Rob Reed discusses mudrocks research with JSG Dean Sharon MosherThe breadth and depth of the Bureau of Economic Geology's cutting-edge research was recently showcased at the 2nd Annual Bureau Research Symposium. Thirty research posters were on display for staff and researchers to review and discuss during a morning session filled with lively conversation about the new knowledge being created at the Bureau every day. Poster topics ranged from aerial salinity surveys to marine seismic, from nano-sensors to a massive undersea flow, and a great number of current research thrusts in between. This year, a select committee of staff and researchers judged the posters and presented awards for: Most Enticing/Engaging Title; Best Abstract; Best Use of Color; Most Ground-Breaking Research; and the Inspector General Minard Award. The posters walking away with 2014's award for Best Overall were the fascinating "Enabling Environmental Management Decision Support and Public Outreach Using Cloud-Computing Services" by Alexander Sun, Bridget Scanlon and Kristine Uhlman (for Environmental Research), and "Squeezing a Large Canopy on a Slope: Suturing Patterns, Subsalt Thrusting, Suprasalt Extension and Salt Expulsion" by Tim Dooley, Martin Jackson and Michael Hudec (for Energy Research). Congratulations to all of the award winners, and thanks to the many researchers who took the time to share their incomparable research with the entire Bureau family.
