Thursday, December 11 - 2014 Joint DGGS Holiday Party at The Dallas World Aquarium


 
Comments from our President

December 1, 2014

As we head into the festive season, Holiday greetings are in order.

There have been rather frantic preparations for the Holiday Party which will be held on Thursday December 11, starting at 7:00 PM. The venue will be the Dallas Aquarium. The various features of the Dallas Aquarium have become the focus for sponsorships for the party. The details are very appealingly shown on the Geophysical Society website, but in review, the sponsorships include, the Aquarium, the Rainforest, the Canopy, and the Understory. The website for the event is really a work of art.

As the preparations proceed, it will be quite an undertaking to top last year’s event, but both the Geophysical Society and Geological Society committees are trying their best.

Needless to say, the success of the event is a function of both attendance and sponsorship, so this letter is yet another appeal to get your name on the list. I would like to thank the Sponsors that have already sent in their contributions.

During the 2014 season, we have been very fortunate to have some excellent speakers. The last talk by Beau Trinnin and Matt McChesney in November contained content for both Geologists and Geophysicists and as a result was very well attended. The fact that they are both members of our organization really added to the appeal. As I have previously mentioned, in our current Dallas climate, there is no better drawing card than a talk focused on the Eagleford Shale. Times have certainly changed as we sit over lunch and discuss Young’s Modulus, and rock physics products of simultaneous prestack inversion. The unconventional resources have certainly added a new level of complexity to our jobs.

Other than the Holiday Party, there will be no technical meeting in December, but our program continues with the same vigor on January 22. Again, check out the website. This is a week after our usual meeting due to some development work at Brookhaven.

See you at the Dallas Aquarium.

All the best,
Don Macpherson
