SAGEEP 2016 in Denver, Colorado
Mount Sopris is helping to promote the next SAGEEP annual meeting. SAGEEP provides geophysicists, engineers, geoscientists and end-users from around the world an opportunity to meet and discuss near-surface applications of geophysics and learn about recent developments in near-surface geophysics.

It is internationally recognized as the leading conference on the practical application of shallow geophysics. Since 1988, the symposium has been held over a 5-day period, with over 200 oral and poster presentations, several educational short courses and workshops, vendor presentations, and a commercial exhibition.

SAGEEP 2016 is being held in the downtown Denver, Colorado Marriott March 20th through 24th. Among other pre and post conference activities, information on a ski trip will be offered. Details on other activities unique to the Denver/Colorado area and plans for the Conference Evening, Student Event and Short Courses will be made available over the coming days. Ideas for workshops or short courses may be submitted to Jim LoCoco, Short Course/Workshop Chair.

A set of proceedings, comprised of technical presentations, will be distributed and available electronically.
