The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) faculty and students made an impact at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) International Exposition and 83rd Annual Meeting in many ways, including poster presentations, talks, an exhibit and an outreach event.

The department’s Professional M.S. Programs organized and ran the University of Houston EAS exhibit at the SEG meeting held in Houston, September 22-27, 2013. The Allied Geophysical Laboratories (AGL) staff and EAS students provided assistance setting up and working at the booth.

The annual SEG event is one of the largest international meetings of geophysicists held in North America. This year, it was attended by more than 11,000 professionals and students – the largest attendance in the history of the society. Students and faculty of the EAS Department presented 48 posters and talks at the meeting that are listed at: http://eas.uh.edu/news-events/assoc-meetings/SEG/index.php.

UH EAS organized and conducted the Applied Science Education Day at the George R. Brown Convention Center attended by 200 high school students from the Houston area. The program included many hands-on activities that engaged the interest and sparked the enthusiasm of all participants. The effort was made possible through the hard work of 20 EAS graduate students and the AGL staff who volunteered for the education day.
