    Message from the President

    Dear Members, After an enjoyable summer break LPS resumed evening meetings last week with an excellent double bill of talks from Ahmed Badruzzaman Ph. D, ANS Fellow Pacific Consultants and Engineers and University of California, Berkeley and Mohammed Aliyu of University of Leeds. Ahmed gave us a fabulous talk titled “Alternative Nuclear-based Technologies to Mitigate Risks of Radionuclide Well Logging Sources: Their advantages and challenges” while Mohammed gave a talk titled “Physicomechanical Characterisation of Flint”.

    Both talks prompted healthy debate and discussion. The evening meeting was well attended by students and experienced professionals alike.
