The October AAPG Explorer is our annual Geophysical Review.

In it you’ll find a current overview of the state of the geophysical industry – and what some companies are doing to battle the global downturn in oil prices. (Hint: There’s some good news, too, in the form of ongoing innovations and acquisitions in the geophysical industry.)

The October lineup includes:

  • How previously ignored aspects of 3-D seismic can be leveraged for more data and better efficiencies.
  • How Mexico’s newly opened E&P prospects are driving new interest in 2-D seismic data for the region.
  • Coverage from various angles on the uptick in induced seismicity in Oklahoma and elsewhere in the United States.
  • The conclusion of our series on Mars exploration, as explained by members of AAPG’s Astrogeology Committee.

The October Explorer also includes a profile on Joe Satterfield, the AAPG Foundation’s 2015 Professor of the Year and more.
