team - SEG Wavelets - on the walk website.  It is free to register.  Anyone can participate because there are two options:  a 1 mile walk or a 5K walk.  I set a goal for the team to raise $700, but I am sure we can do more.  Please join us, or if you can't, go to the website and donate for a great cause.  Hope to see you there!
