| A Special Message From Scott Burns, Past President, IAEG
Welcome to our 38th IAEG Connector, the electronic newsletter connecting engineering geologists around the world!
In this issue, we introduce our new editors for the Bulletin who are taking over for Dr. Martin Culshaw who was so successful as the editor for the past five years! Dr. Louis Wong actually started last year, and Professor Resat Ulusay has joined the team this past month! Both have the title of Editor-in-Chief! The bulletin is in good hands! We welcome both of these gentlemen to their editorships!

Geology Applied to Engineering represents a thorough and up-to-date textbook for courses in Applied PhysicaI Geology, Geology for Engineers and Engineering Geology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It
contains appropriate information for geologists and engineers who are involved in designing and constructing
engineering structures, as all structures are located either on the Earth or in the Earth, or composed of earth
materials. This textbook also provides the fundamentals of subject material included in the Examination for
Professional Licensure of Geologists, a growing need for geologists who work in the public sector.

A Korean icebreaker made its way to one of the most remote parts of the ocean in 2011 and 2013, an area near Antarctica and south of New Zealand. There it dredged up material from the seafloor that revealed a previously unknown region of Earth's molten deeps.
While exploring Namibia, the desert country in southern Africa, a team of geologists from West Virginia University stumbled upon a peculiar land formation — flat desert scattered with hundreds of long, steep hills. They quickly realized the bumpy landscape was shaped by drumlins, a type of hill often found in places once covered in glaciers.

Cuajone mine in Peru is a giant mine and smelter located at an elevation of 3,400 metres in the Andes. The mine, which uses open pit excavation to extract copper ore from an enormous deposit, is owned by Southern Copper.
West Hawaii Today
The 2018 lower East Rift Zone eruption of Kilauea brought an end to the 35-plus year eruption at Puu Oo. With the draining of the summit and the collapse of Puu Oo, Puna, Hawaii, residents were concerned that the eruption in the LERZ could be long-lived.

According to Wikipedia, the delightfully named Cape Kidnappers is “a headland at the southeastern extremity of Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island and sits at the end of an 8 km peninsula which protrudes into the Pacific Ocean.” This is a stunning site that is renowned for bird life, especially gannets.
