Gijs Vermeer received an MS (1965) in applied mathematics from the Technological University of Delft. After military service he joined Shell Research where he carried out seismic processing research, and then eight years in seismic processing at Shell Expro (London) and NAM (The Netherlands). After another seven years in research, on seismic interpretation, he joined Shell Canada in 1988. In 1991 he went back to Shell Research to work on seismic data acquisition techniques. In 1997 he took early retirement from Shell and started 3DSymSam-Geophysical Advice, a company specialized in 3-D survey design and analysis. He is the author of Seismic Wavefield Sampling published in 1990 by the SEG in its Geophysical Reference Series. His interests are seismic data acquisition and seismic data processing and their interrelationships. He is a member of EAGE, SEG, and CSEG.
