01/01/2023 – Prof Roman Pevzner and Prof Maxim Lebedev Named Honorary Lecturers for SEG Honorary Lecture Program 2023
Professor Roman Pevzner and Professor Maxim Lebedev were selected as Distinguished Lecturers for SEG’s 2023 SEG Honorary Lecture Program, which is viewed as a major honour and recognition of excellence by the SEG.
This recognition values individual’s scientific contributions and applications in geophysics. Being an Honorary lecturer is also an active effort to promote geophysics, stimulating general scientific and professional interest, expanding technical horizons, and providing a connection to SEG activities and practices… Read more
29/09/2022 – John Curtin Distinguished Professor Boris Gurevich has been appointed Chair of the Distinguished Lecture Committee for the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), the global professional association of applied geophysics professionals.
Boris will lead SEG’s worldwide effort in disseminating geophysical knowledge via online and face-to-face lectures by leading professionals and fostering a sense of community among geophysicists by providing opportunities for local meetings, exchange of ideas and student engagement.

22/11/2022 – Curtin/CSIRO Geophysics Group Seminar
On Wednesday 21st September 2022, Senior Research Fellow Dr Konstantin Tertyshnikov, Exploration Geophysics, Curtin University, presented a seminar titled: A rapid VSP acquisition with DAS in mineral exploration.
In the last decade distributed fibre optic acoustic and temperature sensing has become quite extensively utilised for various reservoir exploration and monitoring tasks.
Specifically, it gained a lot of attention for downhole seismic applications due to distinct directional sensitivity of fibre optic sensors along a cable and in addition due to usual downhole acquisition geometry, where P-waves approaching receivers along a bore and a cable… Read more
