José M. Carcione

José M. Carcione was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1953. He received the degree Licenciado in Ciencias Físicas from Buenos Aires University in 1978, the degree Dottore in Física from Milan University in 1984, and the Ph.D in geophysics from Tel-Aviv University in 1987. From 1978 to 1980 he worked at the Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica at Buenos Aires. From 1981 to 1987 he was employed as a research geophysicist at Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales, the national oil company of Argentina. Presently, he is a senior geophysicist at the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS), formerly Osservatorio Geofisico Sperimentale in Trieste. He was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt scholarship for a postdoc at Hamburg University, where he stayed from 1987 to 1989. In 2007, he received the Anstey award at the EAGE in London. José Carcione has published more than 160 journal articles on acoustic and electromagnetic numerical modeling, with applications to oil exploration and environmental geophysics. He is the author of the book Wave fields in Real Media – Theory and numerical simulation of wave propagation in anisotropic, anelastic, porous and electromagnetic media (Pergamon Press, 2001; Elsevier Science, 2007) and co-author of Arqueo-geofísica: Una metodología interdisciplinaria para explorar el pasado (Fundación de Historia Natural, 2006). He has been an editor of Geophysics since 1999.
