Dan Loewenthal and Enders A. Robinson received the 2000 SEG Best Paper in Geophysics Award for their paper On unified dual fields and Einstein deconvolution.[1]


Dan Loewenthal (1943-2000) received a BS in applied mathematics from Tel Aviv University in 1965. He received his MS (1967) and PhD (1970) from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, all in applied mathematics. He was on the Raymond and Beverly Sacker Faculty of Exact Sciences at Tel Aviv University from 1968. He did his post doctorate work at the University of Texas at Dallas. From 1973-73 he worked for Digicon in Houston, Texas, on the exploding reflector migration program. From 1976-77 he was on sabbatical leave at Amoco Research Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and from 1982-83 at the Seismic Acoustic Lab at the University of Houston. From 1984-85 he was on the Petrobras and P.P.P.G. program at the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. He spent sabbatical summers at Houston Advanced Research Center, Sydney University, Curtin University, MIT, at Cambridge Mass., Cambridge, England, Columbia University, and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. His interests were in modeling, migrating and inverting seismic and electromagnetic data as well as time series analysis.[2]
