Contribution options

The Wiki Meetup connects those passionate about the science of applied geophysics with the tools necessary to make lasting contributions. The SEG Wiki Meetup is a form of hackathon, or an event focused on shared development through community-led collaboration, that began during the 2013 SEG Annual Meeting in Houston. During the meetup, contributors join to build SEG Wiki pages, meet colleagues and peers, and advance geophysics around the world.


  • Adding historical and current biographies of geophysics experts and major contributors to the field
  • New biographies include but not limited to SEG authors, award winners, and past presidents
  • Goal: reach 1,000 biographies (920 as of 22 September 2017)
