KGS annual seminar, May 17 at KGS Core Library

This year’s KGS annual seminar, Friday, May 17, has the theme “Emerging Geoscience Issues Impacting the KGS Mission”. Our program is designed to help participants learn about what practicing geologists in Kentucky view as the developing science questions that will require data collection, dissemination, and research. We have invited representatives from a variety of disciplines to discuss the issues emerging in their fields. Speakers will address areas of coal, oil and gas, geologic mapping, hydrology and water resources, environmental science, industrial minerals, and geologic hazards.

There will also be a poster session and awards presentations by Kentucky geologic societies.

Please join us and contribute your own experiences to help the Survey strengthen its research and service programs.

The seminar will again be held at our Well Sample and Core Library, 2500 Research Park Dr. in Lexington. Maps to the location can be found here:

Registration opens at 7:30 a.m., with a welcome from State Geologist and KGS Director Jim Cobb at 8:15.

To help us arrange for enough food for the complimentary lunch, please RSVP to Mike Lynch by May 10. He can be reached at or 859 323-0561.
