Leonel Gómez, Graduate Research Assistant in the Bureau's Fracture Research and Application Consortium and doctoral aspirant in the Department of Geological Sciences, presented an invited talk Thursday, January 17, 2002 to members of Ecopetrol's research division in Bucaramanga, Colombia, with a live TV link to Ecopetrol offices in Bogotá and in other cities. The presentation described multidisciplinary empirical and modeling studies for characterization of fractured reservoirs. The title of the talk was “Estudios Empíricos y de Modelamiento en la Caracterización de Reservorios Fracturados : un enfoque multidisciplinario.” For more information on this fracture research and Mr. Gómez' background, see the FRAC area of this web site. 1/14/02

Dr. Randall Marrett, a co-principal investigator of the Fracture Research and Application Consortium (FRAC) at the Bureau, and Associate Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences has just been appointed to the editorial board of GEOLOGY. More information about Dr. Marrett's research on fracture quantification can be found at the FRAC’s web area. 1/10/02

The Bureau's beloved Glynis Morse finished the 26-mile Leukemia & Lymphoma Society "Team In Training®" marathon on Sunday, January 6, in Orlando, Florida, winding her way through Disney's Epcot Center, the Magic Kingdom, and MGM Studios.
