Henry W. Posamentier

Henry William Posamentier (born December 4, 1948) is an American geologist. He helped pioneer and develop the modern approach to sequence stratigraphy, blending the disciplines of sedimentology, stratigraphy, and depositional systems analysis, largely within the context of oil and gas exploration. During the past decade he pioneered and popularized the discipline of seismic geomorphology, which, when integrated with seismic geomorphology and seismic stratigraphy, leverages both 2D and 3D seismic data to better understand the paleogeographic distribution of lithologies.

Posamentier was born in Manhattan in New York City, the second son of Austrian-Jewish immigrants. He received his Bachelor of Science in geology in 1970 at the City College of New York. In 1973 he earned his Master of Arts in geology and in 1975 his Ph.D., both from Syracuse.

After a brief career in academia, Posamentier joined the oil and gas industry, working for assorted leading oil and gas firms. He currently works for Chevron Corporation in Houston, Texas.

Posamentier has two sons (Joshua, b. 1976 and Jordan, b. 1978) and three daughters (Michelle, b. 1989, Emilie, b. 1994, and Rebecca, b. 1995). He presently resides with his wife, Ceri, in Houston, Texas.
