This spring, I chaired the Geophysical Society of Houston spring symposium, in which the Society honored Dan Hampson and Brian Russell for their tremendous contributions to seismic inversion and applied geophysics. My wrap-up article on the symposium is in this month’s issue of the GSH Journal. Here is a direct link to the article itself: PDF. (Non-geos, there’s a simple explanation in there of what seismic inversion is and why it’s important.)
I’d like to take this opportunity to say that Dan and Brian are complete mensches as are the speakers who honored them. Cheers to them all!
