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.

Structural Origin of Henderson Dome: Stratigraphic & Geophysical Study of an Upper Ordovician Impact Crater

Travis Duran and Andrew Smith


Abstract: Henderson Dome is an anomalous 8km wide, roughly circular structural oil & gas field in Mercer Co, PA. Earliest production goes back more than a century in the Upper Devonian sandstones which are now used for gas storage. Deeper production from the Upper Silurian Lockport Dolomite is more notable, as commercial accumulations READ MORE

Bio: Travis Duran has been a geophysicist at Seneca Resources since 2014 where his focus is exploring and developing the Marcellus and Utica in Pennsylvania. Travis studied at Cornell University for 5 years, receiving his Bachelors in Applied Engineering Physics and Masters in Geophysics.  His two fold master’s program focused on experimental compartmentalization of reservoirs via capillary sealing and data mining procedures for seismic attribute analysis. Travis also served as the president of the SEG student chapter at Cornell and has been a member of the GSP for two years. A native to the Pittsburgh, Travis operates a small family farm where he raises cattle and corn. As a hobby, Travis restores antique tractors in an effort to preserve agricultural history.
