The present site is a collection of resources for rock physicists and those who use the results of rock physics in their work.
A post-convention workshop on the "Integration of petrophysics, rock physics, and lab measurements" took place following the 2013 SEG Annual Meeting. The list of presentations is available here.
The September 2013 meeting of the Rock Physics Special Interest Group of the Geophysical Society of Houston featured a talk by Nishank Saxena (Stanford University) on "Change in P-Wave Velocity upon Change in Pore-Fill Properties". Abstract is available here.As a result of the vote by the participants of 2IWRP, the 3rd International Workshop on Rock Physics (3IWRP) will take place in Perth, Australia in 2015.
The 2nd International Workshop on Rock Physics (2IWRP) took place in Southampton, U.K., August 4-9, 2013. See the technical program for the list of presentations.
Selected papers from 1IWRP have been published in a special issue of Geophysical Prospecting on Rock Physics for Reservoir Exploration, Characterisation and Monitoring
The March 2013 meeting of the Rock Physics Special Interest Group of the Geophysical Society of Houston featured a talk by Leon Thomsen (University of Houston and Delta Geophysics) "On the Fluid Dependence of the Parameters of Anisotropy". Abstract is available here.
The January 2013 meeting of the Rock Physics Special Interest Group of the Geophysical Society of Houston featured a talk by Michael A. Payne on "Reflections on Rock Physics Modeling and Fluid/Solid Substitution". Abstract is available here.
The 1st International Workshop on Rock Physics (1IWRP) took place at the Colorado School of Mines, August 7-12, 2011. See the technical agenda for the list of presentations. Many of the abstracts and several of the presentations and posters are available here. Evan Bianco's notes from the workshop can be found by clicking on the following links:
