Ikon Science's Director of Research and Innovation, Michael Kemper, completed his SEG Europe Honorary Lecture tour and received recognition during the SEG Honors and Awards Evening last month. The video recording of the lecture “Infusing rock physics into seismic inversion” is now available to view on the SEG website*.
The official SEG tour reached approximately 1100 geophysicists and students at 25 locations throughout Europe. In addition, Michael presented his lecture at other locations in Europe, the Middle East and the USA.
Pierre Esquier of Total in Pau, France said, “The lecture was brilliant and very well adapted for non-expert geoscientists: it was pedagogical, clear, reminded the fundamentals and gave a global picture.”
Michael Kemper commented - “It has been a great honour to be able to be a part of the SEG European Honorary Lecture programme and to support the work of the SEG. I also like to acknowledge the excellent relationship we have with CSIRO (in particular Dr. James Gunning), our partners in developing the Joint Impedance & Facies Inversion (Ji-Fi) technology. Together we have solved the most ubiquitous problem in seismic inversion, i.e. the construction of the elusive low-frequency model. Our revolutionary approach of over-specifying the low-frequency information and letting the algorithm determine the low-frequency model is clearly the right solution, in that we are able to convince our clients, the ultimate judges of this technology. And there is a lot more to come out of the Ji-Fi kitchen…!”
