Weglein Invited as Keynote Speaker for SEG/Kuwait Oil Company Three-Day Workshop

Workshop to Address Advances in Land & Shallow Marine Multiple Attenuation and Imaging

Arthur Weglein, the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair in Physics at University of Houston, is the invited keynote speaker for the 2023 Society of Exploration Geophysicists/Kuwait Oil Company Workshop on Advances in Land & Shallow Marine Multiple Attenuation and Imaging. The conference, scheduled for November 28-30, will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Arthur Weglein

Weglein, the founding director of the Mission-Oriented Seismic Research Program at UH, will provide expert analysis with his keynote address, “Recent Advances and Open Issues in Multiple Attenuation and Imaging, including Land and Shallow Marine” (abstact).

The presentation will be his third keynote at an SEG international conference or workshop in 2022/2023.

In March 2024, he will serve as keynote speaker in Rome at the Global Congress on Physics and Its Applications. He will deliver the address, “Advances in Fundamental Directed Seismic Physics Research: Translational Opportunities in Other Areas of Inverse Scattering/Target Identification.”

A frequent keynote speaker at international research and business conferences, Weglein’s previous presentations have covered a variety of topics, including 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, he received SEG’s highest honor and recognition, the Maurice Ewing Medal. SEG also presented the Reginald Fessenden Medal to Weglein in 2010 for his contributions to exploration seismology. In 2008, he received the Townsend Harris Medal, the highest honor from CCNY/CUNY. He served as the SEG Distinguished Lecturer in 2003.

Weglein has served as co-editor-in-chief, along with Nafi Toksoz of MIT, of the Journal of Seismic Exploration since 2018.
