The BCGS Executive is pleased to announce the speakers for the fall 2016 symposium.
Geophysics & Geological Case Studies
Geophysics plays and ever increasing role in geological investigations of the earth for resource exploration, extraction and other engineering applications (e.g. geological hazards). In this year’s Fall Symposium series from the BC Geophysical Society, we have brought together a wide range of different geophysical methods applied to an even wider array of geological investigations. In a one-day symposium, at a convenient downtown Vancouver location, for a very modest cost, come and learn about the latest geophysical technologies applied to some familiar and unfamiliar geological themes. The cross application of these techniques should lead to some thought provoking and interesting discussions throughout the day.
