Honorable Mention (Geophysics) 2004

Laurent Sirgue and R. Gerhard Pratt received 2004 Honorable Mention (Geophysics) for their paper Efficient waveform inversion and imaging: A strategy for selecting temporal frequencies[1]

Biography 2004 [2]

R. Gerhard Pratt received a B.Sc (1980) in engineering physics from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. He received an M.Sc. (1986) and a Ph.D. (1989) in geophysics from Imperial College, London, and held an NSERC postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Physics at the University of Toronto from 1990 to 1992. He worked for Schlumberger as a wireline engineer from 1980 to 1985. Pratt was the Elf-Aquitaine lecturer in geophysics at Imperial College from 1992 to 1998, and since then he has been an associate professor of geophysics at Queen's University, Canada. In 2001, he was a Wiess visiting professor at Rice University, Houston. He is a past associate editor of GEOPHYSICS. His interests are the nonlinear seismic inverse problem (which encompasses most aspect of seismic data acquisition), numerical modeling, imaging, migration, seismic data processing, and fundamental questions of resolution and accuracy. He is a member of SEG, EAGE, and AGU, and a registered professional engineer in Ontario.
