SEG adds ASEG's Exploration Geophysics and
Extended Abstracts to Digital Library collection

20 December 2013, Tulsa, Oklahoma—The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG) announce the release of ASEG's journal Exploration Geophysics and its Extended Abstracts in the SEG Digital Library.

Exploration Geophysics, a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal, started as ASEG Bulletin in 1970. The current name was adopted in 1981. Since 2012, it has been jointly published by ASEG, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists of Japan (SEGJ), and the Korean Society of Earth and Exploration Geophysicists (KSEG), and presents significant case histories, advances in data interpretation, and theoretical developments resulting from original research in exploration and applied geophysics. The SEG Digital Library is hosting all 44 volumes of the publication.

In addition to Exploration Geophysics, ASEG's Extended Abstracts from 2001 to 2013 are now available in the SEG Digital Library. The Extended Abstracts are papers presented during the technical program and keynote addresses of the ASEG conference series, occurring every 18 months. The twelve years of Extended Abstracts represent an arrival of more than 1,600 new papers to SEG's Digital Library. 

"ASEG, SEGJ, and KSEG are giving Exploration Geophysics and our society's meeting abstracts more exposure to geophysicists worldwide through their publication in the SEG Digital Library," said Koya Suto, ASEG president.

Access to the ASEG content is available free at through February 2014. Thereafter, SEG members will have access via their member logins. The ASEG Research Collection, including both Exploration Geophysics and the ASEG Extended Abstracts, are also available by institutional subscription.

"The ASEG archive is rich in mining geophysics papers while also presenting valuable scholarship in geophysical content related to oil-and-gas and near-surface problems," said Ted Bakamjian, SEG publications director. "SEG is pleased to facilitate greater exposure to and use of this valuable resource."
