Mines Geophysics Research Assistant Professor Eileen MartinDr. Eileen Martin has received the prestigious J. Clarence Karcher Award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

This award was established “[t]o honor the memory of J. Clarence Karcher and his enormous contribution to exploration geophysics, the J. Clarence Karcher Award is awarded in recognition of significant contributions to the science and technology of exploration geophysics by a young geophysicist of outstanding abilities who merits such recognition.”

The SEG Honors and Awards Committee noted: “Dr. Eileen Martin has made unique, significant, and innovative contributions in the use of fiber systems for recording seismic energy across a broad range of applications. Her work on surface wave interferometry is considered pioneering and a standard reference for industrial applications. Martin is credited with being the first to use existing telecommunication infrastructure to successfully gather active, passive, and ambient noise data using DAS. […] At this very early stage of her career, Martin’s published oeuvre have citation rates beyond most late career researchers and indicative of the significance her peers place on her scientific discoveries.”

Congratulations, Dr. Martin!
