It has a new name, a new energy and a new lineup of experts, all primed to spread geoscience knowledge around the world. “It” is AAPG’s newly named Global Distinguished Lecture Program – emphasis on the “global” – which dates back to 1941 but continues to be the Association’s flagship initiative for offering the latest in geologic science to AAPG affiliated geological societies and universities.

VG Abstract

 

This is a less-technical education topic. It can be condensed to an hour or given as 2 two-hour sessions. It stresses selected controversial aspects of fracking that touch some combination of environment and economics and includes a short video of how fracking is done.

Accurate interpretation of geophysical data, in particular reflection seismic data, is one of the most important elements of a successful oil and gas exploration program. Despite technological advances in data acquisition and processing and regular use of powerful computers and sophisticated software applications, you still face a tremendous challenge each time you begin to reconstruct the geologic story contained in a grid or volume of seismic data -- that is, to interpret the data. On occasion this interpretive tale can be clearly told, but most of the time each page of each chapter is slowly turned, and rarely is the full meaning of the story completely understood. Interpretation of Reflection Seismic Data from the Gulf of Mexico illustrates these concepts using real seismic data and actual exploration problems.
