Geohazards forum to address shared transportation challenges
The forum, sponsored by the Marshall University Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences (CEGAS) and hosted by the Kentucky Geological Survey, is an opportunity for geotechnical professionals to share information and best practices, and collaborate on transportation-related projects. As in previous years, the 2014 forum will include a pre-conference field trip on Tuesday, Aug. 5.
“Federal, state and private entities that deal with the prevention and remediation of similar geologic problems—such as rock falls on highways—in the Appalachian Region, gain tremendous benefit by sharing best practices,” said Dr. Tony Szwilski, CEGAS director and forum chairman.
Topics for the 2014 forum include scour mitigation and stream restoration; tunneling; karst; instrumentation; seismic impacting infrastructure design; remote sensing; innovative landslide mitigation and correction; rockfalls, hydrogeology and the impacts of mining.
Vendors from across the country will be on hand to display some of the latest technologies. Exhibitor space and sponsorship opportunities are still available.
