This year, I serve as President of SEG, and I am beginning to see that things are going to be busy, but the “Seismos” column in The Leading Edge is mentioned by a surprising number of geophysicists I meet around the world. It would not do to have a whole year go by without “Seismos,” so I will be using flashbacks — ideas and information I have shared with a few people but not with the worldwide TLE readership.
