Welcome to the IQ Earth Community!
Creating a fundamental change in visualizing and predicting subsurface structure, rock and fluid properties; through quantitative subsurface integration.
In January 2010, SEG launched an innovative, new initiative to initiate concrete discussions to nurture the creation of a fundamental change in visualizing and predicting subsurface structure, rock and fluid properties; driven by renewed focus on multidisciplinary integration and the new quantitative earth model paradigm; applied by the next generation subsurface scientist.
This is a bold challenge to which most players in the petroleum industry aspire, and to various degrees are already addressing. Leading universities are also establishing multidisciplinary educational initiatives to enable the next generation of subsurface scientists. However, much more can be done - IQ Earth Measures of Success.
The initiative was kicked-off by a Forum held January 25-28, 2010 in Charleston, SC. The Forum was a critical first step toward a successful multi-year initiative, as the discussions from the forum will guide the future direction of the new SEG IQ Earth initiative.
