The CSEG is pleased to support the Distinguished Lecture Tour. This is a national lecture tour sponsored by the CSEG Foundation and presented by a distinguished member of the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG). The goal is to promote the science and application of geophysics to those working with, studying, and interested in the science of geophysics and highlights a topic of current interest.
