Interpretation special sections

SEG's latest quarterly issued journal: Interpretation

Interpretation is a peer-reviewed journal copublished by SEG and AAPG to advance the practice of subsurface interpretation. Papers will be published online as they are accepted, edited, and composed, with issues printed quarterly in February, May, August, and November. Each issue contains at least one special section covering a topic of interest to interpreters. General submissions also are welcome in addition to submissions targeted to the topics below.
