100 Years of Science
Fueling 100 Years of Prosperity

All students and faculty attending the convention are invited to the AAPG/SEPM Student Reception. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments while mingling with your peers. An introduction will be given by an ExxonMobil representative before the top three poster authors from the Shell sponsored “Selected Academic Research Topics: Student Presentations” receive awards. The Jim Hartman Service to Students Award will be conveyed to AAPG recipients(s) who contributed exceptional service to AAPG’s student programs. The awards program continues with the presentation of the Schlumberger sponsored Outstanding Student Chapter awards, the Student Chapter YouTube Video competition and recognition of the Imperial Barrel Award team.

How Seismic and Sequence Stratigraphy Have Advanced: 40 Years after AAPG Memoir 26 and 30 Years after SEPM Special Publication 42

In honor of the 100th Anniversary of AAPG, and in recognition of major contributions to the science of basin analysis and worldwide exploration, the ACE 2017 SEPM Annual Symposium will be jointly sponsored by SEPM and AAPG with a focus on the historical contributions, advances in and future of the science of sequence and seismic stratigraphy. This symposium is prompted by the 40th anniversary of the publication of AAPG memoir 26 and SEPM Special Publication 42, both seminal compendiums that captured the rapidly evolving science of basin stratigraphy and global implications for stratigraphic understanding, as well as forging linkages between stratigraphy, sedimentology and geomorphology. The oral session, which includes invited talks from R. Mitchum, K. Bohacs, R. Sarg, H. Posamentier, G. Eberli and a raft of other prominent names in both research and application of these concepts, will be followed the next day with a poster session on the theme on Wednesday, April 4.

SEPM President Vitor Abreu invites you to an evening of celebration to honor the 2017 award winners of SEPM – Society for Sedimentary Geology – and a great event to network and visit with colleagues old and new. The Twenhofel Medal, the highest award of SEPM given in recognition of a career of outstanding contributions to sedimentary geology, will be presented to Judith A. McKenzie. SEPM Honorary Membership, given for both scientific contributions and service to the society, will be awarded to Don McNeill. The other science award recipients are Lynn Wright, who will receive the Francis P. Shepard Medal in recognition of excellence in marine geology; Susan Kidwell, the Raymond C. Moore Medal in recognition of excellence in paleontology; Steve Graham, the Pettijohn Medal for excellence in sedimentology & stratigraphy; and Jake Covault, the Wilson Award for excellence in sedimentary geology by an early career geoscientist.

SEPM will also honor the recipients of the Outstanding Paper Awards for both of its journals: Journal of Sedimentary Research and PALAIOS. SEPM will also recognize the Outstanding Student Presentation Awards from the 2017 Annual Meeting, where cash prizes will be presented to the top student presenters from the SEPM Student Awards Poster Session scheduled for Monday at Houston, sponsored by Nexen. As always, SEPM will recognize the members of the 2017 Annual Meeting Organizing Committee, without whom the meeting could not take place, and SEPM Foundation Student Grant recipients. The reception will begin at 7:00 p.m., with cocktails available at cash bars and substantial hors d’oeuvres. The awards ceremony will start at 7:30 p.m.
