A category for biographies of well-known geophysicists or contributors to the field of geophysics. To add a page to this category, put {{Infobox biography}} at the beginning of an article. See one of the existing biographies for an example.

The SEG Wiki Product Development Concept document proposes drawing material from SEG historical sites like the SEG Virtual Museum web pages. The list below comes from the SEG Virtual Museum's biography section. Many past presidents and SEG award recipients appear on this list.

I am not sure how to teach contributors how to use a standard template. I suggest you talk to Matt Hall and John Stockwell. Matt taught me how to redirect links like Lewis L. Nettleton and Lewis Lomax Nettleton go to the same wiki page — check out the link Oz Yilmaz. Other examples are Carl Savit/Carl H. Savit, R. H. Stolt/Robert H. Stolt and Dr. Frank Press/Frank Press

Discussion points

  • Is there a particular biography we like and can point to as a model biography? A: Yes, the biographies of Robert Sheriff and R. M. Clowes are particularly strong.
  • Do we want a more standard format for names? E.g. Firstname Lastname, or Firstname M. Lastname? Perhaps just 'whatever they were known as'?
  • You can handle ambiguities or multiple names with 'aliases', which are called Redirects in a wiki.
