The second issue of Interpretation, the new journal jointly published by SEG and AAPG, is in the final stages of preparation and will be available in November.

The journal will be free of charge and available online to all print recipients of the EXPLORER and The Leading Edge.

Complimentary print copies of the November issue are available by request only.

Interpretation is a peer-reviewed quarterly that comprises papers directly related to the practice of interpretation of the Earth’s subsurface for exploration and extraction of mineral resources, and for environmental and engineering applications.

The journal aims to accelerate innovation in interpretation. Former SEG Editor Yonghe Sun is the publication’s editor-in-chief; the deputy editor-in-chief is AAPG Honorary member R. Randy Ray, a consulting geophysicist-geologist in Denver and former editor of the EXPLORER’s Geophysical Corner.
