Volunteer for the SEG Wiki

The SEG Wiki staff and committee seek volunteers for a range of duties including: SEG Wiki biography editor and Geophysics 101 editor. We also seek to expand our collaboration with universities. We are looking for two class partners who will assist in growing geoscience- and geophysics-related content for the wiki with their students, following the successful model established between SEG and Penn State Brandywine's Dr. Laura Guertin.

To learn more, visit our opportunities page. SEG Wiki volunteer positions offer exciting opportunities to make a significant impact to the SEG community, its global members and affiliated societies, and the public at large.

TLE tutorials

The SEG publishes geophysical tutorials bimonthly in the The Leading Edge. The 14th tutorial, The function of interpolation by Matt Hall, was recently published in the April 2016 edition.

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!


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.


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 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.
