SAGEEP 2015 Abstract Submission Deadline This Friday!

Conference organizers are pleased to announce that a sufficient number of abstracts have been received for a very strong technical program core; however, because their goal is to accommodate late-breaking topics and authors who have requested more time to submit or complete their extended abstracts, a limited extension has been granted.  The new deadline date is Oct. 31, 2014 and those who wish to present at the conference are urged to submit their short or extended abstracts at the online abstract submission site.  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.  


Call for Nominations: EEGS / Geonics Early Career Award

Nomination Deadline: November 30, 2014

The Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society and Geonics Limited are pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the 2014 EEGS / Geonics Early Career Award, which acknowledges academic excellence and encourages research in near-surface geophysics. The award is presented annually at SAGEEP to a full-time university faculty member who, by the nomination deadline, is
•    fewer than five years beyond the starting date of his or her current academic appointment and
•    within ten years post-completion of his or her PhD.

Nominations should be sent electronically to Dr. Jonathan Nyquist, Chair of the ECA Committee, at nyq@temple.edu.  For additional information, including the award benefits, please click About Us/Awards.


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.

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.
