Encyclopedia of Exploration Geophysics welcomes proposals

SEG is actively accepting proposals for submissions to a new special publication, the Encyclopedia of Exploration Geophysics, edited by Vladimir Grechka and Kees Wapenaar.

Articles submitted for the Encyclopedia should be written at an introductory level, accessible to students and practicing geophysicists who wish to learn an unfamiliar exploration subject, or at a more advanced level, intended for readers who already have some working knowledge and would like to deepen and extend it.

Potential authors should download and complete the proposal form and email it to [email protected]. Editors will review proposals and communicate with authors about development of their work.

The first four articles, "Seismic characterization of fractured reservoirs" by Vladimir Grechka, "Wide-azimuth amplitude-variation-with-offset analysis of anisotropic fractured reservoirs" by Andreas Rüger and David Gray, "Estimating subsurface parameter fields for seismic migration: Velocity model building" by Ian F. Jones, and "Seismic imaging" by Samuel H. Gray are available for free download from the SEG Library.

Articles will continue to be published online in SEG eBooks after each is approved, edited, and formatted. A collection of concise, up-to-date, application-oriented articles covering all areas of exploration geophysics, the Encyclopedia will be produced in a print version after most of the content has been posted online.
