SAGEEP 2019 Call for Abstracts - Deadline Date is November 19, 2018!

Dennis Mills, SAGEEP 2019 General Chair and his Technical Committee have announced the extension of the abstract submission deadline date  - new sessions added!  Check out the topics and the new submission schedule at SAGEEP 2019.

Latest issue of the FastTIMES Published - Special Issue:  Infrastructure: Dams and Levees

Editor Geoff Pettifer announced the publication and online availability of FastTIMES, Vol. 23.3.    Reminder: For optimal viewing, FastTIMES' new editor suggests viewing the newly formatted publication after downloading to get full color and interactive PDF capability, rather than the limited version in the initial previewing screen.  Many new features and viewing improvements have been made and he's pleased to offer readers a feature-rich, fully functional,  quarterly  magazine for the near-surface geophysical sciences.

SAGEEP 2019 General and Technical Chairs Named

Dennis Mills, of Exploration Instruments in Austin, Texas, has been named General Chair of SAGEEP 2019 being held in Portland, Oregon USA March 17-21, 2019. Additionally, Dimitrios Ntarlagiannis of Rutgers University, will serve as Technical Chair for the SAGEEP 2019 sessions. This year, explained Mills, SAGEEP adds two "sister" conferences, which will run concurrently. Co-sponsor European Association of Geologists and Engineers (EAGE) and EEGS previously announced that the two co-located conferences, "Geohazards" and "Shallow Marine/Coastal Geophysics" will be available to all attendees during the SAGEEP week for a single registration fee. "With the classic environmental and engineering topics coupled with the specific, focused subjects like Geohazards and Shallow Marine issues, there is plenty of opportunity to include a wide range of subject matter," said Mills.  Christopher Leech ([email protected]) has been named Technical Chair for Shallow Marine/Coastal Geophysics, and Joseph Thomas Coe, Jr. ([email protected]) will serve as Technical Chair for the Geohazards Conference.

New Associate Editor Joins the Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) Editorial Team

JEEG editor Dale Rucker announced that Deqiang Mao, Ph.D., Professor in the School of Civil Engineering at Shandong University, China, has joined the Editorial Board as Associate Editor. He earned his PhD degree in Hydrogeology from the University of Arizona and postdoc research experiences in Geophysics in Colorado School of Mines. His major interest is developing state-of-art inversion algorithms to interpret hydrogeophysical data, and applying hydraulic tomography test, electrical resistivity survey, induced polarization measurement and self-potential survey to solve problems in subsurface hydrology.

Call for Papers for the special issue on Geophysics for Urban Underground Space Studies in the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG)

Dear Colleagues:

As the Guest Editors, Profs. Lanbo Liu (UConn) and Rongyi Qian (CUG-Beijing) invite you to submit papers under the theme of “Geophysics for Urban Underground Space Studies” (GUUSS) to be published as a special issue in Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG, 2017 Impact Factor:1.52) for its June 2019 issue.

All papers on planning and design, data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation pertinent to the development of Urban Underground Space are welcome. All papers presented at the special session on ‘Urban Underground Space’ sessions of SAGEEP2018 are encouraged to submit, with the expansion and completion with more rigorous description of the development of the algorithm with case study support. Research papers on this topic which did not presented at SAGEEP2018 are also welcome to submit.

The authors can submit their manuscript to http://jeeg.allentrack.net/. The author should state in the cover letter that the manuscript is for the special issue: “Geophysics for Urban Underground Space Studies”. All submitted papers will be reviewed by two peers and one of the guest editors to assure high standard set by JEEG. The review process for this special issue is quicker than the regular issues and we expect fast turn-around and the wrap-up by the end of 2018.

The authors should be aware that JEEG charges for color figures ($100 USD per figure), so there should be a statement in the cover letter to make it clear that the authors are willing to pay the color figure fee. Otherwise, grayscale figures are free. 

There are two options for publication, both of which are a peer reviewed publication with all of the privileges held by such: A regular research article of at least 3000 words and generally 1-2x figures per 1000 words; and a Near Surface Geophysical Letter (NSGL), a shorter communication that advances emerging research and case studies. We ask that for NSGL, the size be limited to 2000 words and up to 4 figures.

The First Submission: August 31, 2018
The Second, Revisied Submission: November 30, 2018
Final acceptance date: December 31, 2018.

Dale Rucker, JEEG Editor

Janet Simms Awarded JEEG's Best Paper

The Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics' (JEEG) Best Paper Award winner is Janet Simms for her publication In Situ Root Volume Estimation Using Ground Penetrating Radar, featured in the September, 2017 issue of JEEG, Vol. 22, Issue 3.  Current JEEG Editor Dale Rucker said "Dr. Simms paper on root mapping with GPR exemplifies the type of paper that JEEG should host for the near surface geophysical community.  It was thorough, applicable across a number of fields, and very well presented."   The Best Paper Award for outstanding contribution to the JEEG is given each year in honor of Alan Witten, the first editor of JEEG. Prof. Witten was an educator, writer, and adventurer.  To submit to the Journal, click here.

EEGS announces Portland, Oregon USA as Host City for SAGEEP 2019

Save these dates:  March 17-21, 2019 and plan to attend the 32nd SAGEEP!  Portland is a city perfectly suited for SAGEEP - laid-back and friendly, a reputation for manicured parks, eclectic nightlife, fine micro-breweries and distilleries, and nature that cuts right into the city.  SAGEEP 2019 is a must and the Pacific Northwest's Portland, Oregon is a must-visit. 

EEGS and EAGE Collaborate to Produce SAGEEP

Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) representatives signed a joint agreement at SAGEEP 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee outlining the collaborative efforts which will be used to produce SAGEEP, beginning with SAGEEP 2019 in Portland, Oregon March 17-21, 2019. With a shared intent to provide the near surface geophysics community with the highest quality and most timely solutions possible to geophysical engineering and environmental problems and cutting edge research, the two groups have already begun to target topics and areas of interest across multiple disciplines. The architects of the agreement believe combined efforts will result in an enhanced SAGEEP experience, a wider audience and the growth necessary to sustain this important, unique educational offering in the near surface geophysical marketplace.
