About First Break

First Break is the leading publication in Europe serving the geoscience and engineering community, published each month. 

While the main emphasis is on the oil and gas E&P industry, reflecting the membership of the EAGE, the magazine increasingly includes coverage of important related areas, such as environmental geoscience and mining. In order to emphasize the multidisciplinary character of the association, each  issue has a different special topic. 

As a result First Break has a circulation that extends well beyond the membership of EAGE and is read worldwide as an authoritative source of relevant news, features, analysis, and accessible technical information.

The current Editor-in-Chief of First Break is Gwenola Michaud.

You can find more information on how to get published in First Break here and more details on the submission portal here

Technical articles and special topics published in First Break are available to EAGE members on EarthDoc.


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.
