Clint W. Frasier and Don Winterstein received the 1990 SEG Best Paper in Geophysics Award for their paper Analysis of conventional and converted mode reflections at Putah Sink, California using three-component data.
Clint W. Frasier received B.S. and M.S. degrees in geophysics from Cal Tech in 1960. After 5 years of exploration and research work with Amoco, he received a Ph.D. in geophysics from M.I.T. in 1969. After graduation he stayed at Lincoln Lab at M.I.T. and worked on seismic methods of discriminating nuclear explosions from earthquakes using data from large aperture arrays, such as LASA and NORSAR. During 1977-1979, he was an Associate Editor of Geophysics. Since 1978 he has worked at Chevron Oil Field Research in La Habra on multicomponent data recording and analysis, seismic modeling, and stratigraphic analysis. He is senior research associate and is currently head of a group studying recording in poor data areas.
