EEGS Is Deeply Saddened to Share the News...

John Nicholl

EEGS lost one of its founding members and guiding lights: John Nicholl passed away Monday, September 1 while enjoying the movie, “Heaven Is for Real,” with friends. His contributions to EEGS and the field of near-surface geophysics are immeasurable and we will miss him greatly.  Memorial gifts may be made to: LifeStream Support Service; c/o Marks Funeral and Cremation Service; 9293 Eastman Park Drive; Windsor, CO 80550.  

 

SAGEEP 2015 Abstract Submission Site Open

Conference organizers have opened the online abstract submission site for the 28th Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP) and are calling for abstracts.  The site will be open until Oct. 17, 2014 for initial submissions.  Final revised abstracts and optional extended abstracts are due by Jan. 19, 2015.  Other key dates, submission details, and a listing of session topics can be found at SAGEEP 2015 Abstracts & Sessions.  

 

New Feature for EEGS' Journal

The online version of the Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) will now feature color figures.  Manuscript authors can order their figures to appear in color in the print and online versions or request figures to appear in color in the online version and black and white in the print version.  Details and color figure order forms can be found at  Publications & Merchandise/JEEG.

 

FastTIMES Latest Issue

   

The latest edition, FastTIMES Vol. 19.2, Seismic Methods Capacitatively-Coupled Resistivity is available for viewing and download.  Click Here for latest issue (9.1 MB). 

Access past issues at Publications/FastTIMES/Past Issues

FastTIMES Submissions
For the next issue of FastTIMES, technical articles and industry contributions on any near surface technique and their geophysical applications will be accepted. Please send your submissions to a member of the editorial team - Barry Allred (allred.13@osu.edu), Moe Momayez (moe.momayez@arizona.edu),  or Jeff Paine (jeff.paine@beg.utexas.edu).

FastTIMES UXO Geophysics Special Issue

The 2014 September FastTIMES issue will focus on UXO detection using geophysical methods.  The FastTIMES editorial team, Barry Allred (allred.13@osu.edu), Moe Momayez (moe.momayez@arizona.edu), and Jeff Paine (Jeff.paine@beg.utexas.edu) therefore welcome the submission of technical articles, case histories, and industry news write-ups related to the topic of UXO geophysics.  To be included in the 2014 September FastTIMES issue, all materials need to be submitted by September 1, 2014.

 

Journal (Vol. 19 Issue 2) Available Online

The June issue of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) is now available online.  Members can access EEGS publications (JEEG and SAGEEP Proceedings) at Membership/Members Only/Online Research Collection.  Click on the Literatum (platform) link to view the list of publications.  (Members must be logged in to the EEGS web site to access the Members Only tab.)

EEGS Student Committee Invites Student Chapter Formation

Student Committee Chairman, Laura Sherrod, outlines the process to form a Student Chapter and calls for students and faculty advisors to review the benefits of  EEGS Student Chapter activities.

New Corporate Member Category Announced

The recent formation of the Corporate Student Sponsor membership category is a move to help fund student activities at SAGEEP and sponsor student membership in EEGS (no cost to students).  Uses of the funds include student awards and incentives for involvement at SAGEEP, student events at EEGS Student Chapter meetings, and funding for students attending short courses and webinars.  Benefits of the newly formed category, Corporate Student Sponsor, include recognition and visibility at SAGEEP and on the EEGS website and playing a vital role in student members' development.  If you are interested in details about becoming a Corporate Student Sponsor member, please email staff@eegs.org or review the membership categories descriptions on the Membership Application

 

JEEG Wants Your Manuscripts! 

The majority of EEGS members and readers of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) are involved in interesting and innovative studies. Whether it is developing a new process or approach, modifying present applications, or applying a common technique in an innovative manner, the JEEG readership would like to know what YOU are doing.  JEEG Editor, Janet Simms, is appealing to potential contributors to document their experiences and submit them to JEEG.  She reminds everyone that with SAGEEP approaching, many will be attending the conference to give a presentation, or learn about new research, software, and hardware advancements. Colleagues will be discussing what they have been doing.  "Put those discussions on paper and submit your work efforts to JEEG—let the world know what you are doing!"  All SAGEEP attendees who are giving an oral or poster presentation should consider submitting their work to JEEG, which receives a much wider audience.

JEEG is an internationally recognized journal in geophysics, has an impact factor of 0.837 (2010), and is accessible through both SEG and EAGE libraries, and GeoScience World (GSW), a library database subscribed to by the majority of universities and colleges with a geoscience curriculum.  
Information on submitting a manuscript to JEEG can be found at jeeg.allentrack.net.
