AGI's Coastal Hazards Webinar - Slides & Recordings Available!

Webinar slides and recordings from AGI's Critical Issues webinar, co-sponsored by EEGS, have been made available on the website.  The webinar featured information about efforts to anticipate, mitigate, and respond to coastal storms, erosion, and associated hazards at the federal, state, and local level. An introductory talk and three case studies from around the U.S. were covered and examples of coastal hazard planning from the Pacific, Gulf, and Atlantic coasts, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all stages were featured.

SAGEEP 2018 in Nashville March 25-29 
Submit Your Special Session Topic Ideas by July 31! 

SAGEEP 2018 will be held in Nashville Tennessee, March 25-29, 2018 in 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 Co-Chairs Andrew Parsekian and Oliver Kuras are currently soliciting recommendations for topics for Special Sessions and persons willing to help develop those sessions (July 31 deadline). If you would like to help coordinate a session, please contact the technical co-chairs at [email protected] and [email protected].

Questions or recommendations related to the conference can be sent to General Chair William Doll, [email protected].
