Speakers:

Anne Jurek – Department of Geology, San Jose State University.

“Determining the vulnerability of groundwater in the Niles Cone Groundwater Basin in southern Alameda County to PCE contamination from past and present dry cleaning operations in Union City, Fremont and Newark.”

Anne Jurek is a graduate student in the Department of Geology at San José State University. Her main area of interest is hydogeology and water quality. Her adviser is Professor June Oberdorfer. She will be discussing her master’s thesis work on determining the vulnerability of groundwater in the Niles Cone Groundwater Basin in southern Alameda County to PCE contamination from past and present dry cleaning operations in Union City, Fremont and Newark.

Eitan Shelef – Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences, Stanford University.

“Randomness and Organization in Branched Channel Networks.”

Eitan Shelef is a Geology PhD student at Stanford University, interested in in geomorphology and active tectonics. In his PhD research Eitan utilizes numerical models and field observations to study channel forming mechanisms and their signature on the geometry of  channel networks.

Julien Cohen-Waeber – Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California Berkeley.

“InSAR and GPS tracking of Slow Moving Landslides in the Berkeley Hills”

Julien Cohen-Waeber is a Doctoral Candidate in Civil Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.  His research interests are focused on the geomorphic expression of natural hazards and their characterization and monitoring through the use of the most current geodetic technologies.   Julien’s doctoral research involves the use of GPS and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) to monitor slow moving landslides in the Berkeley Hills and at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, with the intent to characterize their triggering mechanisms and modes of failure.

Research Posters:
Matthew Thomas - Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences, Stanford University.

“An evolving feature of California’s coastal landscape: they call it Devil’s Slide”

Michael George – Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California Berkeley.

“Scour of Discontinuous Blocky Rock”

 Kathryn Mandapat, Michael Wiltermood, Abdul Mezal, Maurice Kimball, Saklaen SM, Josh Hughes, Joseph Alejandro – Department of Civil Engineering, San Francisco State University.

“SFSU Stormwater Conveyance and Treatment Facilities”

Upcoming Meetings:
May, 2013: Stay tuned for details
June 12th, 2013: Ken Lajoie (retired USGS) on the Geology of the San Francisco Bay Region – joint meeting with GRA and CCGO
