What happens when you bring industry, government, First Nations representatives, policy-makers academics, scientists, and members of civil society together? It may sound like a strange mixer, but Resources for Future Generations 2018 (RFG2018) recognizes that in order to have a meaningful conversation about the use of earth’s resources in the future, all the voices must be in the room.
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.
