EEGS Seeks FastTIMES Editor-in-Chief #geophysics

The Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) has an immediate opening for an editor for FastTIMES. The e-magazine is downloaded over 14,000 times a year, and it showcases novel uses of near-surface geophysics in a manner that is intended to be interesting to geophysicists as well as accessible to others who may be interested in using geophysics. 

EEGS Explores the Subsurface with Muons

Cover of the December Issue of FastTImes
Geoscientists are exploring how to best apply muons in geophysical research. In the most recent issue of the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) publication FastTimes featured research using muons in geoscience to image the subsurface, and subsurface structures and possibly as a tool to assess density and elasticity in seismic surveys. 

Carbon Capture and Sequestion Workshop in Trondheim, Norway

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the European Association for Geoscientists and Engineers will be hosting a workshop on geophysical monitoring of carbon capture and sequestration. Following a successful workshop in 2009, this workshop will explore the developments and improvements in monitoring approaches such as fiber-optic sensing (downhole and at surface), seismic methods (e.g.

Dr. Hiroo Kanamori, Seismologist & Geophysicist, Recognized as the 2015 Marcus Milling Legendary Geoscientist

The American Geosciences Institute is pleased to recognize Dr. Hiroo Kanamori with the Marcus Milling Legendary Geoscientist Medal at the 2015 American Association of Petroleum Geologists Annual Convention and Exposition. Kanamori has been described as "a towering figure in seismology and geophysics."

#TBT - September 1983 Geotimes

September 1983 cover of Geotimes

The September 1983 issue of Geotimes (now EARTH Magazine) featured a cover with an image celebrating when the Smithsonian Institution put its collection of fossils from the Burgess Shale on display for the first time at the National Museum of Natural History. The caption reads as follows: "This year for the first time, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History has put on display specimens from its unequaled collection of fossils from the Burgess Shale (British Columbia). At the entrance to Dinosaur Hall, a diorama, shown in part of the cover of this issue, recreates the muddy bottom where those creatures lived at the base of an algal reef. A clutch of arthropods (Canadaspis perfecta) crawls up the slope on the right where mud has slumped from the terrace, the fatal weakness that will bury—and preserve—an entire population of Middle Cambrian shallow marine fauna. Sponges cling to the reef face. (photo by Chip Clark, the Smithsonian Institution)"
