Weglein to Give SEG Post-Convention Workshop Keynote

Workshop Session Covers “The Business Value of Multiple Identification and Removal —Status, Challenges, and Road Ahead”

Arthur Weglein, the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair in Physics at University of Houston, has been invited to give a keynote at a post-convention workshop for the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). The session will cover the “The Business Value of Multiple Identification and Removal – Status, Challenges, and Road Ahead.”

The post-convention workshop is part of SEG’s International Exposition and 88th Annual Meeting planned for October in Anaheim, California. SEG’s Annual Meeting is the world's largest oil, energy and mineral exposition showcasing cutting-edge technology for use in exploration and associated industries.

Weglein is also director of the Mission-Oriented Seismic Research Program (M-OSRP) at UH.

“This keynote invitation is recognition of the important leadership role that UH plays, and that research programs like M-OSRP provide, in the development and delivery of new and more effective seismic capability,” Weglein said.

The title of his presentation will be “A new and comprehensive perspective on the role of primaries and multiples in seismic data processing for structure determination and amplitude analysis.” (abstract and related paper).

Weglein was the SEG Distinguished Lecturer in 2003 and received the Townsend Harris Medal from CCNY/CUNY in 2008. He received SEG’s Reginald Fessenden Medal in 2010, for his contributions to exploration seismology. In 2016, he was awarded SEG’s highest honor and recognition, the Maurice Ewing Medal. He co-authored a graduate textbook for Cambridge University Press with Bob Stolt in 2012, and in January 2018 was selected to be Co-Editor-in-Chief (along with Nafi Toksoz of MIT) of the Journal of Seismic Exploration.
