See you in Burlington!
This year the 56th meeting of the American Institute of Professional Geologists National Conference is being held in the beautiful lakeside city of Burlington, Vermont. This years’ conference, “Geology in the Green Mountains: Scenic Beauty and Economic Engine” is being held from Saturday, September 14th through Tuesday, September 17th at the DoubleTree in Burlington, Vermont … merely a stones’ throw from the University of Vermont campus. The middle of September in Vermont will bring with it comfortably warm days and cool nights, the leaves will have just started turning into a myriad of quintessential fall colors, and the sunsets over the Adirondack mountains to the west will be breathtaking. The Northeast Section is co-hosting this event and we couldn’t be more excited!
Vermont’s State Geologist, Marjorie Gale, describes the landscape of Vermont as being representative of over one billion years of geologic history – a confluence of sedimentary deposition, of lava flows, of metamorphism, of several orogenies (valleys and mountains in between), of glacial scour, and, fitting to our theme, anthropogenic sculpting. We’re delighted that Ms. Gale is not only leading one of our field trips this fall but has also graciously volunteered to deliver a key note address!
Our planning committee has been organizing several field trips during this conference. A sampling of field trips planned include:
