Dr. Richard Laton, Sr. Project Consultant with ECI, and Professor at Cal State Fullerton has been busy giving several web-based presentations and talks throughout the country, including:

  • "Boring Logs: What's Important, and What's Not," a Groundwater Resources Association sponsored webinar.
  • "Using Google Earth in Water Resources Research," a National Ground Water Association webinar.
  • "Hydrogeology 101," the 2010 NGWA National McEllhiney Lecture sponsored by the NGWAREF (7 invited presentations throughout the U.S.)

Eldon Gath visited Oregon between October 19 and 22, 2010, and gave three different invited presentations, as follows:

  1. At Oregon State University, Geoscience Departmental Seminar: "The Santa Ana Mountains: Indenter Tectonics and the Earthquake Hazards of “The OC;”
  2. At the Oregon Section meeting of the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists: "Three-dimensional geologic investigation of the Pedro Miguel fault within the proposed Borinquen Dam footprint, Panama Canal Expansion project;" and
  3. At Portland State University's Departmental Seminar: "An aerial and ground reconnaissance of the April 4, 2010 M7.2 “Sierra El Mayor” earthquake in Baja California, Mexico."
