President's message
AEG
I'd like to thank all of those who participated in the recent AEG Needs Assessment survey. The Board will be reviewing the results while conducting strategic planning activities at the Board of Director's meeting next month. Your feedback is critical to shaping the future of the association in terms of the new programs developed and services offered.

Also, as the field investigation and construction season ramps up over the next few weeks, I encourage you all to conduct your activities in the safest manner possible.

Matt Morris
AEG President 2012-2013

Study: Comet, not asteroid, killed dinosaurs
LiveScience
The rocky object that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago may have been a comet, rather than an asteroid, scientists say. The 112-mile Chicxulub crater in Mexico was made by the impact that caused the extinction of dinosaurs and about 70 percent of all species on Earth, many scientists believe. A new study suggests the crater was probably blasted out by a faster, smaller object than previously thought, according to research presented at the 44th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas.
