# Honorable Mentions (Geophysics)

The SEG recognizes those authors whose papers received Honorable Mention in the search for Best Paper in Geophysics.

By clicking on the title to the article, you will be taken to a landing page to choose either the SEG Digital Library or GeoScienceWorld to view the abstract or the full article. The abstract is available after choosing a platform, regardless of member status.

Clicking on an author's name will open the biography page of that author, if it exists (blue). Names in red indicate biography pages still to be added (please add!).
