EAGE statement

on Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria

From Jean-Marc Rodriguez, president EAGE

The EAGE community is deeply saddened by the catastrophic earthquakes in Turkey and Syria causing untold loss of life and destruction. Our deepest sympathies go to the people of both countries in the face of this natural disaster, which has a particular poignancy for our geoscientist colleagues in the region. Let us hope that reparations and the road to recovery from this human tragedy can be implemented as speedily as possible.




Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
