The Jahns Lecturer award was established in 1988 in co-sponsorship with the Engineering Geology Division of the Geological Society of America to provide funding for a distinguished Engineering Geologist to present an annual series of lectures at academic institutions in order to increase awareness of students about careers in Engineering Geology. The award consists of a plaque presented at the Annual Banquet proceeding the award year.
The Richard H. Jahns Fund of the AEG Foundation supports the travel expenses or honoraria, of the selected speakers who present information about engineering geology and environmental geology to diverse practitioner, student, faculty, and public audiences. Nominations are due Friday, Feb. 15, and should be submitted to Kristy Howard, AEG Association Manager.
If you're interested in hearing a talk from current Jahns Lecturer, Deborah Green, please check out her February travel schedule for lectures in your area!
Based on CDOT’s Full-Scale Field Testing of Rockfall Attenuator Systems, Maccaferri’s High Energy Absorption (HEA) Cable Net Panels withstood impacts with the least amount of damage when compared to other industry rockfall panels. Maccaferri’s HEA Panels outperformed ten other systems subjected to the significant rotational forces during the test.

The American Geosciences Institute and the American Institute of Professional Geologists will be hosting a webinar as part of the Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI) called "Professional Geologist Licensure Requirements and the ASBOG National Geology License Examinations." The webinar will be on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 1 p.m. ET.. Laurie Racca, PG, Jack Warner, PhD, and Randy Kath, PhD will be speaking at the event.
This webinar will provide an overview of geology licensure qualification requirements in the United States. We will discuss the national licensing examinations for geologists prepared by the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG®) and learn how data from the ASBOG® Fundamentals of Geology (FG) examination can be used as a curriculum assessment and curriculum modification tool.
Please contact Heather Houlton with questions about this webinar or any other GOLI offerings.
- Webinar title: Professional Geologist Licensure Requirements and the ASBOG National Geology License Examinations.
- Date and time: Feb. 13, 2019, at 1 p.m. ET
- Cost: FREE
- Duration: 1.5 hours
- CEUs: 0.15 CEUs offered for purchase

American Geosciences Institute
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to share its annual report, "View to the Future," which recounts the accomplishments of AGI and the geoscience community from September 2017 to October 2018. Read the report.
"Geoscience provides the lens through which we most clearly view the possibilities of our world," writes AGI Executive Director Allyson Anderson Book. "As geoscientists, we understand that examining the past allows us to look ahead with enhanced certainty, capacity, and hope for the future."
"View to the Future" was distributed to print subscribers of AGI’s EARTH Magazine in the January/February 2019 issue and is also available online.
North Carolina Department of Transportation via AEG Carolinas Chapter
The North Carolina Department of Transportation Geotechnical Engineering Unit will be holding their 10th Geo3T2 Conference April 9-10 in Cary, North Carolina.
The Geo3T2 Conference will explore the challenges and advances in the areas of geotechnical, geophysical and geoenvironmental engineering. The primary purpose of the conference is to bring together geoprofessionals from across the industry including consultants, contractors, material suppliers, governmental employees and members of academia. The conference will provide opportunities to interact with these geoprofessionals as well as be a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences and research.
Conference details including registration, paper submission and hotel information are available here.
What happens when lava and water meet? Explosive experiments with manmade lava are helping to answer this important question.
By cooking up 10-gallon batches of molten rock and injecting them with water, scientists at the State University of New York at Buffalo are shedding light on the basic physics of lava-water interactions, which are common in nature but poorly understood. The first results are published from experiments that aim to illuminate the physics of lava-water interactions, which can sometimes make eruptions more dangerous.

A team of researchers is studying how rocks alter and erode in one of the most extreme environments on the planet — Antarctica. The project is called Landscape evolution in the McMurdo Dry Valleys: Erosion rates and real-time monitoring of rock breakdown in a hyperarid, subzero environment, and it is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs.
