AEG 58th Annual Meeting — why Pittsburgh?
You may be thinking this is a geologically "boring" area of the country ... but you'd be wrong! Pittsburgh is an engineering geologist's dream! Steep slopes, underground mines, dams, bridges, tunnels, short of volcanoes ... if you name the geohazard, we've got it!

Environmental geologists have much to see and learn in Pittsburgh! Remediation projects lining the navigable waters of three major rivers, hydraulic fracturing operations booming in the Marcellus and Utica Shales and acid mine drainage from extensive coal mines are just a few major environmental issues here in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

The folks at think Pittsburgh is, well, great! Based on many factors, including eco-friendliness and an exciting nightlife, Pittsburgh was selected as one of the top cities for the young professional crowd.

Register now. Come visit Pittsburgh during the AEG Annual Meeting to experience our great city for yourself.

The Galapagos National Park Twitter account warned Isabela Island, where Wolf Volcano erupted at dawn, holds "the world's only population" of the critically endangered Conolophus marthae, also known as the Galapagos rosy iguana.
