Many attempts have been made throughout the history of modern seismic to image thin beds (<1/4 of dominant wavelength) by extracting higher frequencies from seismic. In addition to simply imaging zones below normal resolution, two of the more common goals to aid in reservoir development are: to define pinch-outs of producing zones and to resolve internal bed geometries.

Carbonate Sedimentologist Research Associate

The Reservoir characterization Research Laboratory (RCRL) at the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) of the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking a full-time researcher to develop areas of existing and emerging research on carbonate systems as it relates to applied subsurface geology. Candidates that have experience in mixed carbonate-siliciclastics stratigraphy and sedimentology are preferred.

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Atmospheric Sciences

The University of Houston Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Atmospheric Science at the assistant professor level. This position request seeks a dynamic researcher and educator who can establish an externally funded research program in the field of Atmospheric Dynamics. This position is open to candidates whose research interest may cover any spatial scale in the climate system. Candidates with modeling and/or experimental background are encouraged to apply.

VG Abstract

In 1991, Gulf Indonesia and its partners discovered South Sumatra Basin’s first major gas field at Dayung in the Corridor PSC. A key feature of this field is that most of the reserves are held within fractured basement rocks of pre-Tertiary age.

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints.
