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.

2014 GSP Scholarship Program Announced

Established in 2013 by the Geophysical Society of Pittsburgh, the purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships for a junior or senior undergraduate pursuing a BS degree with emphasis in geophysics and who is planning to attend graduate school where he/she will pursue a Masters or PhD degree with an emphasis in geophysics; or a graduate student in geophysics or on a geoscience tract emphasizing geophysics. In either case the student should be attending an accredited college or university in the northeast US within the boundaries of the Appalachian basin.
    Armstrong County Community Foundation (ACCF), administers the fund.  ACCF must receive the complete 2014 application packet by March 15, but you are encouraged to review the process early so you have time to assemble the required components, including information from three (3) references.

3D Seismic Image Processing for Interpretation of Faults and Horizons

Fault surfaces are an important aspect of subsurface geology that we can extract from 3D seismic images. Estimates of fault slips are important as well, as they enable correlation across faults of subsurface properties. Moreover, with estimated fault slips, we can undo faulting apparent in 3D seismic images. After unfaulting, seismic reflections should be more continuous across faults, and this increased continuity facilitates unfolding of 3D seismic images so that reflectors are horizontal. The composite process of unfaulting and unfolding is equivalent to the construction of an entire 3D volume of chronostratigraphic horizons.
