SEG Wavelets is the University of Houston's SEG student chapter. It is devoted to promoting education in exploration geophysics. We work with professional organizations, industry professionals, University of Houston faculty, and other student organizations to bring  students educational, social, and possible future employment opportunities. We invite professionals to give lectures on exploration geophysics at UH, outreach to schools and museums in Houston for geoscience education and organize workshops on O&G exploration. More details can be found on our [http://segwavelets.uh.edu/ website].

== Prepare your computer before Friday, April 21st ==
+
Before the first day, you should install Madagascar on your computer.  You can install the development version or the new stable version 2.0.  Madagascar should install easily on a Mac or on Linux. For installation on Windows under Cygwin, see [[Windows|instructions]].
+
 
+
If you want you can run on a virtual machine.  Using a virtual machine is a good way to sample Madagascar, especially if you do not want to install Linux on your Window computer.  On one test the elapse time was 15% longer.  You can easily move from Linux window to windows on the Window system.  When you are completed with Madagascar you can delete the virtual machine and all data associated.  Installation is described on the wiki page: [[running madagascar on a virtual machine]].
