20th Annual 3D Seismic Symposium to be held in Denver on February 14, 2014

Below you will find details about the premier technical event of the Denver Geophysical Society and the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists, the 20th Annual 3D Seismic Symposium to be held in Denver on February 14, 2014. It is a one-day technical event focused on case histories and new technologies in 3D seismic.

Please see the attached flyer, document and hyperlink for details.



Call for Abstracts: SSA Anchorage 4/30/14 – 5/2/14

Seismology is entering an era of innovation where it is increasingly possible to record and utilize spatially unaliased wavefields for both structural and source studies with industry and research applications. We encourage seismologists pursuing science goals and methodologies associated with very large arrays, networks of arrays, or other dense instrumentation innovations and applications to submit abstracts to our session for the SSA Anchorage (30 April – 2 May) meeting (

The abstract submission deadline is 10 January 2014.

Thank You,
Rick Aster (Colorado State University) and James Gridley (IRIS PASSCAL)
Session Conveners

Emergence of Continuously Recording Very Large Array Capabilities in Seismology
Enhanced recovery, injection well monitoring, microseismic monitoring, energy exploration, and reservoir characterization/monitoring are driving dramatic new commercial-sector seismic instrument development and analysis techniques in the energy industry. The associated multichannel capabilities are up to orders of magnitude greater than have been available to non-industry-aligned academic seismology. This expansion of monitoring and imaging scope has also produced renewed emphasis on the use of broader-band instrumentation at very large network/array scales. This session will encompass both the diverse scientific/industry opportunities associated with the deployment and analysis of very large numbers of seismographs, and opportunities for associated novel collaborations within the greater seismological and Earth science community.
