“These keynote invitations provide an excellent opportunity to share the cutting-edge work done at University of Houston with the international community,” Weglein said.

Weglein was awarded SEG’s highest honor and recognition, the Maurice Ewing Medal, in 2016. He received SEG’s Reginald Fessenden Medal in 2010 for his contributions to exploration seismology. In 2008, Weglein received the Townsend Harris Medal, the highest honor from CCNY/CUNY, and in 2003, he served as the SEG Distinguished Lecturer.

In January 2018, Weglein began serving as co-editor-in-chief, along with Nafi Toksoz of MIT, of the Journal of Seismic Exploration. He also co-authored a 2012 graduate textbook for Cambridge University Press with Bob Stolt.
