  Albert Tarantola receives the 2018 SEG Maurice Ewing Medal posthumously

Sunday 14 October 2018

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) awarded Albert Tarantola the Maurice Ewing 2018 Medal, its most important distinction, at its 88th International Congress (14-19 October 2018).

 

This renowned geophysicist, who died in 2009 at the age of 60, spent his entire career at the IPGP. He became famous for solving the opposite problems that allowed him to deduce information about the Earth's internal structure from seismic waves.

 

The IPGP teams are proud to see him receive this award today posthumously.
