Geophysics 101

Dr. Leon ThomsenIn addition to the IHRDC eLearning courses below, SEG has also developed Geophysics 101, taught by renowned geophysicist Dr. Leon Thomsen.

Today's interactive technology has evolved to the point where software and web applications can present educational content in a format that adapts to the evolving skills and understanding of the student, allowing students to test their knowledge or navigate through course materials according to preference.

SEG seeks to provide the benefits of this technology to users across the globe. Through our partnership with the International Human Resources Development Corp., we have developed a full battery of eLearning courses, each approximately 1-8 hours in duration, that can be purchased online at affordable prices and completed with any standard computer equipment.
