The 31st SAGEEP will be held March 25-29, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee United States, a region of North America with numerous attributes of interest to near surface geophysicists. Karst features, including Mammoth Cave, are abundant within a short distance of Nashville; a few hundred miles west lies the New Madrid fault zone, site of two of the largest earthquakes in the continental US (1811-1812), and east Tennessee has issues related to coal mining as well as chemical and nuclear wastes. The Tennessee river flows east to west across most of the state with numerous dams and levees. These features, along with topics of national and international interest (infrastructure, renewable and unconventional energy, water, geohazards, unexploded ordnance, etc.) will form the core of a timely and relevant technical program. Technical Program co-chairs are Andrew Parsekian and Oliver Kuras at and
