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.

#SeismicSoundLab impresses at #SSA17

@SeismoSocietyAm: The hit of last night's #SSA17 Town Hall was this video on OK quakes from #seismicsoundlab (watch w/ sound on!)
Last week's Critical Issues Webinar, "State Responses to Induced Earthquakes" (recording now available), gave valuable insight into how humans can cause earthquakes and what can be done to prevent them. Speaking of induced earthquakes, at the 2017 Seismological Society of America (SSA) Annual Meeting, which is taking place in Denver this week, attendees saw an amazing video that hammers home the recent uptick in the frequency of these events. SSA tweeted it out today:

51st AESE Annual Meeting: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories (Sep 6-9, 2017)

Aurora and stars
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.
