Alistair R. Brown
AAPG and SEG have announced the inaugural AAPG-SEG Distinguished Lecture as part of the 1999-2000 speaker season.
Dallas consulting reservoir geophysicist Alistair R. Brown will be the first presenter of this one-hour lecture series, speaking on "Let the Data Speak to You: How to Improve Your 3-D Seismic Interpretation."
This is an intersociety project to promote cooperation among the local SEG geophysical sections and AAPG geological societies, and to strengthen the integration of diverse technical disciplines.
The lecture will be presented in North America during a total of four weeks, starting in October and concluding in March.
His October schedule is:
- Oct. 18 -- Fort Worth Geological Society.
- Oct. 19 -- RMAG, in conjunction with the Denver Geophysical Section.
- Oct. 20 -- University of Colorado, Boulder.
- Oct. 21 -- Colorado School of Mines, Golden.
- Oct. 22 -- Montana Geological Society, in conjunction with the Billings Geophysical Section.
His other tour dates, which will include talks on Dec. 13-17 and Feb. 28-March 10, have yet to be finalized.
Brown, an active member of both AAPG and SEG, is considered among the world's top experts at interpretation of 3-D seismic data, stratigraphic interpretation, optimum use of workstations and seismic reservoir identification and evaluation. He has developed many new interpretation methods and is a widely published author.
He is, in fact, no stranger to joint AAPG-SEG efforts, being the author of the best-selling AAPG Memoir 42-SEG Investigations in Geophysics, No. 9, Interpretation of Three-Dimensional Seismic Data, which recently was reprinted in its fifth edition.
