Biography

Education

Larry Lines  received B.Sc. and M.Sc. geophysics degrees from the University of Alberta (1971, 1973) and a Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of British Columbia (1976).     

Career

His industrial career included 17 years with Amoco in Calgary and Tulsa (1976-1993). Following a career in industry, Dr. Lines held the NSERC/Petro-Canada Chair in Applied Seismology at Memorial University of Newfoundland (1993-1997) and the Chair in Exploration Geophysics at the University of Calgary (1997-2002). From 2002-2007, he served as the Head, Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Calgary.

In professional service, Larry was the President of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in 2008-2009. Previous to that, he served the SEG as Geophysics Editor (1977-99), Distinguished Lecturer, Geophysics Associate Editor, Translations Editor, Publications Chairman, and as a member of The Leading Edge Editorial Board. He has served as CJEG Editor twice. Larry and co-authors have won the SEG's Best Paper in Geophysics Award twice (1988, 1995) and have twice won Honorable Mention for Best Paper (1986,1998).

Honors and Affiliations

Larry is an Honorary Member of SEG, CSEG, and the Geophysical Society of Tulsa. Additionally, he is a member of APEGGA, CGU, EAGE, and AAPG. Larry is married with two children, and enjoys hobbies of choir, softball, and hiking with his Alaskan malamute.

Remembering Larry Lines
by Bernhard Mayer (U of C geoscience head) and Don Lawton, November 26, 2019

It is with profound sadness, that we share the news that our dear colleague Larry Lines passed away last night after a short illness.

Larry joined the Department of Geology & Geophysics in 1997 after receiving degrees from the University of Alberta (BSc) and UBC (PhD), after 17 years in industry with Amoco, and after a stint as Research Chair at Memorial University (St. John's, Newfoundland). Throughout his career, he published more than 50 peer-reviewed journal papers and hundreds of refereed conference contributions that are frequently cited in the academic community and widely utilized by industry practitioners. From 1997 to 2002, Larry held the CSEG Chair in Exploration Geophysics at the University of Calgary. Furthermore, he served as Director of the research consortium CHORUS and was Associate Director of CREWES and the Fold-Fault Research Project (FRP) and co-generated several million dollars in research funds. From 2002 to 2007, Larry was head of the Department of Geology & Geophysics. During his tenure at the University of Calgary, he instructed six different undergraduate courses in two different departments and taught four different graduate courses. He supervised or co-supervised a highly impressive number of 73 (!) graduate students. This is clear evidence that Larry has made tremendous contributions to research, teaching, mentoring and service in the Department of Geoscience and the Faculty of Science and to fostering the international reputation of the Geophysics program at the University of Calgary.

Of equal importance are Larry's outstanding research collaborations with industry partners through various industrial consortia and his leadership roles in professional societies. His numerous conference presentations and publications ensured that new academic knowledge was rapidly taken up in practical applications in industry. This activity also ensured that the Department of Geoscience remained well connected with industrial leaders in the community, and with the companies that provided employment for countless Geoscience undergraduate and graduate students. Larry also had an exemplary record of service to his scientific discipline Exploration Seismology. For example, he served as both Editor and President of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists and as co-editor of the Canadian Journal of Exploration Geophysics, among various other appointments. In recognition of his extraordinary services he received many awards and honours including the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Presidential Award and the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG) medal in 2017. This is clear evidence that Larry has made tremendous research and teaching contributions over more than two decades at this institution, and that he provided dedicated services on and off campus throughout his tenure at the University of Calgary.

And of most importance to us, Larry was a tremendous academic citizen, a great human being and friend, and a truly kind man.  We cannot remember a single occasion where Larry was asked to take on a duty or task, where he would not have said with a happy face "yes of course, I would be glad to take on this responsibility"!

Larry will be sadly missed, and our deepest condolences go out to Larry's family, his colleagues, students and friends.

His industrial career included 17 years with Amoco in Calgary and Tulsa (1976-1993). Following a career in industry, Dr. Lines held the NSERC/Petro- Canada Chair in Applied Seismology at Memorial University of Newfoundland (1993- 1997) and the Chair in Exploration Geophysics at the University of Calgary (1997-2002).

Larry and co-authors have won SEG's Best Paper in Geophysics Award twice (1988, 1995) and have twice won Honorable Mention for Best Paper (1986,1998). Larry is an Honorary Member of SEG, CSEG, and the Geophysical Society of Tulsa; additionally, he is a member of APEGGA, CGU, EAGE, and AAPG. Larry has also been the director of Chorus, an industry-university consortium for research in the area of oil sands geophysics. He has supervised and mentored hundreds of undergraduates and graduate students. Today, many of them occupy key technical position in industry.

From the foregoing narrative, it is clear to us that Larry has accumulated an exceptional record as a researcher and educator. He has also provided priceless service to our society and to our sister society SEG. However, Larry is not only a brilliant geophysicist and an outstanding educator. He is also a great person. His humility goes hand in hand with collegiality. The latter makes him a member of our society of whom we are all proud to have as a colleague.
