FastTIMES 25.2 Contaminant Geophysics
Editor: Dale Werkema; Advertising: David Valintine

In the foreword from Vol 25, 2, Editor Dale Werkema writes “Our planet and our physical, biological, and societal dynamics are undergoing a significant recalibration to hopefully a more peaceful, healthy, equitable, just, and sustainable future. Just as weather patterns and storms are the result of atmospheric energy equilibration and ocean currents and waves are in a constant state of seeking equilibrium, with a concerted effort from our scientific community and other like-minded  individuals, I hope these sectors of our life and this planet will move to a more peaceful state of justice and sustainability for ours and future generations. This process is, in fact, the underlying goal of contaminant studies culminating in complete  remediation and protection of our natural resources for our utility and life sustaining properties. As much of contaminant remediation is to protect our planet’s unique life supporting water resources, this Special Issue of FastTIMES includes a sampling of our science’s contribution to this process.“  Click the links below for the high and low resolution PDF files for this latest issue of FastTIMES.

SAGEEP 2020/1st Munitions Response Meeting Pre-Conference FASTTIMES (25.1)

The SAGEEP 2020/1st Munitions Response Meeting issue is just what you need to review the symposium program, the sessions planned, Short Courses and all the other, not-to-be missed networking and special events - and SAVE!  So, download the issue (low or high resolution PDF file links below) and be sure to review and register. 

This issue is a great resource for those who still need to submit their requests for conference attendance – or if you just want to peruse the roster of Short Courses to see whether one will help you with your professional development goals. SAGEEP and the Munitions Response Meeting Planners have combined fun and a rare learning opportunity in the Field Trip option.  

Of course, the other important information typically found in FastTIMES is featured: The universal Calendar, the technical articles, specialized columns providing news and cutting-edge developments from our Associate Editors/contributing columnists – it’s all there, too!  To view and download the high and/or low PDF files, see below.

Make plans to join colleagues (and meet new ones) at SAGEEP 2020 and the 1st Munitions Response Meeting, March 29-April 2 in Denver, Colorado USA, rescheduled to March 14-18, 2021!

FastTIMES Vol. 24.5 Geophysics for Geological Mapping 
Contact: Technical Content: Geoff Pettifer; Advertising: David Valintine              

FastTIMES Volume 24, 5 Special Issue on Geophysics for Geological Mapping (Co-Edited by Bruce Smith) is available for download as a single document. Shortly we will be moving to segmenting the document to enable better tracking of reader’s interest and to provide improved exposure and value to advertisers. We will update you when that new publishing mode is ready for you to access and to trial.

Coming to the theme of Geophysics for Geological Mapping, with a Foreword from AASG President Richard Ortt, the perspective on this important use of near-surface geophysics for geological and resource mapping, is given contributions from US Geological Survey, Geological Surveys of Canada, Ireland, Iowa and Alaska, Geoscience Australia and from a North Dakota State Water Commission project. Various mapping approaches are also discussed in the Government Geophysics, Hydrogeophysics and Environmental Geophysics, Agricultural Geophysics, Infrastructure and Geotechnical Geophysics, and the Archaeological and Forensic Geophysics regular columns. Industry News, the geoDRONE Report, UXO Community News and updated news on SAGEEP 2020 are also featured.

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.
