April TLE: Offshore technology
TLE cover The April issue of The Leading Edge has a special section about offshore technology which emphasized the emerging role of reverse time migration. Read about those chosen for the Honors and Awards given at the 2008 Annual Meeting.

Geophysics: Rainbow in the Earth
The March–April issue of Geophysics includes a special section on Rainbow in the Earth, focusing on scale-frequency phenomena. Thirteen papers were assembled, representing a selection of notable contributions to three recent meetings that brought together scientists from a diverse range of disciplines for a discussion around a common theme of scale and frequency dependence of geophysical properties.

EAGE/SEG Research Workshop 2009 call for papers
The EAGE/SEG Research Workshop Frequency attenuation and resolution of seismic data," will be held in Boltaña, Spain, 14–17 September 2009. Submit your paper on any of the event’s topics before 19 April.
