EVENTS CODE OF CONDUCT
Earthquakes, Sea-Level Rise, and Fossils, Oh My … Earth Science Issues from the Lowcountry to Engage Your
Sat., 30 Mar., 9 a.m.–noon. Cost: Free. Maximum 25 participants.
Cosponsored by the GSA Geology and Society Division.
Cynthia Hall, College of Charleston; Erin Beutel, College of Charleston; Sarah Michalies, College of Charleston;
Cass Runyon, College of Charleston.
Description: Engage in local issues to excite your students in problem solving. From engineering
structures to withstand earthquakes, like that of the 1886 Charleston one, to designing solutions for a community
in the path of sea level rise, to understanding changing environments by looking at local transition fossils,
educators will get a solid foundation in content, while developing integration strategies.
Field Geophysics Using ABEM WalkTEM, ABEM Terrameter, and Mala Ground-Penetrating Radar.
Sat., 30 Mar., 9 a.m.–noon. Cost: Free.
Amber Onufer, Guideline Geo (ABEM and Mala); Per Westhom, Guideline Geo.
Description: A presentation on basic theory and application followed by field demonstration of
resistivity, time-domain EM, and ground penetrating radar. Highlighting the applications and functionality of each,
we plan to use each system to gather data at a local site for evaluation.
Early Registration Ends:
