TLE tutorials

The SEG publishes geophysical tutorials bimonthly in the The Leading Edge. The tenth tutorial, Introduction to compressed sensing by Ben Bougher, was recently published in the October 2015 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 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.
