President’s Column – October 2018

It was good to see some of you at the GCAGS-GCSSEPM convention in Shreveport last week! The convention was a success thanks to our colleague of the Shreveport Geological Society. The technical program had 63 oral presentations and 42 posters, and a wonderful “Geology and Wine of Burgundy, France” presented by Kevin Hill.

I would like to share some the keypoints of the the Annual GCAGS Board meeting with you.

The convention next year will be held in Houston, a magnet location that should boost attendance and sponsorship, which the convention has struggled with in the past four years.

The GCAGS convention is going to rebrand itself as “GeoGULF” in the future. The board is consulting with a marketing and branding firm to redesign the conference. The location of the GeoGULF conference would likely alternate between two magnet cities such as Houston or New Orleans. The conference aims at building a stronger technical program, and steady sponsorship to maintain its finances afloat.

The GCAGS convention will likely be held in Cancun in 2020!

I hope you enjoy this month’s luncheon by Dave Koger. Dave uses remote sensing for various application. Just recently, on July 21, 2018, an earthquake with an intensity of 3.5 Mag was recorded north of Valentine, Nebraska. The earthquake is located within a series of lineaments that was mapped by Dave’s as a part of his LANDSAT interpretation of Nebraska for the Nebraska Oil and Gas Commission.


My best,
