Geosciences are the core of the energy transition. It is within geological formations that high value oil and gas, a critical enabler, has formed, is explored for, and exploited. It is also within geological formations that wind turbines are founded, carbon dioxide will be stored, and other energy sources and critical minerals are found. Industry geoscientists will be highly relevant in the transition as only industry has the industrial capacity, technical and commercial human resources, financial capability, and project execution skills to facilitate the energy transition.
The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Student Chapter (SC) at the University of Pisa (UNIPI) was founded in 2009 with the support of the Emeritus Professor Alfredo Mazzotti, President of the master’s degree course in Exploration and Applied Geophysics at UNIPI, at the time.
Congratulation to Laura Bornatici elected as SEG District 7 Representative!
The SEG Student Chapter of the University of Naples Federico II was founded in 2006 in Naples. Prof. Maurizio Fedi, full professor of applied geophysics at the Department of Earth, Environmental and Resources Sciences, is still its faculty advisor.
