Apologies – we have cancelled the previously planned Short Course on Groundwater Geochemistry, which was scheduled for Friday April 28th, 2017, due to low attendance.
Students will learn how to improve their trench and outcrop logs and descriptions of soils uncovered during seismic investigations. The course is taught by Dr. Glenn Borchardt, Ph.D., a recognized expert in the fields of paleoseismology and pedology. The course consists of classroom lecture on Friday, June 10. Saturday June 11 includes a trip to examine exposures at Point Pinole Regional shoreline.
Friday’s lectures will be held at Preservation Park (Ginn Large Parlor) at 660 13th Street in Oakland from 8am-5pm (lunch “on your own”)
