Comments from the President of the Dallas Geophysical Society

January 2020 President's Letter

Dear Members,

Happy New Year from the Dallas Geophysical Society Board of Directors!

The holidays passed us quickly, but not before The Dallas Geological Society hosted the Holiday Party & Casino Night at Gilley’s Dallas. The event had great attendance from our local societies and included an assortment of food, drinks, music, casino games, prizes, and spectacular views of the Dallas skyline. Be sure to thank Dylan Collins for putting together such a wonderful and memorable experience.

Don’t forget, we changed the luncheon schedule quite a bit this year and we’re working with the Dallas Geological Society to provide a great slate of talks for 2019-2020. To this end, we are taking turns hosting our luncheons this term with the following schedule remaining:

  • JAN 2020 - Dallas Geophysical Society
  • FEB 2020 - Dallas Geological Society
  • MAR 2020 - Dallas Geophysical Society
  • APR 2020 - Dallas Geological Society
  • MAY 2020 - Dallas Geophysical Society

Our next luncheon is coming up quickly on Tuesday, January 14th. Our speaker, David Lubo-Robles, is giving an exciting talk on Attribute selection and supervised seismic facies classification using Probabilistic Neural Networks. Please be sure to register on our website so we can have an accurate headcount for catering:

Also, the Dallas Geological Society will host their monthly International Dinner & Meeting next Wednesday, January 8th, at Brookhaven Country Club, where Nancy J. House, Integrated Geophysical Interpretation, Inc. and SEG Past President (2017-18), will give her talk Maximizing Value from Investment in Geophysics: Expensive Luxury or Cheap Insurance? Be sure to register here:

Also, don’t forget to save-the-date for our Second Annual Sporting Clay Classic to be held at Elm Fork Shooting Sports on Saturday, April 4, 2020. Mark it down now! Registration and sponsorship information will go out very soon. We expect registration numbers to grow significantly from last year, so please be sure to plan your budgets now!

Time flies by quickly and it won’t be long before our President-Elect, Ruth Hammans, will need to fill her Dallas Geophysical Society Board of Directors for 2020-2021. Please take some time to consider the impact you will have on your local geophysical community by volunteering your time to the society. There are many different capacities in which you can serve!

We look forward to seeing you again at our next luncheon on Tuesday, January 14!
