Biography 1972

Thomas L. Davis was born in 1947 in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He received a B.E degree (1969) in geophysical engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, and an M.Sc degree (1971) in geology (geophysics) from the University of Calgary.

His main research to date has involved the determination and the distribution of seismic velocity in the subsurface of Western Canada. He received the CSEG Best Paper award in 1971 for his presentation Velocity Variations around Leducs Reef, Alberta [2]

At present, he is a geophysicist with Amoco Canada Petroleum Company Ltd. in Calgary, Alberta. He is an associate member of SEG and a member of CSEG. [3]
