SAGEEP 20/20 Session Highlighted - Lessons Learned: When Things Don’t Go as Planned

Abstracts for SAGEEP 20/20 and the 1st Munitions Response Meeting are due Friday, Oct. 25.  Have you taken a look at the list of sessions?  There are some pretty exciting topics - this one will prove to be interesting and informative. 

We all like to think that every single one of our projects will go as planned. All the data will roll in without any hitches, the geologic setting will be exactly as expected, the equipment will work as intended, and the sun will shine down on it all. Well, we all know that reality is often slightly different than that. Sometimes that sophisticated state-of-art equipment doesn’t cooperate, sometimes that nice sandy soil that the maps and client tell you about is actually clay rich, or that gently rolling hill is actually a cliff face. It happens to us all, we just don’t like to talk about it. Well, let’s change that. Let’s have some fun and share some of our most frustrating, and ultimately most rewarding work where we had to adapt on the fly and find a way to make it work. To make things even more interesting, there will be a trophy handed out at the end of the session for the craziest example of a job that didn’t quite follow the plan. No, it won’t be solid gold and won’t come with a cash prize, but bragging rights are worth more than all that, right?

Latest issue of the Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics Published

The September, 2019 issue (Vol. 24.3) of the JEEG has been published  According to Editor Dale Rucker "From my perspective, one of the largest accomplishments of my tenure over the past three years is the growth of the journal. When I talk of growth, I not only mean the number of submissions and articles published, but also in terms of maturity."  Click on the September, 2019 issue link to read more from the editor and to check out the current issue!


Call for Abstracts is Open!  Submit by October 4, 2019

The 33rd Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP) and the 1st Munitions Response Meeting organizers have announced the Call for Abstracts.  You are encouraged to submit an abstract; share your research, learn from others, see new technological improvements, and network. This is how we improve; this is how we look forward; this is Visionary Geophysics. Plan to present!  The submission site is accessible via www.SAGEEP.org.

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.
