Had a nice chat with Gerry Schuster of KAUST about many things, including interesting work he is doing with hominid researchers in Africa. Maybe I'll tag along sometime to see if I can help. Also enjoyed hearing about his small scale field experiments on noise, interferometry and surface wave inversion. Might try it myself in the hills of Arkansas.
Spent some quality time with Bill Symes (Rice Inversion Project) who deservedly won the EAGE 2015 Erasmus Award. Well done Bill!
Tonight is a dinner for parties involved with the AAPG/SEG ICE 2016 in Barcelona. REPSOL is always a key player in Spanish meetings and I look forward to talking to their representatives over wine and tapas.
