It is the 85th Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Annual Meeting! It was a nice opportunity to travel to New Orleans. The SEG event was less flashy compared to last year, but I'm happy I went even for just the first two days. The INT1 (Attribute Analysis for Stratigraphy) and SS (Recent Advances and the Road Ahead) talks were my priority, I had the chance to listen to a few of the talks. The Student Challenge Bowl was highly amusing, it could be fun to gather up a team in Rice University and participate. Adjunct professor Steve Danbom was one of judges and he mentioned that Rice had one of the Bowls a few years ago.
I also joined the SEG wiki team and I'm now looking forward to contributing to that database. In case you haven't heard so far, Oz Yilmaz's Seismic Data Analysis, volumes both I and II, are uploaded on SEG wiki. Extremely useful.
