Comments from the President of the Dallas Geophysical Society

President's Message for February 2018

As the first day of spring rapidly approaches change is in the air, many of you know our President, Trevor Richards, has taken an opportunity that will take him away from the DFW area. As President-Elect, I will be filling his position for the rest of this term. We wish him all the success moving forward, thank him for his may years of service to our Society. The remaining BOD will continue our commitment to the members of the DGS.

Our recent change of venue to a more central location at Royal Oaks Country Club appears to have been a success and we will continue to reserve this venue moving forward. We will be changing the room for the luncheon with less ambient light so that we are able to better view what is being presented. We are looking forward to Orlando J. Teran's topic on Mapping Reservoir Stress Conditions Using Hydraulic Fracturing Microseismicity on March 15th.  

The Dallas Geological Hosted Joint meeting in February was well attended and we thank them for all their work making it a success. Dr. Lumley's presentation received a large amount of member participation and follow up questions once the luncheon was adjourned. So much, in fact, that we have requested he present to us on April 18th specifically on his Ambient Noise Monitoring work. (This will be a Wednesday instead of our typical Thursday meeting).

I am also pleased to announce we have been organizing and planning a new event for the Spring that we hope to carry on in the future! On Thursday, April 26th, we will host the inaugural Dallas Geophysical Society Sporting Clay Classic at Elm Fork Shooting Sports. Information and details, including sponsorship opportunities, can be found here on the website. Other sponsorships are available in addition to those listed on the website; please contact Amy Pilling for details at

We are currently working with the SEG to bring the 2018 DISC training to Dallas for those who would like to attend. Details to follow.

We would also like to remind everyone to mark their calendars for the Dallas Geological Crawfish Broil on May 10th at Winfrey Point. More specific details to come.

In closing we have an exciting spring session coming up to finish this 2018 term and look forward to seeing all of you at our next luncheon Thursday, March 15th.
