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.


Funding Available for Environmental Research and Development

The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development proposals.  SERDP is DoD’s environmental science and technology program, planned and executed in partnership with the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, with participation by numerous other Federal and non-Federal organizations.  The Program invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced development.  The SERDP Core Solicitation provides funding in varying amounts for multi-year projects.  All Core Solicitation pre-proposals are due to SERDP Thursday, January 8, 2015.  Detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website at www.serdp-estcp.org/Funding-Opportunities/SERDP-Solicitations.

SERDP also will be funding environmental research and development through the SERDP Exploratory Development (SEED) Solicitation.  The SEED Solicitation is designed to provide a limited amount of funding (not to exceed $150,000) for projects up to approximately one year in duration to investigate innovative approaches that entail high technical risk or require supporting data to provide proof of concept.  This year, SERDP is requesting SEED proposals for the  Munitions Response  and Weapons Systems and Platforms program areas.  All SEED proposals are due Tuesday, March 10, 2015.  Participate in the webinar “SERDP Funding Opportunities” conducted by SERDP Acting Executive Director and Deputy Director on Thursday, November 13, 2014, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.  Pre-registration for this webinar is required.  To register, visit https://cc.readytalk.com/r/kt3xmzjy9fvo&eom.

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.
