The Geophysical Society of Pittsburgh is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the science of geophysics in the Appalachian Basin. We are an official section of the Society of Exploration Geophysics (SEG). Monthly meetings are generally held from September to May on the first Tuesday of each month at various locations around the Greater Pittsburgh area. However, be sure to check the event calendar as exceptions to this rule occur often. All interested parties are encouraged to attend.

Surface Microseismic:
How Many Events Are Enough?

Barry Fish, Dave Diller and Ted Shuck

In this presentation, we investigate the different types of information that geoscientists wish to extract from their microseismic data, and attempt to answer the question that is the subtitle of the talk.  The presentation will be illustrated by data from a large-scale, successful microseismic READ MORE

About our Speaker:

Barry Fish is the Chief Operating Officer at NanoSeis, and has extensive experience in the energy and software industries.  He began his geophysics career at Union Pacific Resources in Canada, and subsequently worked with the other two NanoSeis principals, Dave Diller and Ted Shuck, at Advance Geophysical on ProMAX and SeisSpace. 
Barry escaped from the oil industry for about a decade, and worked on software and operations projects for Sun Microsystems and EDS.  Two notable ones were managing the patch- and update-delivery team for Sun, and a multi-site network refresh for an EDS customer.  
Barry sits on the Industrial Advisory Board of the Department of Computer Science at Colorado State University, and maintains an interest in optimization in large problem spaces, deconvolution, and artificial intelligence.
