WRGP Winter Seminar Series - Week 9

Please join us for the upcoming Water Resources Science Seminar. Dr. Henry Posamentier, Energy Consultant will present “Fluvial Systems in Time and Space: Highlighting the Value of 3D Seismic Data” on Wednesday, May 29, from 4 to 5 p.m. in BEXL 328.

About Dr. Posamentier:

Henry W. Posamentier has over 40 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry and is a worldwide consultant in seismic and sequence stratigraphy with a focus on lithofacies prediction risk issues, where he has widely published. He has been instrumental in the development of sequence stratigraphic concepts as well as the development of seismic stratigraphy and seismic geomorphology as an analytical tool. Throughout, he has employed an interdisciplinary approach to the prediction of lithofacies distribution by integrating stratigraphy, geomorphology, and depositional systems analysis, using 3D seismic visualization integrated with borehole data. In 1971-1972, Dr. Posamentier was a Fulbright Fellow to Austria. He has served as an AAPG Distinguished Lecturer to the United States (1991-1992), an AAPG Distinguished Lecturer to the former Soviet Union (1996-1997), an AAPG Distinguished Lecturer to the Middle East (1998-1999), and an AAPG Distinguished Lecturer to Europe (2005-2006). He was awarded the Pettijohn Medal for excellence in sedimentology from the Society for Sedimentary geology (SEPM) in 2008, the William Smith Medal for contributions to applied and economic aspects of geology from the Geological Society of London in 2010, and the Robert Berg Award for Outstanding Petroleum Research from the AAPG in 2012.

The seminar is free and open to the public.

We hope to see you there!
