Are you attending the Geological Society of America (GSA) annual meeting in Seattle this year? If so, please join us on the morning of Wednesday October 25th for an exciting Pardee symposium, "Earth Anatomy Revealed: Geologic Mapping for Our Future". Details on this Pardee Symposium can be found at http://bit.ly/EarthAnatomyPardee.
The Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst, generally called “The Sinkhole Conference,” is the longest-running international conference of its type. Since 1984, engineers, geologists, hydrologists, land managers, biologists, and many others have gathered at these meetings to exchange cutting-edge information on karst and its many benefits and challenges. Abstracts may be submitted until 15 August 2017, after which will be the time to submit your papers to accompany your abstracts. The papers of past Sinkhole Conferences have made those proceedings highly sought and widely cited. We expect the proceedings of the upcoming meeting will be the best yet.
From faultines to karst topography, to whiskey and Corvettes, attendees of this year's American Institute of Professional Geologists meeting are bound to explore some exciting locales. In the recently published list of field trips, geoscientists have the opportunity to explore the Tennessee-Kentucky area including the Harpeth River and Stones River Fault Zones, Mammoth Caves, a Native American burial mound, or and underground zinc mine.
Plans are under way for the 51st annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Meeting headquarters will be the Explorer Hotel located in downtown Yellowknife. Technical talks and a field trip will be held September 6 to 9. We invite AESE members and other interested persons to submit an abstract for any of the session topics described below (general contributions are also welcomed), chair a session, or sit on a panel discussion.
The deadline for abstract submission is July 15, 2017.
Save the date for the Petroleum History Institute's (PHI) upcoming Symposium. This year's event will be held in Findlay, Ohio, from July 13 to July 15. Visit the PHI website for information or check out the attached flyer. Registration details are forthcoming.
Mark your calendars! The 2017 annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors will take place in Yellowknife, N.W.T., September 6 to 9, 2017. Yellowknife is well known for its former gold mines and more recently for its diamond mines. It is also a world-class location to observe well-preserved geological features and formations from the Late Archean Era. Many geological features, including pillow basalt, glacial striae and permafrost features, can be seen right in town. We hope that you will take some time to enjoy the region’s many natural attractions, including its geological diversity, while attending the meeting.
