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!

Wiki video help series

This help series aims to provide you with the skills necessary to start contributing. We have completed help videos on launching your own user page, growing articles in our biographies section, and advanced tutorials on improving Sheriff's Dictionary. Future videos are planned, so bookmark the playlist!

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

The latest #SEGWikiChat was held on Tuesday, 30 June. You can read the entire chat with special guest Dr. Laura Guertin, Professor of Earth Science at Penn State Brandywine now! Dr. Guertin discusses technology in the classroom, offers career advice, and shares tips on keeping up with the latest in the geoscience world. She blogs regularly at GeoEd Trek.


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.
