Near-Surface Global Lecturer
Near-surface applications are increasing in number and societal value. SEG’s Near-Surface Geophysics Technical Section is dedicated to advancing applied geophysics in the near surface that benefits society and the environment. Sharing and communication of theoretical advances, technology developments, and best practices are essential for the advancement and effective application of geophysics. The SEG Virtual Near-Surface Global Lecturer, formerly the Near-Surface Honorary Lecturer, provides online lectures on topics in near-surface geophysics.
All past Near-Surface Global Lecturers are listed. A summary of the lecture is included on the lecturer's biography page along with a link to a recording of the lecture, if available.
