Keep in mind that topics should be fresh and balanced in practice and theory. The nominee must also be a member of SEG*, an outstanding communicator, and able to devote time to the lecture tour.
This program honors outstanding individuals noted for high-caliber work in their contributions to geophysics on an international level, and who are outstanding communicators of ideas and concepts. The topic should be of global interest.
This program focuses on transfer of knowledge within a region, recognizes prominent geophysicists, and strengthens the services that SEG provides to an expanding global membership. The topic should be of interest to the following regions in which the Honorary Lecturer is assigned: Europe, Latin America, Middle East & Africa, North America, Pacific South, and South & East Asia.
The common goals of the two programs are to:
- Recognize an individual’s contributions to advancing the science and technology of geophysics.
- Disseminate discipline knowledge via speaking tours of SEG Sections, including Associated Societies and Student Chapters, and other venues as appropriate.
- Foster a sense of community amongst geophysicists by providing opportunities for local meetings and exchange of ideas.
- Encourage students by providing the opportunity to discuss scientific and career issues with a leading expert.
