Distinguished Lecture Program

Archive

Selection as a Distinguished Lecturer is viewed as a major honor and recognition of excellence by the SEG. In addition to recognizing an individual's contributions to the science or application of geophysics, this position is an active effort to promote geophysics, stimulate general scientific and professional interest, expand technical horizons, and provide a connection to SEG activities and practices.
