AAPG Joins SEG In Publishing New Journal For Interpreters

TULSA, Okla., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the world's largest professional geological society, will join with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), the largest international society dedicated to applied geophysics, in the publication of a new, peer-reviewed journal for advancing the practice of subsurface interpretation.

INTERPRETATION will comprise papers directly related to the practice of interpretation of the Earth's subsurface for exploration and extraction of mineral resources and for environmental and engineering applications.

The journal, a peer-reviewed quarterly, was announced in October by SEG, which is the operator. The first issue will be completed in August and will include a special section on interpreting stratigraphy from geophysical data. The second issue, scheduled for November completion, will include a special section on interpretation for unconventional resources. Submissions are closed for those two issues. Submissions are open for the February 2014 issue, which will include special sections on seismic attributes and pore-pressure prediction and detection.

"This journal will provide a valuable forum for the interpretation community and an opportunity for members of this community with AAPG and SEG affiliations to work together," said AAPG Editor Steve Laubach.

The journal aims to accelerate innovation in interpretation for resource exploration, exploitation, and environmental stewardship.

"The participation of AAPG promises to enhance greatly the journal's potential in advancing the shared art of interpretation geologists and geophysicists," said former SEG Editor Yonghe Sun, editor-in-chief of INTERPRETATION.

An INTERPRETATION article is not required to contain an interpretation but should help advance the practice of interpretation. Articles that describe interpretation methods and applications involving integration of multiple data sets to quantify as well as visualize subsurface structure are strongly encouraged.
