University Showcase
We would like to invite all geoscience and environmental engineering departments in the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia) to participate in AEG's first annual University Showcase.

This will give local institutions an opportunity to showcase their programs to national meeting participants. Both graduate and undergraduate institutions are encouraged to participate.

A flat-screen display will run a stream of automated PowerPoint slides throughout the conference. Each university can contribute from one to ten slides highlighting their programs and research in the fields of environmental geology, engineering geology and/or geotechnical research. Slides can be sent in via email — no staff member is required to be present.

In order to defray the costs of the flat-screen display, it will cost $25 for each PowerPoint slide, with a bundle of five slides available for $100.

If you think your department would be interested in participating, please contact Karen Rose Cercone via email or by phone at 724-357-7650 to reserve your spot. The deadline to sign up and send in slides will be Aug. 1.

JCU team finds 'unprecedented' earthquake evidence in Africa
James Cook University
Lead researcher Hannah Hilbert-Wolf and supervisor Dr. Eric Roberts used innovative methods to examine the ground around Mbeya in Tanzania where a large earthquake occurred some 25,000 years ago. They found evidence of fluidization (where soil behaves like quicksand) and upward displacement of material unprecedented in a continental setting, raising questions of how resilient the rapidly growing cities of the region would be in a major shake.

Emerson enhances reservoir modeling software
Offshore Emerson Process Management has launched the latest version of its reservoir modeling software, Roxar RMS. The new version — RMS 2013.1 — comes with enhanced structural modeling tools that acknowledge realistic uncertainties in the data and improve volumetric sensitivities. This makes it faster and easier for geo-modelers to build geological scenarios, investigate the full effects of structural uncertainty and maximize the value of their reservoir assets.

A trippy view inside Earth's mantle
Popular Science
Inner Earth is a mysterious place. Its seismic rumblings spawn deadly earthquakes and volcanoes, often without warning. But a new model, powered by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Titan supercomputer, analyzes reams of seismic-wave data to reveal the contents (and potential behavior) of Earth's mantle in strikingly clear detail.
