SEG student chapters are also behind the short course Glaciology, glacio-sedimentary environments and sample methods
Description: In order to use effective exploration methods, the understanding of observed, sampled and analysed phenomenon and processes is essential. This short course will approach the following glacio-sedimentary processes :
• Inlandsis evolution and glacial deposits formation
• Quaternary mapping
• Sedimentary facies recognition
• Glacial retreat measurements
• Sampling choice
• Till sampling method
• Recovery of indicator minerals and suitable processings
This short course is an introduction of SC-04 short course, dealing with Indicator mineral exploration methods.
There will be various awards attributed at the conference.
Form the IAH-SBC, the Tóth Award for the Best Student Paper in Canadian Hydrogeology.
“The Tóth Award is presented each year when the IAH-CNC hosts or participates in a national conference and is intended to promote active participation in the IAH-CNC among hydrogeology students attending Canadian Universities and to recognize excellence in hydrogeology. The award provides an incentive for students and recent graduates to attend the national IAH-CNC conferences and present the results of their studies”.
Other awards will be posted very soon.
We will start recruting student volunteers to help with the organization of the conference in the coming days. You can already propose your name by contacting [email protected]
