The SEG Wiki Awards honor the top contributors to the wiki annually. Honorees receive a featured article in The Leading Edge, free SEG eBook of choice, and other prizes. Additionally, all winners receive an invitation to attend SEG's Editor’s Reception, a gathering honoring the volunteers who contribute to the technical excellence of the Society’s publications.

Learn about the past wiki award winners. Add your layer to the science of geophysics, and help us to continue to build the leading free, living resource for the geophysics community!

2014 Wiki Champion John W. Stockwell, Jr. and SEG President Elect Christopher Liner at the Editors' Dinner.


The SEG Wiki awards are based on:

  • the quantity and quality of contributions
  • extent by which those contributions (and the contributor) connect others to SEG and the wiki
  • how the contributions extend beyond the wiki to inspire and propel the science of geophysics
  • how the contributors' service aligns with wiki contribution needs

Note: We have intentionally designed the award criteria to be flexible to accommodate innovation that advances the science.
