Dr. Curtis Link, Professor Emeritus, Geophysics

Professor Link earned a BA (1971) in Physics from the University of Iowa, a BS (1985) in Geophysical Engineering from Montana Tech, and a Ph.D. (1993) in Geophysics from the University of Houston. He has been a faculty member in the Geophysical Engineering Department at Montana Tech since 1994 and chaired the department from 1999 to 2002 and again intermittently from 2006 to present. Prior to coming to Montana Tech, Dr. Link taught junior high in math and science in Iowa for two years. After graduating from Montana Tech, he spent three years in China and southeast Asia doing land and marine seismic data acquisition and processing for GSI (Geophysical Services, Inc.) subsequently Halliburton Geophysical Services. He then transferred to the HGS office in Houston where he worked on processing of 3-D seismic data from North Slope, Alaska. While in Houston, he did his graduate work in crosswell tomography at the University of Houston's Allied Geophysical Laboratories. His current research interests are neural networks applications in reservoir characterization, UXO and other areas and seismic land streamer applications for shallow investigations. Dr. Link is a member of SEG, EAGE, EEGS, AGU, INNS and AAPG. His outside interests include pursuing the wily trout, biking, skiing, martial arts and convincing his wife to let him do regular upgrades of his hi-fi system (tubes and vinyl rule!).
