Serge A. Shapiro, Elmar Rothert, Volker Rath, and Jan Rindschwentner received the 2002 SEG Best Paper in Geophysics Award for their paper Characterization of fluid transport properties of reservoirs using induced anisotropy.
Biography 2002 
Elmar Rothert received an MS (1999) in geophysics from the University of Goettingen. Since 2000 he has worked on his PhD thesis at the Freie Universitat Berlin. His Research interests include wave propagation in heterogeneous media and seismicity based reservoir characterization. Currently he focuses on the reconstruction of the three dimensional permeability distribution in heterogeneous anisotropic, fluid saturated media to characterize geothermal reservoirs, and aquifers using fluid-induced microseismicity. he is a member of the AGU, EAGE, and SEG.
