FastTIMES Editorial Team Opportunities

EEGS is seeking those interested in joining the FastTIMES Editorial team.  Geophysicists / geoscientists who have the passion, time, energy and interest to participate as a Managing Editor should contact EEGS Communications and Publications Chair: Judy Robinson (j[email protected]) or FastTIMES Editor-in-Chief: Geoff Pettifer ([email protected]; cell phone: +1-360-989-6771). 

There is also opportunity to occasionally deliver a single issue of the magazine with a theme of your choice.  You would be serving as Editor for the specific issue (under the Managing Editor's purview), including selecting a theme of sustainability for geoscience and geo-engineering identified as worthy of focus in the various sectors where near-surface geophysical methods can be applied.  Contact Judy Robinson or Geoff Pettifer for more informationFor a full description of these opportunities, click here

US Infrastructure Geophysics

The release of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2017 Infrastructure Report Card (https://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/) on the condition of US Infrastructure highlights that the urgency to invest more in maintaining and renewing US infrastructure is a key sustainability issue particularly for the US and indeed for all world economies. US infrastructure condition is in a mostly mediocre to poor condition by world standards, because infrastructure investment has not kept pace with growth.  In FastTIMES Vol 24, 3 Special Issue on US Infrastructure Geophysics, we focus on examples of how near-surface geophysical and non-destructive testing methods can help in addressing both new and existing infrastructure site investigation, condition assessment and monitoring challenges, with case histories from the US, Norway, UK and Italy.  Associate Editor Professor Nigel Cassidy, Professor of Professor of Geotechnical Infrastructure Engineering at the University of Birmingham, School of Engineering who is a passionate advocate for infrastructure geophysics and engineering and who gave a Keynote address as SAGEEP 2018 on the future of infrastructure, is the Guest Editor for this Special Issue. In the Foreword to Vol 24, 3, Prod. Cassidy (and in an accompanying article) gives the NSG community perspective and is joined in the Foreword by Dr. Sreenivas Alampalli who is the Director of the Structures Management Bureau at the New York State Department of Transportation and active in the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT - https://www.asnt.org/) to give his perspective from the non-destructive testing and evaluation community.  Eleven articles form a substantial contribution to this important topic. There is also a Calendar 2020 major update.

Continuing a series of publications on issues of sustainability for US/Canada and globally, the August issue of EEGS Technical Magazine FastTIMES, Vol 23, 3 is a Special Issue on Infrastructure: Dams and Levees, featuring five case histories illustrating the application and benefits of using geophysics to assist in dam and levee safety, condition assessment and geotechnical investigations. 

The Special Issue is intended to raise awareness of geophysical methods and benefits and limitations, in the dams and levees professional community. Vol 23, 3 and all previous Special Issues (in high and low resolution interactive pdf format) are freely available for download by near-surface geophysics practitioners and end-users of geophysics (engineers, geologists and managers), in both high and low resolution versions, from   http://www.eegs.org/latest-issue.

SAGEEP 2019 – Call for Abstracts
Additional features in FastTIMES, Vol 23, 3 are firstly, the Call for Abstracts for SAGEEP 2019, the EEGS Annual Conference, to be held in Portland Oregon. Deadline for Abstracts is December 2, 2018.  SAGEEP 2019 will be delivered with the assistance of EAGE and feature a three-parallel conference format including the traditional SAGEEP and parallel conferences on Geohazards and also Shallow Marine and Coastal Geophysics.

5th International Workshop on Induced Polarization
Secondly, there are the regular columns including a new regular column combining Hydrogeophysics and Environmental Geophysics News, which features, as part of EEGS sponsorship in kind of the 5th International Workshop on Induced Polarization, to be held at Rutgers University early October, the Full Workshop Program. In October FastTIMES we feature the Workshop full abstracts.

Infrastructure: Dams and Levees Geophysics
In the Infrastructure and Geotechnical Geophysics News Column, there is a general discussion on Dams and Levees and it points to resources for guidance in approaching dam and levee safety. There are three geophysical case history articles on application of geophysics to dams and two on levees in this Special Issue and we hope many more in the coming issues of the Infrastructure and Geotechnical Geophysics News Column. We appreciate the support of AEG, USSD, IAEG and Geological Society (UK) Near-Surface Geophysics Group who advertise their activities in the Special Issue and are assisting in publicizing this Special Issue to geologists and engineers.
