Earth Science Blogs
Agile Geosciences is a Canadian geo-consulting company. Matt Hall and Evan Bianco blog about seismics and geoscience in general. It’s a high-value blog and absolutely worth a subscription.
Matteo Nicoli blogs about seismic imaging and geophysical visualization.
Mika McKinnon a geophysicist by profession manages the space section of io9.
Initially started as a Facebook page, The Earth Story is a several-author blog showing beautiful sites all over the earth. You can find my older content from that site here.
A Tumblr blog about Fluid Dynamics. Not Earth Science in a strict sense, but closely related to many issues in volcanology and fluid motion.
The All-Geo Geoblogfeed syndicates a significant number of geoscience blogs.
The Society for Exploration Geophysicists is mainly active in the USA. It is the biggest society for exploration geoscience.
The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers brings together international professionals and academics in the Earth Science segment.
The European Geoscience Union is a more geologically inclined European association.
The American Geophysical Union is the US American geophysics assocation.
The German Geophysical Association is a German association for geophysicists.
The German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam conducts leading edge research in different sections. They were involved in the deployment of a tsunami early warning system after the devastating Sumatra earthquake. The pursuit of excellence dates back to Prussian times. It is funded by the German government.
The Center for Wave Phenomena is associated with the Colorado School of Mines. It is an interdisciplinary seismic research centre with consortium funding. The CWP maintains the Seismic Unix package.
The Delft-based Delphi Consortium has gained international attention developing the Surface-Related Multiple Elimination (SRME) algorithm, which is considered an industry standard in seismic multiple removal. They are consortium funded from major NOCs, IOCs and service providers. They are divided in three main research projects Acquisition & Preprocessing (A&P), Multiple Utilization & Structural Imaging (M&I) and Dynamic Characterization and Reservoir Monitoring (C&M).
The Germany-based international Wave Inversion Technologies (WIT) consortium focuses on Common Reflection Surface (CRS) research, NIP wave tomography and Full Wave Inversion (FWI).
