Weglein Presents Keynote at 2022 SEG Qingdao International Conference on Seismic Imaging

Presentation Covered Role of Primaries and Multiples in Seismic Imaging and Inversion

Arthur Weglein, the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair in Physics at University of Houston, served as a keynote speaker at the 2022 Society of Exploration Geophysicists Qingdao International Conference on Seismic Imaging: Progress and the Way Ahead. The conference was held December 3-4 in Qingdao, China. Weglein’s keynote was delivered virtually as part of the conference’s China 111 Workshop.

Weglein, the founding director of the Mission-Oriented Seismic Research Program at UH, provided a comprehensive analysis and perspective through his talk entitled “The Role of Primaries and Multiples in Seismic Imaging and Inversion.”

The presentation was his second keynote at an SEG international conference or workshop in 2022. In September, he served as keynote for the post-convention workshop on “FWI/FWM and New Seismic Imaging Concepts and Capability” for the SEG International Meeting for Applied Geoscience and Energy held in Houston.

A frequent keynote speaker at international research and business conferences, Weglein’s previous presentations have covered topics such as on-shore challenges, primaries and multiples in seismic processing, defining and addressing seismic challenges in petroleum exploration and production, and potential game-changing seismic research, seismic migration and inversion.

In 2016, Weglein was awarded SEG’s highest honor and recognition, the Maurice Ewing Medal. 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.
