Two day meetings: Archaeological Geophysics and Environmental Forensics

Two day meetings: Archaeological Geophysics and Environmental Forensics

Venue: Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London Dates: 15th and 16th December 2010

15 DECEMBER 2010: RECENT WORK IN ARCHAEOLOGICAL GEOPHYSICS

Shallow geophysical techniques are now a well established tool for the evaluation of archaeological sites, from their initial discovery to subsequent interpretation and management. This will be the ninth in a succession of biennial meetings in which contributors present and debate the results of recent research and case studies. Suppliers of equipment and software also attend and the meeting therefore represents an invaluable opportunity for both archaeological and geophysical practitioners and those in academia to take advantage of recent research and developments.

For more information or to submit an abstract, please contact: Paul Linford (Paul.Linford@english-heritage.org.uk)

16 DECEMBER 2010: ENVIRONMENTAL FORENSICS

This multidisciplinary meeting will capture shared interests between the geological, environmental science, engineering, geotechnical, mining and archaeological communities in assessing the impact of changes to the environment that may result in legal proceedings. Sessions will include geophysics, remote sensing, geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, isotope geochemistry.

For more information or to submit an abstract, please contact: Dr Duncan Pirrie (dpirrie@helfordgeoscience.co.uk) or Dr Alastair Ruffell (a.ruffell@qub.ac.uk)

It is anticipated that each meeting will attract 100 or more participants. As well as oral presentations, there will be space for commercial and poster displays. Those interested in contributing to either meeting are warmly encouraged to contact the respective convenors, and to submit abstracts of up to 1000 words in length, accompanied by suitable greyscale illustrative material, no later than the 31st August 2010.

Attendance will be free to members of the Geological Society. Non-members will be asked to pay £25 to attend a single day or £40 for both days. Registered students can attend for £15 or £20, respectively. A further charge will be made for commercial exhibitors. Pre-registration and payment is preferred and will be possible between 1 June – 30 November 2010.
