SEG's Honorary Membership is granted to a highly select group of geophysicists, with just one recipient in many of the years since the award's inception in 1930. Honorary Membership is conferred after unanimous vote of SEG's Honors and Awards Committee and the Board of Directors.
Official recognition of Professor Rector's award will take place in October, during SEG’s 2020 Annual Meeting in
Houston. Congratulations to Professor Rector on this significant career milestone!
