SEG Student Chapter

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the science of applied geophysics and the education of geophysicists. SEG, founded in 1930, fosters the expert and ethical practice of geophysics in the exploration and development of natural resources, in characterizing the near surface, and in mitigating earth hazards. The Society, which has more than 33,000 members in 138 countries, fulfills its mission through its publications, conferences, forums, websites, and educational opportunities. SEG is committed to “inspiring the geoscientists of tomorrow” and their student chapters are an excellent resource to increase the interest within their peers about geophysics. SEG Student Chapters empower students to participate and spearhead projects that will address issues, challenges, or opportunities related to SEG’s mission of promoting the science of geophysics.
