Meetings & Events in and Around New Mexico
Special Theme: “Our Common Future: Reliability, Robustness, and Resiliency for Effective Risk Management”
A call for abstracts will be made in January, 2020. Abstracts related to the special theme session, or to the geology of New Mexico and adjacent states (including Mexico), will be invited for posters or oral presentations. Abstracts on non-regional topics of interest will also be considered.
Local geologists Fraser and Cathy Goff and the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) are offering an exciting three-day field trip to examine the geology and volcanology of southwestern New Mexico calderas (28 to 35 Myr) from Truth or Consequences to Silver City to the Gila Cliff Dwellings to Glenwood. The outing begins on Saturday, November 9 and ends on Monday, November 11 (Veterans Day). This trip is perfect for anyone with an interest in geology, archeology, or a bit of mining history. During the trip we’ll compare the young, well preserved Valles Caldera and upper Bandelier Tuff (1.25 Myr, 400 km3) with much larger, highly faulted and eroded calderas and tuffs of Southwestern New Mexico.
