The Austin Geological Society (AGS) will hold a Poster Session Meeting on Monday, February 4, 2002, 7:00–8:00 p.m., at the Lower Colorado River Authority Board Room, 1st Floor Hancock Building. All AGS members and area geologists are encouraged to bring poster presentations or "show-and-tell" items to the meeting. Past poster meetings have proved to be an excellent—and fun—way to share geologic work and interests with fellow geologists.

Some currently scheduled poster presentations include:
