Dr. Rui Zhang, as an assistant professor with joint appointment between
School of Geosciences and Department of Physics, has recently received
a prestige award of the Best Paper in INTERPRETATION 2017 for his paper
"Time-variant wavelet extraction with a local-attribute-based
timefrequency decomposition for seismic inversion" co-authored with Dr.
Sergey Fomel from the University of Texas at Austin, published in
Volume 5, No. 1, February 2017. The paper introduced an innovative
method to generate time-varying wavelets by using a spectral
decomposition technique, which can benefit seismic inverion for
improved resolution. The award will be presented officially during the
SEG Annual meeting in Anaheim, CA, USA in October.
The journal INTERPRETATION, published quarterly in print and online,
aims to accelerate innovation in interpretation for resource
exploration, exploitation, and environmental stewardship.
Interpretation is jointly published by the American Association of
Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Exploration
Geophysicists (SEG), which publishs about 150 papers every year.
