Interpretation is a new, peer-reviewed journal for advancing the practice of subsurface interpretation. It is jointly published by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). Announcement

Interpretation includes 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 for resource exploration, exploitation, and environmental stewardship.

Submit to Interpretation

Interpretation seeks papers directly relevant to the practice of interpretation of the earth's subsurface for exploration and extraction of mineral resources and for environmental and engineering applications. Relevant contributions to Interpretation include, but are not limited to, submissions that advance geophysical or geologic concepts and principles of interpretation; correlation and calibration with engineering data; planning and evaluation of alternative completion strategies; case studies; algorithms for interpretation tools; and workflows, pitfalls, observations, insights, technical challenges, and tutorials.

An Interpretation article is not required to contain an interpretation; it only has to help advance the practice of interpretation. Likewise an article may focus on interpretation of a data set if this provides significant new insight on the geology of an area or on the workflow used.
