Satinder Chopra Continues Geophysical Corner Editing
Satinder Chopra, an award-winning geoscientist who has contributed numerous papers to Geophysical Corner over the past several years, will be the column’s new editor.
He replaces Bob Hardage, who has been the Geophysical Corner editor since January 2006. Hardage, a senior research scientist at the Bureau of Economic Geology in Austin, Texas, is beginning his term as president of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.
Chopra, an AAPG Distinguished Lecturer and winner of the 2010 AAPG George C. Matson Award for his paper, “Delineating Stratigraphic Features Via Cross-Plotting of Seismic Discontinuity Attributes and Their Volume Visualization,” is chief geophysicist (reservoir), at Arcis Corporation, Calgary, Canada.
In the last 27 years he has worked in regular seismic processing and interactive interpretation, but has spent more time in special processing of seismic data involving seismic attributes including coherence, curvature and texture attributes, seismic inversion, AVO, VSP processing and frequency enhancement of seismic data.
He has published seven books and more than 220 papers and abstracts.
He is the past chief editor of the CSEG RECORDER, a past member of the SEG’s Leading Edge editorial board and the ex-chairman of the SEG Publications Committee.
In addition to AAPG, he is a member of SEG, CSEG, CSPG, CHOA (Canadian Heavy Oil Association), EAGE, APEGGA (Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta) and TBPG (Texas Board of Professional Geoscientists).
