Registration is first come first served, with preference given to geophysics students. 

Throughout the field trip, the students will be exposed to the aspects of seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation. This will involve an acquisition demo, a workshop illustrating a modern seismic data processing workflow, and talks / workshops on seismic interpretation. The last day will include a tour of geologically significant outcrops in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, guided by professionals.

Students will gain perspective on the various career opportunities within the field of geophysics, and it will help bridge the gap between their education and the work they will be performing after they graduate. GIFT is an excellent opportunity to network with established, industry professionals, and students from across Canada.
