CREWES at the 1996 SEG Meeting

Once again, CREWES will have a large presence at the Annual SEG Meeting, held this year in Denver, Colorado, from November 10-15. We will be giving nine technical presentations and will have a booth full of posters , with CREWES faculty, staff and students eager to discuss all matter of things geophysical with you. If we can't see you at our Sponsors Meeting then we certainly hope to see you in Denver!

New Editor of The CREWES News: Darren Foltinek

I would just like to take a two minute break from the chaos that reigns here in the weeks leading up to our Sponsors Meeting to introduce myself as the new editor of The CREWES News. I look forward to helping you all keep all in touch with us and the research that we do. I'd also like to thank our previous editor, Sue Miller, for doing such a great job with the newsletter, and wish her all the best at her new job at Shell Canada.

Correction: The abstract presented in last month's newsletter was from Helen Isaac's Ph.D. dissertation, and not from her M.Sc.

Geophysics 647: Geophysical Signal Analysis - Theory and Computation

Winter Session of 1997, beginning January 14. Lecture: Tuesdays 5-7:30 pm ES 615 Laboratory: Thursdays 5-7:30pm ES 213

Note: enrollment limit of 12 students.

Subject material: Convolution and Green's functions * Z transform theory * Fourier transform theory, DFT, FFT * Digital filter theory * Differentiation and integration filters * Interpolation methods * Wavelets, inverse operators, and minimum phase * Hilbert transforms * Wiener filters and least squares methods * Power spectral estimation * Multidimensional Fourier and Radon transforms * Instantaneous phase, frequency, and magnitude * Nonstationary (time-frequency) analysis * The uncertainty principle * The short-time Fourier transform (spectrogram) * Wigner distributions * Wavelet transforms

Assumed background: First year Calculus, complex variables, university physics (the more the better), and at least one introductory geophysics course. If you lack the exposure to geophysics but are well versed in another physical science, you should still find the material accessible though the technical jargon may present an initial problem.
