Dr. Alan Dutton addresses field trip participants.

Researcher Dr. Alan R. Dutton attended the New Mexico Geological Society's 52nd Annual Fall Field Trip on September 27–29, 2001, which focused on the geology of the Llano Estacado. Alan gave two outcrop presentations to the 90+ trip participants, drawing on his work of the hydrogeology and paleohydrology of the U.S. High Plains and the Ogallala aquifer. The photo was taken at an Ogallala Formation outcrop near Adrian, Texas. Photo by Lew Rosenberg. 10/02/01

The Advisory Committee to the Bureau of Economic Geology met at Bureau headquarters on Thursday, September 27, 2001, for its annual fall meeting.

The Bureau welcomes UT graduate Paul Murray to its growing team of researchers. Paul moved from Houston, Texas, where he worked as a geophysicist for PGS Geophysical, to carry out multicomponent seismic research with Senior Research Scientist Bob A. Hardage. Paul earned his B.S. in Geology at UT and in 1999 graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a M.S. degree in Geophysics. 09/19/01

Bureau Research Scientist Dr. Jim W. Jennings was the speaker at the Friday morning seminar on September 21, 2001, at 8:30 a.m. The title of his presentation was "Predicting Permeability From Well Logs in Carbonates With a Link to Geology for Interwell Permeability Mapping." [Abstract] 09/17/01


Martin Jackson and Michael Hudec

Research Scientist Dr. Michael R. Hudec spent September 6–7, 2001 discussing common research interests with Applied Geodynamics Laboratory (AGL) member PanCanadian in Calgary, Canada. Mike spent time with PanCanadian geoscientists looking at salt tectonics and prospects in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Senior Research Scientist Dr. Martin P. A. Jackson spent August 2731, 2001 discussing common research interests with Applied Geodynamics Laboratory (AGL) member Woodside Energy in Perth, Western Australia. In addition to giving a short course on salt tectonics and a talk on AGL research in the Kwanza Basin (Angola). Martin spent time with Woodside geoscientists looking at basins and prospects in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore Northwest Australia, and offshore Northwest Africa. 09/14/01

David R. Maidment, Ashley H. Priddy Centennial Professor of Engineering and Director of the Center for Research in Water Resources, was the guest speaker at the Bureau's Friday morning seminar on September 14, 2001, at 8:30 a.m. The title of his presentation was "Texas Integrated Water Simulation System." [Abstract] 09/10/01

Visiting Scientist Alberto Ortiz Fernández, from Ecopetrol, the state oil company of Colombia, is working with the Fracture Research and Application Consortium on techniques for the characterization of fractured carbonates. Dr. Ortiz Fernández will be at the Bureau for six weeks. 09/05/01

Bureau researchers Dave Jennette, Khaled Fouad, and Dallas Dunlap, together with co-contributors Arturo Soto-Cuervo and Rafael Múñoz Vergara of PEMEX, are presenting "Uncovering New Reserves in a Complex Stratigraphic Environment, Onshore Southern Mexico" on September 10-11, 2001, at the SEG conference in San Antonio. This presentation, hosted by Landmark Graphics, is a demonstration of integrated seismic study results generated using a suite of Landmark applications. Their demonstration will be repeated throughout the day. 08/22/01

Professor Robert H. Tatham presented "Breaking Down Barriers to Effective Use of Multi-Component Seismic Data" at the Bureau's Friday morning seminar on September 7, 2001, at 8:30 a.m. His presentation arose from his Spring 2001 tour as an SEG Distinguished Lecturer. He is currently professor of Exploration Geophysics in the Department of Geological Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin. [Abstract] 09/04/01
