Who Should Attend:  New hires, experienced geologists, and geoscience technicians who work with seismic data and wish to learn and develop basic seismic interpretation skills.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will:
Know basic concepts and practices of seismic interpretation.
Be able to interpret horizons and faults on seismic data.
Be able to identify interpretation problems and pitfalls.
Recognize the importance of seismic interpretation in a business context.
The course consists of lectures on fundamental topics including basics of petroleum geology, seismic response, velocity, resolution, seismic migration, seismic correlation and mapping techniques, and quantified interpretation.  Lectures are supported by hands-on exercises, and the second half of the course includes two practical correlation & mapping projects.

Don Herron received a BS degree (with honors) in geological sciences from Brown University & a Master of Science degree in geological sciences from the California Institute of Technology.  He was a seismic interpreter at Texaco, Gulf, & Sohio/BP.  Following retirement from BP he was a geoscience consultant for PGS and a seismic interpretation instructor for several major oil companies. He was co-instructor for the SEG Continuing Education course “Seismic Interpretation in the Exploration Domain”, a member of the Editorial Board of The Leading Edge (TLE) (chairman 2006–2007), & currently is an Assistant Editor for the joint SEG-AAPG journal Interpretation.  He writes TLE’s “Interpreter Sam” column.
Robert C. Wegner received a BS in geology from Queens College, a M.S. in geophysics from Lehigh University, & a Ph.D. in geophysics from Rice University.  Bob retired from ExxonMobil's Upstream Research Company after developing quantitative seismic interpretation tools and techniques. He has taught petroleum exploration at Rice University and the University of Texas' Continuing Education Department, is a short course instructor for the SEG & AAPG in Basic Seismic Interpretation, has been a member and chairman of the SEG Continuing Education Committee. & is a reviewer for the special session of the joint SEG-AAPG journal Interpretation dealing with seismic Interpretation pitfalls.
