Wiki video help series
This help series aims to provide you with the skills necessary to start contributing. We have completed help videos on launching your own user page, growing articles in our biographies section, and advanced tutorials on improving Sheriff's Dictionary. Future videos are planned, so bookmark the playlist!
The SEG is publishing an increasing number of geophysical tutorials. The seventh tutorial, Picking unconformities, was recently published in the February 2015 edition of The Leading Edge.
Key concepts from SEG books
SEG Wiki has been working closely with Don Herron to create wiki articles based on Don’s 2011 book First Steps in Seismic Interpretation. Don has condensed, expanded, and paraphrased key concepts from his book for the wiki. Articles on derivation of Poisson's ratio, derivation of reflection coefficient, derivation of Snell's Law, correlation procedures in building a depth migration velocity model, interpretation work flows, and visual estimation of wavelet phase are now available.
