Goal: Expand SEG Wiki biographies beyond contributors in North America

Idea: Expand bios by finding award winners from other respected geoscience organizations and book authors who have published with such an organization.

The simplest place to start may be to create a list of international geoscience organizations and determine if they award prizes and/or publish books. Then from this list begin working on expanding our biographies. Even looking internally at your own organization or university can be a good place to find worthy biographies.

  • We have begun to catalog the pioneers in this category by their local or regional society affiliations. The Geophysical Society of Houston is a great starting point. We need your help in building the GSH category and in launching other, regional society affiliations.
  • Women who have made substantial contributions to the geosciences should be included in the [[Category: Women in geoscience]].
