Presidents Corner (June, 2022)
Let’s get right into it, shall we? CSUF’s research day went off without a hitch! Judges Christine Irwin, Gwen Sharp, Zack Haygood, Faith Burkett (our Social Media Manager) and myself judged 19 student posters. The top poster in each category was selected, and we were able to award a total of $1000 to the students with the winning posters. Thanks to the department for including us and allowing us to support the next generation of geologists!
Next, our annual joint meeting with SDAG will be held on June 6th at El Adobe in San Juan Capistrano. Rick Wooten, the 2021-2022 Jahns Distinguished Lecture, will be presenting a talk entitled “2018-2020: Two Years, Eight Storms, 320+ landslides, and an Earthquake
(What does it mean, and what do we do now?)”. Social hour will start at 6, which will be followed by dinner from 7-8. The presentation along with the q&a portion of the meeting will follow.
Back by popular demand, we will be hosting our second Hike ‘n Brew of the year on Sunday June 26th. This time, we’ll be looking at turbidities, concretions, rip up clasts, landslides, and active long-shore drift in San Clemente! After the hike, we will be heading over to Los Molinos Beer Co. for lunch. A formal announcement with the specific meeting locations will be sent out soon.
Lastly, we would like to thank our corporate sponsors NMG Geotechnical Inc, Earth Consultants International, Leighton and Associates, Inc., Apex Companies, and Steve Zigan for their continued support. If your company would like become a corporate sponsor, please visit our website for more information on sponsorship levels and how to donate.
