The present site is a collection of resources for rock physicists and those who use the results of rock physics in their work.
Thursday October 22, 2015, following the 2015 SEG Convention, there will be a half-day post-convention workshop on the "Rock and Fluid Properties (In Celebration of The Career of Mike Batzle)" organized by John Castagna, Zhizhing Wang, De-Hua Han, Nader Dutta, Ronny Hofmann, Manika Prasad, and Azra Tutuncu. The purpose of this workshop is to celebrate the scientific contributions of Mike Batzle who passed away early this year. Although known primarily for his work with fluid properties, Mike was a pioneer in a number of different areas of rock physics including Vp/Vs relationships, outcrop studies, attenuation and dispersion, low frequency measurements, soft sediments and shale measurements, and rock mechanical properties. Presentations from those who worked closely with him and from others working in related areas will be made in the spirit of fostering the kind of pure scientific curiosity that Mike embodied. It is hoped that these presentations will inspire further research in the very fertile area of rock physics.

Friday October 23, 2015, following the 2015 SEG Convention, there will be a full-day post-convention workshop on the "Physics of Rocks" organized by Colin Sayers, Arthur Cheng, Kyle Spikes, and Boris Gurevich. The typical use of the term "rock physics" in the oil and gas industry refers to the measurement, modeling, and interpretation of elastic wave propagation in sedimentary rocks. However, “physics of rocks” includes other physical characteristics of rocks that are not addressed in most rock physics workshops. Those rock properties include, but are not necessarily limited to, the electric and dielectric , nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), transport , thermal, and geomechanical properties. The 2015 SEG post-convention workshop on the “Physics of Rocks” will seek to address these topics alongside the physics that enables elastic properties to be inverted for rock and fluid properties. The workshop will explore theoretical models and experimental observations of physical phenomena that define physical properties of rocks and relationships between these properties. Please contact any of the organizers if you are interested in participating.
