On the cover: “Faces of Earth,” a four-part, high-definition TV series that explores how the forces of nature made – and remade – this planet premieres this month on the Science Channel. The much-anticipated series tells its story via dramatic photography, state-of-the-art technology and through the eyes of many AAPG members. The cover’s photograph, a reminder of Earth’s dramatic beauty, is the east flank of Utah’s Laramide age San Rafael Swell; the steep dipping sandstone cliffs consists of the Jurassic Navajo, Kayenta and Wingate Formations.

Starting over? There are several good reasons – and examples – of why today may be the perfect time to start out on your own.
Good times: Utah, the industry’s hottest star just a few years ago, is quietly continuing its very hot streak.
Another reason to study geology: Scientists in Utah are helping to evaluate various technologies to capture – and therefore, reduce – greenhouse gas emissions via carbon sequestration in underground formations.
Reach out and touch: Can extended reach drilling be the key that unlocks the logjam surrounding offshore drilling in the United States?
Artist at work: You may not know his face, but graphic designer Rusty Johnson is, in many ways, the face of AAPG – and an award-winning woodcarver to boot.
In recent years the range of basin modeling applications has expanded from its traditional use in oil and gas exploration to include areas like reservoir property prediction and CO2 sequestration.
The four-part television series "Faces of Earth" explores the forces of nature that have made and continually remake Earth. It is scheduled to debut on the Science Channel in July.
