The award will be presented to a groundwater professional who has made an outstanding contribution to the application of hydrogeology, preferentially in developing countries or in support of international development efforts and special attention will be paid to work which h
Our next Critical Issues webinar, “Planning for Coastal Storm & Erosion Hazards”, will take place on Thursday July 6th, 1:30pm EDT/10:30am PDT. This 1.5-hour webinar will focus on efforts to anticipate, mitigate, and respond to coastal storms, erosion, and associated hazards at the federal, state, and local level. Three case studies from around the U.S. will be featured as examples of how coastal hazard planning can evolve over time, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all stages. Registration will open soon on our webinar page.
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.
