Maccaferri Rockfall Barriers are ETAG tested to provide 100 kJ to 8500 kJ of energy level resistance. Providing the lowest deformation and greatest residual height upon impact than its competitors, Maccaferri Dynamic and Semi-Rigid Rockfall Barriers are perfectly suited to limit deflection into adjacent roadways and railways.

Join the AIPG WI Section and the National Executive Committee on this field trip that will illustrate the geology of the PreCambrian Baraboo Range in southern Wisconsin. This area is well known to structural geology classes that travel there from throughout the Midwest to see the synclinal features of the area. Several stops will include structural elements of the range including steeply dipping layers in the quartzite formation, ripple marks, and boudinage and other deformation features. Adjacent geologic terrains will be discussed including the terminal moraine of the Pleistocene Wisconsin Glaciation, Cambrian sandstones of the “Driftless Area” and the Pleistocene Sauk Prairie. Human history of the area will be included in the geology discussion.

36th International Geological Congress
An elaborate GeoExpo has been planned at the venue of the 36th IGC - the India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi. It has been designed to offer a wide range of opportunities catering to the needs and budgets of the exhibitors. It will have pre-fabricated booths of size 9 sq. m. and its multiples. It will also have open spaces for creating customized booths. There will be a wide range of exhibitor kit items, including panels, furniture and lighting. The Exhibitors' Information Brochure will be published soon. The expo will be located adjacent to the auditorium and meeting rooms.
American Geosciences Institute
The American Geosciences Institute seeks a Research Fellow for Fall 2019 to research, document, and communicate the value of professional licensure for geologists. The position will involve communicating with geoscientists across the United States to determine when and how the presence or absence of licensed geologists has impacted the public, covering issues including water quality and supply, resilience to natural hazards, ground stability, infrastructure quality, environmental liability and public health.
The successful candidate will be highly self-motivated, familiar with the work of professional geologists, skilled in both quantitative and qualitative research methods, and comfortable conversing with a large, diverse community of geoscientists from across the country. Some experience with graphic- and web-design is a plus. This is a full-time exempt position for 14 weeks and carries a fixed stipend of $7,875, plus an excellent benefits package. The start date is flexible and will be determined based on the needs of both AGI and the successful applicant.
The position will be located at AGI Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Please submit a letter of interest and resume to email@example.com and include "Licensure Fellow" in the subject.
The modern mineral classification system, developed by the American geologist and mineralogist James Dwight Dana in the 1850s, categorizes more than 5,400 mineral species based on their dominant chemical compositions and crystalline structures. Professor Robert Hazen from the Carnegie Institution's Geophysical Laboratory and George Mason University suggests an additional classification system, which could amplify existing knowledge of how minerals evolve over time without superseding the existing designations. In his new paper, published in the journal American Mineralogist, he argues for categories that reflect a deeper, more-modern understanding of planetary scale transformation over time.
University of Iowa via ScienceDaily
Researchers at the University of Iowa and the U.S. Geological Survey have found that data gathered from orbiting satellites can provide more accurate information on the impact of large earthquakes, which, in turn, can help provide more effective emergency response.
The satellite imagery provides detailed information about where the earthquakes occurred, how big the surface deformation was, and where the earthquakes occurred relative to population centers, typically within two to three days of the earthquake. This information was then incorporated into a set of operational response guides managed by the USGS National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) that is distributed to decision makers, search and rescue operations, and other groups.
