Wed., Apr. 25, 6:30 p.m., Denver Café Scientifique 1 at Blake St. Tavern, Rethinking Plate Tectonics and Why We Should Care, by Quinton Hennigh, PhD, President and Chairman, Novo Resources Corporation. Café Scientifique is a more-or-less monthly science lecture & discussion program, open to everyone; no RSVP is needed. Blake St. Tavern is at 2301 Blake St., close to Coors Field. Parking in a lot adjacent, or at meters on the street. “The talk starts at 6:30. Come before 6 p.m. to leave yourself time to get something to eat. We end around 8 p.m.” Its a place to have some food and drink as you choose, hear a talk on some topic of current scientific interest, and meet people. See more at http://cafescicolorado.org/ . Abstract of this presentation:
“Tectonics, the field of geologic study that examines the processes that control the structure and properties of the Earth's crust and its evolution through time, has been dominated by the theory of plate tectonics for about 50 years. In plate tectonics the outermost part of the Earth, the crust and uppermost mantle collectively termed the lithosphere, behaves as a single mechanical layer divided into separate more-or-less rigid plates that move about on underlying ductile upper mantle that convects in response to continuous heat loss from the Earth's interior. Evidence is mounting that this model is too simplistic, however. Tectonic “plates” display internal differential motion, especially along collisional boundaries. Yet unexplained toroidal tectonic movements have been recognized in certain regions of Earth. Discrete layering is discernible within the upper mantle making “conveyer-belt” convection implausible. Is there a more comprehensive tectonic model that can better explain recent observations? A look at fluid movements in Earths atmosphere may hold the key.”

May Friends of Mineralogy, Colorado Chapter meeting, at the Lakeview Event Center, 7864 W. Jewell Ave., Lakewood CO. All are welcome.
The Xuebaoding Mountain with its W-Se-Be deposits has emerged as a world-class specimen locality for scheelite, cassiterite, and beryl since its discovery in the 1950s. Situated high above tree line on the northeastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau, the mineralized muscovite-rich quartz veins intruding Triassic metamorphic schist and carbonate rock are of a greisen-type associated with small alkali granite intrusions. Major gem-grade scheelite, beryl, and cassiterite are found with minor K-spar, quartz, fluorite, calcite, and rare Sn-bearing minerals mushistonite, kësterite, and others. Difficulties in access of this remote locality above 4200 m have long limited systematic research of its geology and mineralogy. I will discuss recent progress and new insight into the mineralogy which resolve a number of mysteries surrounding this deposit.

SESSION 1: Chemical Fingerprinting
March 29 Part 1. Comprehensive Chemical Fingerprinting
March 30 Part 2. Chiral Fingerprinting and Signature Chemicals
SESSION 2: Isotopic Fingerprinting
April 19 Part 1. Methods Based on Stable Isotopes
April 20 Part 2. Methods Based on Radioisotopes
SESSION 3: Emerging Methods
April 24 Part 1. Tree-Ring Fingerprinting and Other Advances
"Fingerprinting" unlocks the mystery of contaminant source identification, age-dating and allocation. Laboratory and field advances are redefining environmental forensics for a spectrum of contaminants (e.g., crude oil & distillates, chlorinated solvents, metals, PCBs, PAHs, perchlorate, nutrients).
These advances are capable of revealing multiple releases in common chemistry conditions. Emerging technologies are being used today for more applications, with more certainty and more financial assurances. Technology has progresses since the times we could simply differentiate old contamination from newer releases.
Legal arguments are part of environmental forensics as much as technology. Defending or arguing against a fingerprinting process contains hidden challenges that are known to attorneys and expert witnesses. Don't be ill-prepared for a fingerprinting project that will be scrutinized by others.
Learn how environmental forensics are reaping financial benefits by improved remediation accuracy. Fingerprinting advances are becoming less expensive with more applications and purpose. An investment in fingerprinting contaminants is a key element for remediation system design because it confirms certainty, purpose, and success metrics.
This online course features exercises of common scenarios that teach the principles of environmental forensics. Starting with exercises about reconstructing past contamination events and continuing with recognizing defensible evidence that withstands legal scrutiny.
This online course will help environmental professionals at every level, including environmental consultants, regulators, industrial site owners and operators (e.g., manufacturers, mining companies, foundry operators, refineries, dry cleaners), insurance agency employees, environmental lawyers, and governmental employees.

Shifting and increasing populations, as well as changing weather patterns, have garnered greater attention to where the world will obtain its water supplies both now and in the future. Increase your general knowledge about groundwater, its movement, vulnerabilities, and sustainability during this online offering that serves as both a primer and a refresher course and that addresses topics such as:
How do groundwater and surface water differ and what is the impact of their interaction?
What is a water budget?
What are permeability and porosity and how does each affect groundwater flow?
When and to what constituents is groundwater most vulnerable

The Board of Examiners has initiated a Rulemaking process to clarify Rule 6.3 “Prior Notice of Dewatering Well, Monitoring and Observation Hole, and Test Hole of the Construction Rules” (2 CCR 402-2). The proposed rule change clarifies that a notice of intent must be provided prior to the construction of any dewatering well or monitoring and observation hole, not just those that penetrate through a confining layer. The rule change is meant to eliminate any potential for confusion, but does not change the substance or requirements of the existing rule. Staff of the Board of Examiners held a public stakeholder meeting to discuss a proposed change to Rule 6.3 on Tuesday February 27, 2018.
Please review the proposed language on the following page and provide any comments by the end of business March 16, 2018. Comments can be submitted through the “BOE Info/News” at AskDWR (http://www.dwr.state.co.us/OnlineTools/AskDWR.aspx) or by email to Kevin.Donegan@state.co.us.
