      "BORING LOGS: Making Soil Descriptions that are Complete, Accurate and Effective"

      90-minute educational Webinar by Midwest GeoSciences Group
      Instructor: Tim Kemmis, Ph.D., PG. Senior Geologist and Co-Author of The Field Guide for Soil and Stratigraphic Analysis

      7 December 2010, 1pm cst

      This webinar is designed to teach professionals how to make adequate soil descriptions on boring logs and correlate geologic units that have meaningful purpose to hydrogeologic, environmental and engineering projects.

      FREE `Field Guide for Soil and Stratigraphic Analysis" with each site registration.

      Benefits and Objectives:
      -- How to create boring logs that are: Complete, Accurate and Effective.
      -- Defining geologic units.
      -- How to classify sediments according to the USCS.
      -- How to characterize geologic units using additional descriptive elements.
      -- Providing important context for subsurface characterization.
      -- How to increase efficiency while preparing field logs.
      -- Common mistakes and confusing terms.
      -- Building the geologic framework from boring to boring.

      "ROCK CORE LOGGING FOR HYDROGEOLOGIC PROJECTS: Assessing Recovery, RQD, Fractures and Stratigraphy"

      90-minute educational Webinar by Midwest GeoSciences Group
      Instructors: Dan Kelleher, PG. and Ken Bradbury, PhD, PG

      10 December 2010, 1pm cst

      FREE `Field Guide for Rock Core Logging and Fracture Analysis" with each site registration.

      -- Measuring total, solid and modified core recovery and Rock Quality Determination (RQD).
      -- Identifying natural core breaks from drilling breaks.
      -- Identifying the importance and application of water loss during coring and drilling.
      -- Photographing rock core and placing and labeling rock cores in the box.
      -- Describing rock cores of various rock types.
      -- Giving context to rock cores by building the litho- and hydrostratigraphic framework.
      -- Assessing fracture networks from rock cores and understanding the story that rock cores are telling.

      PLUS! Learn about downhole tools and their recent updates. Flow meter technology, high-resolution temperature distribution using fiber optics, and both acoustic and optical televiewers are advancing and becoming easier to use from year to year. Discover how to use these modern technologies and choose what is best for your projects.
