Eötvös Student Chapter in SEG was founded in October 2013 at the Department of Geophysics and Space Sciences at Eötvös Loránd Universtiy, Budapest. Primary goals are: organising workshops, conferences, field trips and social events to our members. Supporting students to find industrial connections. Initiating strong cooperation with Eötvös Student Chapter of AAPG, Szeged Student Chapter of AAPG evolving connection with SEG student chapters from neighbouring countries.

The society has around 20 (BSc, MSc, PhD student) members in every year.

Field Camps

IV International Joint Field Trip in Hungary 2022

The Eötvös Student Chaper in SEG organized its 4th international joint field trip from October 17-24 2022. It took place in Mályi, where the participants had the opportunity to investigate environmental and geological problems. The field trip was organized in collaboration with Geomega KFT. and the Faculty of Geophysics and Space Science. The participants could learn the basics of several applied geophysical methods, such as ERT surveying, seismic surveying, and water seismic, ERT and radar measurements.

III International Joint Field Trip in Hungary 2018

In April 23-29, 2018 we organized the 3rd international joint field trip with Eötvös University Student Chapter of AAPG on Balaton Highland, Hungary. The event was supported financial by Eötvös Loránd University, AAPG, Mining and Geological Survey of Hungary. 13 students from abroad (Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Norway) and 7 Hungarian students took part in this successful event. As results of the field trip, 3 total magnetic maps, 3 DEM model with high resolution, two-dimensional seismic lines and several ERT surveying were completed.

II International Joint Field Trip in Hungary 2017

I International Joint Field Trip in Hungary 2015

Our chapter, together with the AAPG Eötvös Student Chapter, co-organized the First International SEG-AAPG Joint Field Camp between 10 and 16 September 2015 at the Balaton Highlands. The aim of the field camp was to give the participants an insight into the usage of near-surface geophysical methods to solve geological problems. The idea was born a year ago to integrate practical field geology and geophysics in a field camp.

The following three methods were used:

  • Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES)
  • Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT)
  • Magnetic methods

The 4 geological problems were:

  • The depth of the sedimentary infill of maar volcanoes,
  • Determining whether separate basaltic bodies are connected underground,
  • Paleotopography of the Mesozoic basement,
  • Locating fractured zones in carbonate platforms.

Students came from six countries: Hungary, Brazil, Germany, the United Kingdom (Scotland), Poland, and Netherland and there were both geologists and geophysicists present. Each participant was assigned to a group of 5-6 people with one of the four geological problems and it was their job to interpret the results of the geophysical measurements.

The summary of the field camp was published in the SEG Near-Surface Views Fourth Quarter 2015, Vol. 22. No. 4. as a Student Chapter Highlight.

The field camp and this contribution were co-financed by the Association of American Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), Geoinform Well Services Ltd., and MOL Plc. We would like to thank the Department of Geophysics and Space Science, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest for the permission to use their geophysical instruments. The Tihany Geophysical Observatory is highly acknowledged for providing the daily variations in the Earth’s magnetic field.
