Honorary Lecturer

From SEG Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

SEG's Honorary Lecturer program is a companion program to SEG's Distinguished Lecturer program with a focus to transfer knowledge within a region. The regional focus strengthens services SEG provides to an expanding global membership. Lectures may be given in English or a language appropriate to the region. The regions are Central and South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, North America, the Pacific South, and South and East Asia.

Selection as an Honorary Lecturer is viewed as an honor and recognition of excellence by the SEG. In addition to recognizing an individual's contributions to the science or application of geophysics, this position is an active effort to promote geophysics, stimulate general scientific and professional interest, expand technical horizons, and provide a connection to SEG activities and practices.
