AAPG functions because of you, the members, and there are many different ways for you to get involved in your organization. Some choose to start in their local affiliated society, working on committees and holding offices within them. Others get involved through leadership and organizing events within the sections and regions. These are the grassroots of our membership, and AAPG leadership is working to strengthen these roots.
It’s an exciting time for women geoscientists. The AAPG Professional Women in Earth Sciences special interest group has undergone a transformation. The SIG has been renamed the AAPG Women’s Network, but along with the name change and a new logo, the group has made some important changes to its mission and goals.
When one lives in Louisiana, even in the northern part, February and early March are full of tidings of “laissez les bon temps rouler!” or “let the good times roll!’’ Only geoscience nerds like you and I would apply that to May’s exceptional 2019 AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in San Antonio. So, start these good times rolling now by registering early on or before March 21 for a great discount.
It is a well proven fact that a diverse workforce is good for business and improves the bottom line – but the E&P industry, in common with many others, is not making significant progress in this area. A recent report on gender diversity in the energy industry, for example, found that, at 22 percent, oil and gas has one of the lowest shares of female employees of any major industry – an imbalance that transcends seniority, geography and business segment.
The documentary 'Rock Stars: Women in Petroleum Geology' is gaining a wider audience with screenings at film festivals, society meetings and universities. Find out how to request a screening.
Antarctica is not known for its hospitable environment or its warmth. But for Paola Tello Guerrero, an oil and gas physicist-turned-environmental activist, Antarctica represents connection, passion and inspiration. The icy continent lit an inner fire that she is taking around the world.
Technology that makes operations safer as well as more efficient is a focus for AAPG’s U-Pitch pitch event to take place at URTeC, July 23-25 in Houston. Welcome to an interview with Paul Gibbs, developer and creator of the Freedom Tank Technology Tool which is designed to make oil and gas storage much safer.
Independent geologist J. Michael Party, president of Midland, Texas-based Beryl Oil and Gas LP, has been voted president-elect of AAPG for the 2018-19 term.
Do you remember that awesome documentary by the PROWESS SIG from last year’s ACE that everyone was talking about, but you didn’t get to see? Well, now you can.
We know they're out there ... tell us who they are. Help us identify those who are making a difference with their excellence in achievements and contributions to our science, our profession and our Association. Two months remain to submit a nomination recognizing those who continue to make AAPG a valuable asset to the industry and the world of geosciences.

Memoir 98 – This memoir comprises works on biostratigraphy, ichnology, stratigraphy, depositional facies, diagenesis, and petroleum and mineral resources of the Great American Carbonate Bank. Release date: 01/2013
Memoir 92 portrays key applications of dipmeter and image log data across the exploration and production life cycle. It illustrates the value of integrating high-resolution dipmeter and borehole image data with seismic, well-log, and geological knowledge in order to construct integrated subsurface models. It provides the fundamentals of the technology for novice and specialist geoscientists and petroleum engineers alike, as well as introducing state-of-the-art applications. Release date: 08/2010
This volume presents a compilation of the state of the science contributions from the international research community on the topic of geosequestration of carbon dioxide, including papers on current status and challenges, regional assessment studies, and a discussion of the economics and regulatory aspects.
Memoir 96 presents a comprehensive survey of cutting-edge approaches used by industry to quantify the uncertainty in both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. Balanced between case histories and theory, the chapters in this volume equip experienced practitioners and those just entering the field with the theories, workflows, and case history examples needed to make better reservoir management decisions in the modern oil and gas field. Release date: 12/2011
This volume will prove useful to anyone interested in the methods for observing and quantifying the pore systems that control hydrocarbon storage and flow in unconventional reservoirs.
This volume includes contributions dealing with the origin of the magnetic minerals, and the application of MS as a palaeoenvironmental or palaeoclimatic proxy and also as a tool to provide astronomical calibration in order to improve the chronology of selected time intervals.
Continental margins and their fossilized analogues are important repositories of natural resources. With increased availability of high quality geological, seismic and potential field data, imaging of these margins and their embedded sedimentary basins and magnetic rocks has reached new levels of refinement and definition, as illustrated by the examples described in this volume.
This Memoir is critical for exploration geoscientists in the petroleum industry, research institutions, and academia in order to understand the diverse petroleum systems, the tectonic and geologic evolution of sedimentary basins, and the development of hydrocarbon fields in these regions of South America. Product #1303. Price: Member $131 / List $262.
This volume expands and improves the AAPG 1978 classic, A Color Illustrated Guide to Carbonate Rock Constituents, Textures, Cements, and Porosities (AAPG Memoir 27). Product #649.
SALE Price $24 (Regularly priced: Member $48 / List $68)
This 18-chapter volume is small enough to focus on the interplay among tectonics, sedimentation, and petroleum systems. Yet it is big enough to cover the diversity of structural styles in important petroliferous sedimentary basins around the globe. Product #1174. Price: Member $174 / List $174.
Comprised of 48 chapters, this Memoir covers the biostratigraphy, ichnology, stratigraphy, depositional facies, diagenesis, and petroleum and mineral resources of the GACB. Product #787. Price: Member $184/List $304.
