2nd Annual Appalachian Basin Geophysical Symposium

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Bob A. Hardage

The Converted-P Mode: Valuable, already in Your Possession, Not Utilized

Bob A. Hardage received a PhD in physics from Oklahoma State University. His thesis work focused on high-velocity  micro-meteoroid impact on space vehicles, which required trips to Goddard Space Flight Center to do finite-  difference modeling on dedicated computers. Upon completing his university studies, he worked at Phillips  Petroleum Company for 23 years and was Exploration Manager for Asia and Latin America when he left Phillips. He  moved to WesternAtlas and worked 3 years as Vice President of Geophysical Development and Marketing. He then  established a multicomponent seismic research laboratory at the Bureau of Economic Geology and served The  University of Texas at Austin as a Senior Research Scientist for 28 years. He has published books on VSP,cross-well  profiling, seismic stratigraphy, and multicomponent seismic technology. He was the first person to serve 6 years on  the Board of Directors of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). His Board service was as SEG Editor (2  years), followed by 1-year terms as First VP,President Elect, President, and Past President. SEG hasawarded him a  Special Commendation, Life Membership, and Honorary Membership. He wrote the AAPG Explorer column on  geophysics for 6 years. AAPG honored him with a Distinguished Service award for promoting geophysics among the geological community.
