Pretty impressive tunnel project in a difficult geological setting.

I've been quoted in an article!  Ok...so not a very technical piece, but you have to start somewhere! 

Excited to be at #AEG2015  next week!

It's been a year since the landslide on SR530 near Oso, Washington devastated the community and took the lives of 43 people. Joe Wartman and Dave Montgomery do a nice job summarizing why we need landslide hazard mapping in this NYT Op-Ed article: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/21/opinion/how-to-make-landslides-less-deadly.html?ref=opinion&_r=1
Many "Thank You's" to those who support Appalachian Landslide Consultants mapping landslide hazards in Western NC.

This.

**Disclaimer: I played a large role in putting together this website....which means you should pay even more attention to it!  And please feel free to send comments/recommendations my way!!!
Why is the AEG 2015 Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh?

We're an engineering geologist's dream; if you name the geohazard, we've got it! Environmental geologists have much to see and learn, too with remediation and beautification projects along our rivers, our massive coal industry and the ongoing gas industry boom.

We're home to a world-class mineral exhibition and a leader in green building. The better question is: Where do I sign up!? 

Visit the ‪#‎AEG2015‬ website and find out more!

An excellent article by the Treasurer of Pennsylvania on the challenges and importance of adjusting coal-state economics.

Yikes!  I don't know that I'd call a 10-inch auger huge...but it was definitely a HUGE MISTAKE!

Great Idea!

"The classic Roadside Geology of Oregon book has been updated and is the subject of an exhibit at the +University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History."

I am way too excited about this. Possibly because I helped bring this into being.  But I'm not biased at all...ok, maybe a little!   
We're working with +Guidebook to create a fully interactive mobile guide for next year's Annual Meeting, #AEG2015 ...and here's a sneak preview!

We've listed some of the features below, but we want to know... What's in YOUR ultimate meeting app???

- Create your own schedule with reminders!
- Interactive maps of the exhibit hall, conference center and surrounding area!
- Network and exchange contact info with exhibitors and other meeting attendees
- Integrated social media and photo-sharing!
- All this and more is free to all attendees!

If you are in the Seattle area, this should be at the top of your "TO-DO" list for next February.  

After the tragedy of the #Oso #Landslide last March, and how the loss of homes and life really could have been avoided had the hazard been adequately addressed, communicated and - perhaps most importantly - understood; You owe it to yourself, to your friends and to your family to learn about landslide hazards.

Even if you don't live near Seattle, this issue is important; Landslides are not confined to "mountainous" areas.  Some of the greatest occurrences of landslides are in eastern States, like North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia.  

If you can't attend this meeting and would like to learn more about this, or other geohazards, let me know!  I can direct you to some pretty decent resources for all levels of understanding.

Marking one year since the Oso Landslide disaster in Washington State, the AEG Shlemon Specialty Conference will be held February 26-28, 2015 in Seattle, WA
