Welcome


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.

Appalachian Basin 3D Seismic Acquisition
What Have We Learned after 12 Surveys?

Jianli Yang
Seneca Resources Corp.

Since 2009 Seneca Resources has participated in the acquisition of 12 proprietary 3D seismic surveys covering over 650 sq. mi. in northern Pennsylvania.  These data have been an integral part of Seneca’s success developing unconventional reserves in the Appalachian Basin.  Overall data quality has been excellent in spite of the numerous data acquisition challenges this area presents. 
Although each survey provides its own unique set of challenges a successful 3D program usually involves considerable planning including the following steps: READ MORE
