The meeting will include field trips examining the stratigraphy and structure of the northern Rockies, short courses ranging from “frac” design and core analysis to geostatistics, coupled to a strong technical program. We are pleased to have Dr. Jacob Lowenstern, the Scientist-in-Charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, as our keynote speaker for the All Convention lunch.
