Prof. Liner is Department of Geosciences Chair at the University of Arkansas, holds the Maurice F. Storm Chair of Petroleum Geology and served as 2014/5 SEG President.
Liner earned a BS in Geology (U. Arkansas, 1978), MS. in Geophysics (U. Tulsa, 1980), and PhD in Geophysics (Colo. School of Mines, Center for Wave Phenomena, 1989). He has 11 years industrial experience in exploration (Conoco) and geophysical research (Western Geo, Fairfield, Saudi Aramco). From 1990-2004 Liner was a faculty member in Geosciences at The University of Tulsa. In January 2008 he joined the faculty of the University of Houston as Professor and Associate Director of the Allied Geophysical Labs industrial consortium. In fall 2011 he was named Department Associate Chair and Interim Chair in spring 2012.
Prof. Liner’s research interests include Petroleum reservoir characterization and monitoring, CO2 sequestration geophysics, advanced seismic interpretation methods, seismic data analysis and processing, near surface, anisotropy, and seismic wave propagation. He has served as Editor of Geophysics (1999-2001), authored many technical papers, scientific meeting abstracts, The Leading Edge column Seismos (since 1992), and the text book Elements of 3D Seismology soon in 3rd edition. Liner is a member of SEG, AAPG, AGU, EAGE and the European Academy of Sciences.

Public 3D Seismic Interpretation Workshop
I will be teaching this a 3D seismic interpretation workshop in Fayetteville based on the (free) OpendTect software that runs native on windows, mac, or linux. We will be using Geoscience Department PC computers, but you can also run it on a laptop! Hope you can join us. On Monday, I will also be chairing a special session on the Mississippian. Register for 3D workshop here.
Interpretation of 3D Seismic Data with Open Source (free) Software.
Sunday, 16 March, 2014. US$100. Max: 25 Christopher Liner, University of Arkansas.
This one-day short course — designed for those with a general understanding of 3D seismic data — provides an introduction to the free OpendTect seismic interpretation system. The principle objectives for participants are to understand the overall system and support documents, data navigation, display, fundamentals of horizon tracking, and geobody extraction. Each participant is encouraged to bring a USB stick (8GB or larger) to take project results home for further self-study.
We will be learning opendtect using this data set.
