Speaker Biographies:
Don Herron received a B.S. (with honors) in geological sciences from Brown University and a M.S. in geological sciences from the California Institute of Technology. He was a seismic interpreter at Texaco, Gulf, and Sohio/BP. Following retirement from BP he was a geoscience consultant for PGS and a seismic interpretation instructor for several major oil companies. He was co-instructor for the SEG Continuing Education course "Seismic Interpretation in the Exploration Domain", a member of the Editorial Board of The Leading Edge (TLE) (chairman 2006-2007), an Assistant Editor for the joint SEG-AAPG journal Interpretation, and wrote TLE's "Interpreter Sam" column (2003-2019).

Bob Wegner received a B.S. in geology from Queens College, a M.S. in geophysics from Lehigh University, and a Ph.D. in geophysics from Rice University. Bob retired from ExxonMobil's Upstream Research Company after developing quantitative seismic interpretation tools and techniques. He has taught petroleum exploration at Rice University and the University of Texas' Continuing Education Department, is a short course instructor for the SEG and AAPG in Basic Seismic Interpretation, has been a member and chairman of the SEG Continuing Education Committee, and is a reviewer for the special session of the joint SEG-AAPG journal Interpretation dealing with seismic Interpretation pitfalls.
