NS001:
Advances in Exploration Geophysics





Session ID#: 25792

Session Description:
We seek abstracts on the advancement of geophysical methodology, instrumentation, processing, modeling and/or interpretation as applied to conventional/unconventional oil & gas, geothermal, mineral and water resources exploration.  Other areas of exploration as well as related environmental studies are also encouraged. Developments and case studies in seismic, electromagnetic, gravity, magnetic, ground penetrating radar, in addition to non-traditional geophysical methods and integrated techniques are welcome. Submissions on industry relevant innovations and applications are particularly encouraged. We aim to foster interaction between academia and industry in this session in an effort to bridge existing gaps. This session is in collaboration with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG).
