In this episode, host Andrew Geary speaks with Heloise Lynn on her upcoming North American Honorary Lecturer tour starting 5 September. Andrew and Heloise discuss Leon Thomsen's famous deck of cards from SEG 1986, the controversy surrounding her recent published paper, how anisotropy can be understood by all geophysicists, what would happen if azimuthal P-P seismic measurements reached its full potential, and more. This interview isn't to be missed. Learn more about her tour at https://seg.org/Education/Lectures/Honorary-Lectures/2019-HL-Lynn. Interviewee biography Heloise Bloxsom Lynn is a geophysical consultant and instructor with Petroskills and Nautilus World.
