About the RECORDER

The Mandate of the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists is to promote the science of geophysics, especially as it applies to exploration, and to promote fellowship and cooperation among those persons interested in geophysical prospecting.

The RECORDER is the official publication of the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

The RECORDER supports the CSEG Mandate in three main ways:

  1. By publishing high quality articles that are of interest to Canadian geophysicists from coast to coast to coast.
  2. By publishing information about the CSEG and other industry activities and events for the benefit of CSEG members.
  3. By publishing information about the activities of individual CSEG members for the benefit of other CSEG members.

The goal of the 2016/17 RECORDER committee is to make the RECORDER the destination of choice for publishing (or “recording”), as quickly as possible, CSEG members thoughts and opinions on a wide range of topics, both technical and non-technical, that are of general interest to the wider geophysical community in Canada.

Material published in the RECORDER includes views and opinions of the respective contributors, and does not necessarily represent those of the CSEG or its affiliates. The CSEG does not endorse or warrant the information printed. While the CSEG strives to ensure the published content is correct, the CSEG cannot guarantee its accuracy.

Highlights of this edition…

We are pleased to publish a set of technical articles submitted by the CREWES Research Consortium at the University of Calgary. Kris Innanen’s introduction ties these articles together nicely, and explains how they fit into CREWES’ overarching research vision.

Amanda Knowles gives a heartrending account of the devastating impact that the current industry downturn is having on people’s lives. I am thankful to the industry veteran who reached out to me recently and offered the following words of encouragement: “Keep pushing ahead. I know it is hard to find work now, but I have been through this cycle 5 times in 40 years. We will see a bright future.”
