Annual Reveal Student Project Award

As a contribution to the future of the next generation of geophysicists, Shearwater GeoServices have introduced the Reveal Student Project Award.

Students are invited to submit their final year projects, with prizes presented to the seismic processing projects that demonstrate exceptional geophysical understanding and innovative use of the Reveal Software platform.

The awards will run each academic year, all seismic projects are eligible to enter, providing they are part of the student's formal studies and feature processing conducted via the Reveal platform. Shearwater welcomes all academic institutions using Reveal to have students enter.
