Wiki Meetup at 2015 Annual Meeting

Join the SEG Wiki Committee and your peers in New Orleans for the 3rd annual Wiki Meetup. This year, the meetup will blend four informational stations on: 1) SEG Wiki 101 - the basics; 2) contributing to the wiki; 3) using open data; and 4) pioneers of the science & women in geoscience, with one informal 5) hack station (or, unconference). Meetup participants should bring a laptop and an idea for how the wiki can connect and inspire the next generation of geoscientists.

AGI's Critical Issues now on the wiki!

SEG has partnered with the American Geosciences Institute to add its Critical Issues Program. The articles provide information on basic geoscience topics to help introduce the subject and provide a great foundation to build more in-depth articles. Start exploring!

TLE tutorials

The SEG publishes geophysical tutorials bimonthly in the The Leading Edge. The eighth tutorial, Seismic petrophysics: Part 2, was recently published in the June 2015 edition.


Many of the pioneers in the development of exploration geophysics reside in the Biographies. Add your insight and knowledge of these trailblazers for the next generation.

Please help us develop our women in geoscience biographies.


Wiki chat

SEG's next #SEGWikiChat will be Tuesday, 25 August from 10:00-11:00am CDT on Muut. The special guests will be Judy Smith and Stamatina Mattie Mylonas, student researchers, from Penn State Brandywine. They are working on a summer project entitled "Collaborating, Contributing, and Community Building through the SEG Wiki." Check out the first two articles from this project: plate tectonics and greenhouse gases.


About the SEG Wiki

The goal of the SEG Wiki is: to expand the world’s knowledge of applied geophysics, to provide further details of ("layer") the science itself, and to engage emerging professionals in the field. Robert E. Sheriff's Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition and Oz Yilmaz's Seismic Data Analysis seeded the SEG Wiki with its initial content. We encourage you to read, edit, and enhance the SEG Wiki. Add your layer to the science of applied geophysics today.
