Near Surface Geophysics members recently cast their votes regarding the transformation of the NSGS to the new entity, SEG Near Surface. This was in support of plans put forward by SEG and NSG to form a new Near Surface entity.
This year's Technical Program offered five sessions devoted to Near-Surface topics, while the yearly technical luncheon offered great learning and networking opportunities. Visiting with colleagues at Katie Mullen's Irish Restaurant and Pub to socialize with the Near-Surface Section Tuesday evening was also great hit!
This conference, organized by the Kansas Geological Survey, Michigan State University, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, and the University of Tübingen, is the fourth conference in a series that has proven to be an excellent forum for exchanging ideas and experiences related to the challenges of subsurface characterization and monitoring.
7-10 July 2015 Hilton Waikoloa Village Waikoloa, Hawaii
This year's conference is centrally located in Hawaii and will focus on near-surface issues within the entire Pan-Pacific region. This conference will provide a world-class forum for your new technical advances, developments, and applications in near-surface geophysics.
This year's symposium will address sensors and acquisition technologies, imaging technologies and case studies, gravity and magnetics, and reservoir characterization, as well as delving into environmental and engineering applications such as disaster mitigation, mining, and more.
Submissions will open in March 2015
