| A Special Message From Scott Burns, Past President, IAEG
Welcome to our 39th IAEG Connector, the electronic newsletter connecting engineering geologists around the world!
In this issue, we first again urge you to sign up for social media to get news from IAEG! You can do it through our new updated website and the links below!
Second, we announce the third summer school on natural hazards and engineering geology applications to be held for MS and Ph.D. students in Italy from June 18-21, 2019! It has been very successful, and I am glad that our wonderful staff of instructors is again doing this wonderful course!
Also, be sure to see the latest in news from around the world in engineering geology!
Scott Burns, Past IAEG president
To go to the website, click here. We have added the following too.
As you will notice, we have a new design and user-friendly search functions. We have three social media accounts, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram, to post photos on the web (and short films) in the Photo Gallery of our website. We also have direct connection with IAEG Connector and Frontiers in Earth Science.
In the new website, there are no more restricted areas and it is not
necessary to register on the website. If you want to make changes to the
Commissions or National Groups or to report Congresses or Courses, you must
send the material to be posted on the website to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All members of the IAEG are urged to participate more actively in
updating the website and send photographs of construction sites and events
that may affect our association with a brief descriptive caption and with
the name of the author. Even webinars are welcome, and from now, even the
presentations in PowerPoint of projects and research with their results will be welcome. Please
send all material to email@example.com.

Geology Applied to Engineering represents a thorough and up-to-date textbook for courses in Applied PhysicaI Geology, Geology for Engineers and Engineering Geology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It
contains appropriate information for geologists and engineers who are involved in designing and constructing
engineering structures, as all structures are located either on the Earth or in the Earth, or composed of earth
materials. This textbook also provides the fundamentals of subject material included in the Examination for
Professional Licensure of Geologists, a growing need for geologists who work in the public sector.
Nepalese Society of Engineering Geologists
“Engineering Geology and Geotechniques for Developing Countries”
12-13 May 2019, Kathmandu, Nepal
The main aim of this congress is to unite all geoengineers, civil engineers, city/urban planners, engineering geologists, geoscientists, disaster experts, social welfare researchers and professionals in a single platform to share and give exact solutions to the global society through transferring knowledge and skills from the from highland/mountain to lowland/low lying areas and vice versa.
11 May 2019 (Saturday): Pre-conference excursions
12 May 2019 (Sunday): Inaugural program followed by technical sessions and Welcome Reception
13 May 2019 (Monday): Technical Sessions
14-16 May 2019: Post-conference Excursion
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
12-15 June 2019
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, School of Design
Sustainable development has called for efficient bioresource utilization, sustainable energy production, effective environmental remediation/management and advanced material development. Research and innovation are critical to satisfy these pressing needs. This proposed conference will offer a timely opportunity to stimulate new research activities in technological and managerial advancement. Eminent academic researchers, industrial practitioners, green groups and governmental departments from different sectors in the local and international context will gather to share scientific and technical inputs as well as political feedback through active discussion.

Unesco IHP Land Subsidence International Initiative
From 20-24 April 2020, the Tenth International Symposium on Land Subsidence (TISOLS) will take place in Delft - Gouda, the Netherlands.
Land subsidence, or land-level lowering, is a major problem that threatens the viability and sustainable economic development for millions of people throughout the world, especially in (but not restricted to) highly urbanized coastal areas. It is often a result of overexploitation of groundwater resources. The total costs globally amount up to many billions of dollars annually.
The Landslide Blog
At least 50 homes remain evacuated after a massive mudslide struck a neighborhood in Sausalito, California, on Crescent Avenue and Sausalito Boulevard. One of the homes on Crescent Avenue slid into a home on Sausalito Boulevard.
Classic science-fiction writer Jules Verne once imagined a whole subterranean landscape deep inside the planet, complete with lost prehistoric species and plant life. The book was aptly titled "Journey to the Centre of the Earth."
The Landslide Blog
It has long been known that extremely large landslides are able to travel surprisingly large distances — a phenomenon sometimes known as hyper-mobility — which implies that there must be very low levels of friction operating at the base of slide. Numerous methods have been proposed to account for this behavior, but trying to gain evidence to support them or refute them is challenging.
On June 26, 2016, an earthquake hit the Sea of Marmara, just outside Istanbul, Turkey. It wasn't until 50 days later that it finally stopped. At the time, no one knew it was even happening. The earthquake is called a "slow-slip" event, and these types of quakes might be able to forecast more damaging quakes in the future.
United Press International
Scientists have developed an improved technique for mapping the magmatic plumbing systems beneath volcanoes using only satellite imagery.
To track the movement of magma beneath Bali's deadly Agung volcano, geologists relied on images collected by the European Space Agency's Sentinel-1 satellites. Their analysis showed the plumbing systems of Agung and the nearby Batur volcano are likely connected.
