70: Celebrating Interpreter Sam with Don Herron

In this special episode, host Andrew Geary brings a longtime SEG member and scribe of the Interpreter Sam column - Don Herron - to the podcast to reflect on his 16 years writing for The Leading Edge. The December 2019 issue published the final Interpreter Sam column. In this back-and-forth conversation, Don shares the original idea for the column, the best feedback he received, the future of interpretation, what he's most proud of with Interpreter Sam, and so much more. This is a must-listen episode for all interpreters and geophysicists! For links to Don's favorite columns - including an interpreter's rendition of A Christmas Carol - visit https://seg.org/podcast/Post/8769. IS DON HERRON, SAM? One question that didn't come up in our conversation is "am I, Don Herron, Sam?" Of course, I'm the author of the column, but is the Sam character me, and are the stories I told all based on my own first-hand experience? The answer is that a majority of the stories are my own, but sometimes I was a major character and other times an innocent bystander. Another question is, who is Sam's "good friend Jack" who figures in a number of the stories? Is he a real person or simply a literary construct? I'll leave that unanswered. - Don Herron BIOGRAPHY Don Herron has enjoyed a career as a seismic interpreter at Texaco (1973–1977), Gulf (1977–1984), and most recently Sohio/BP (1984–2008). At both Gulf and Sohio/BP, he taught in-house courses in seismic interpretation and was co-instructor for the SEG public course “Seismic Interpretation in the Exploration Domain” from 1995 to 2007. He was chairman of the SEG Continuing Education Committee (1998–2001) and a member of the Editorial Board of The Leading Edge (2002–2007, chairman in 2006–2007). He is an active member of SEG, AAPG, and Sigma Xi, and he always has taken the time to observe and write about the world around him. EDITOR'S NOTE Special thanks to all the individuals that provided questions and stories for this episode. I (Andrew Geary) had the privilege to work with Don on the EVOLVE Technical Committee in 2019 as a small part of his many roles at SEG, and it was a pleasure to speak with him on this major achievement built over a decade-plus.

63: Helping those in harm's way - A GWB story

In 2016, Dr. Ron Harris of Brigham Young University led a Geoscientists Without Borders team to Java, Indonesia to help prepare the community for the next tsunami. For this special Soundoff episode, we showcase Ron Harris' project in Java through a short, richly produced and narrative-driven story that captures the spirit of GWB. In Ron's own words, he highlights the moment when his son changed his geoscience career, the simple tool that brought peace to a community, and the power of working together to improve emergency preparedness. This is not just a story about science making a difference, but the role of preparedness in our everyday lives.

62: Anisotropy without tears featuring Heloise Lynn

In this episode, host Andrew Geary speaks with Heloise Lynn on her upcoming North American Honorary Lecturer tour starting 5 September. Andrew and Heloise discuss Leon Thomsen's famous deck of cards from SEG 1986, the controversy surrounding her recent published paper, how anisotropy can be understood by all geophysicists, what would happen if azimuthal P-P seismic measurements reached its full potential, and more. This interview isn't to be missed. Learn more about her tour at https://seg.org/Education/Lectures/Honorary-Lectures/2019-HL-Lynn. Interviewee biography Heloise Bloxsom Lynn is a geophysical consultant and instructor with Petroskills and Nautilus World. She started working in seismic reflection data in 1975, processing U.S. onshore data for Texaco in Houston. Lynn worked for Texaco, Amoco, BP, and then in 1984, she and her husband, Walt, formed Lynn Incorporated. Her consulting experience includes working in North America, Hungary, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Australia, Thailand, China, and Japan. She specializes in the use of 3D multiazimuth and/or multicomponent data to obtain structure, lithology, porosity, pore fluids, in-situ stress, and aligned porosity (aka natural fractures). She also includes conventional VSP data processed for split-shear waves in these projects because there is nearly always a source-generated S-wave or a near-source mode-converted S-wave, and/or mode-conversions at impedance boundaries. In the fall of 2004, she was the SEG/AAPG Distinguished Lecturer, speaking on “The Winds of Change – anisotropic rocks, their preferred direction of fluid flow, and their associated seismic signatures.” She has described her research findings in many oral presentations and in 47 published papers that collectively create an invaluable knowledge base for scientists, researchers, students, teachers, and exploration geophysicists. She earned a BA in geology-math from Bowdoin College, Maine; an MSc in exploration geophysics from Stanford University; and a PhD in geophysics from Stanford University. She is a member of SEG, EAGE, the Geophysical Society of Houston (GSH), AAPG, and SPE. Credits Interview: Heloise Lynn Original music by Zach Bridges.

63: Helping those in harm's way - A GWB story

In 2016, Dr. Ron Harris of Brigham Young University led a Geoscientists Without Borders team to Java, Indonesia to help prepare the community for the next tsunami. For this special Soundoff episode, we showcase Ron Harris' project in Java through a short, richly produced and narrative-driven story that captures the spirit of GWB. In Ron's own words, he highlights the moment when his son changed his geoscience career, the simple tool that brought peace to a community, and the power of working together to improve emergency preparedness. This is not just a story about science making a difference, but the role of preparedness in our everyday lives.

62: Anisotropy without tears featuring Heloise Lynn

In this episode, host Andrew Geary speaks with Heloise Lynn on her upcoming North American Honorary Lecturer tour starting 5 September. Andrew and Heloise discuss Leon Thomsen's famous deck of cards from SEG 1986, the controversy surrounding her recent published paper, how anisotropy can be understood by all geophysicists, what would happen if azimuthal P-P seismic measurements reached its full potential, and more. This interview isn't to be missed. Learn more about her tour at https://seg.org/Education/Lectures/Honorary-Lectures/2019-HL-Lynn. Interviewee biography Heloise Bloxsom Lynn is a geophysical consultant and instructor with Petroskills and Nautilus World. She started working in seismic reflection data in 1975, processing U.S. onshore data for Texaco in Houston. Lynn worked for Texaco, Amoco, BP, and then in 1984, she and her husband, Walt, formed Lynn Incorporated. Her consulting experience includes working in North America, Hungary, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Australia, Thailand, China, and Japan. She specializes in the use of 3D multiazimuth and/or multicomponent data to obtain structure, lithology, porosity, pore fluids, in-situ stress, and aligned porosity (aka natural fractures). She also includes conventional VSP data processed for split-shear waves in these projects because there is nearly always a source-generated S-wave or a near-source mode-converted S-wave, and/or mode-conversions at impedance boundaries. In the fall of 2004, she was the SEG/AAPG Distinguished Lecturer, speaking on “The Winds of Change – anisotropic rocks, their preferred direction of fluid flow, and their associated seismic signatures.” She has described her research findings in many oral presentations and in 47 published papers that collectively create an invaluable knowledge base for scientists, researchers, students, teachers, and exploration geophysicists. She earned a BA in geology-math from Bowdoin College, Maine; an MSc in exploration geophysics from Stanford University; and a PhD in geophysics from Stanford University. She is a member of SEG, EAGE, the Geophysical Society of Houston (GSH), AAPG, and SPE. Credits Interview: Heloise Lynn Original music by Zach Bridges.
