SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) in Australia

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists is bringing its 2017 Distinguished Short Course (DISC) programme to Australia.

Traveling worldwide, the SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) is an eight hour, one-day short course on a topic of current and wide-spread interest.

The 2017 DISC course covers Fundamentals and Applications of Electromagnetic Geophysics. Local case histories pertaining to problems in resource exploration, including oil and gas, minerals, water, environmental, and geotechnical areas will be used as motivation for investigating fundamentals of electromagnetics. The aim of this course is to equip participants with sufficient fundamental understanding and resources about EM geophysics so that they can decide if an EM technique can help solve their problem, select which type of survey to employ, and set realistic expectations for what information can be gleaned.

Perth: 28 July
Adelaide: August 3
Brisbane: August 8

A webinar session will also be presented.

All past DISC courses can also be listed to on-line.  Click here for more information.

AIG commends SEG on this great initiative.
