While multi-rotor drones have flexibility and can work in tight spaces, they may not have the enough range and cannot carry enough weight for large projects. Fixed-wing drones can often provide the solution needed for a large surveying or surface geology study. Welcome to an interview with Lyndon Nance, who discusses his experiences with large mapping projects in which he uses fixed-wing drones.

Small drones, both fixed wing and multirotor, are tools well suited to capturing the imagery required for aerial mapping. The requirements for getting started in this business are less than one might think, but there's a significant difference between an attractive looking map and an accurate product. Welcome to an interview with Jeff Campbell, managing partner of Vertical Aspect, the managing partner of Vertical Aspect, a small company specializing in consulting, training and sales of products associated with UAV (drone) mapping.

This course will provide the geologist, geophysicist, and engineer with sufficient background to better understand the basic principles of petroleum geochemistry, how best to use geochemistry in their exploration or production program, types of samples and analysis required to evaluate a basin/region, integration with other datasets, and better understand the geochemical data and interpretation as well as limitations.

Geoscientists have more opportunities than ever to make working with drones and drone data part of their skill set and services rendered. But, there are often a number of misconceptions, especially when getting started. Welcome to an interview with Michael Nash, who provides a reality check about drones and drone capabilities. Please note that the drones references are the small drones used by the general public, and are not the large UAVs used by the military and other entities.

Carbonate Sedimentologist Research Associate

The Reservoir characterization Research Laboratory (RCRL) at the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) of the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking a full-time researcher to develop areas of existing and emerging research on carbonate systems as it relates to applied subsurface geology. Candidates that have experience in mixed carbonate-siliciclastics stratigraphy and sedimentology are preferred.

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Atmospheric Sciences

The University of Houston Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Atmospheric Science at the assistant professor level. This position request seeks a dynamic researcher and educator who can establish an externally funded research program in the field of Atmospheric Dynamics. This position is open to candidates whose research interest may cover any spatial scale in the climate system. Candidates with modeling and/or experimental background are encouraged to apply.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.
