Message From the President

Dear Member,

It’s been another busy month for LPS members and the committee as we lead up to the last one day seminar for the year, the university open day and had the AGM earlier this month. On 17th November we held our AGM followed by a terrific off topic talk from Dr Michael Ala of Imperial College. The talk was titled ‘William Smith – The Applied Geologist’ and went down very well indeed. A thoroughly enlightening talk, covering the life and works of this man who without any shadow of a doubt was visionary ahead of his time and shaped geological mapping in a practical and “applied” manner. The evening was well attended and we achieved agreement on all matters, including the approval of the committee for 2016. Thank you to all who turned out for the evening and showed support.

On 18th November we had an LPS stand at the Geological Society’s career event, this year being hosted at BGS, Keyworth, Nottingham. Thank you to Dr Peter Fitch and new committee member Joanne Tudge for travelling up to support this event and raise the profile of LPS amongst attending students.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that our final one day seminar for 2015 will be held on 2nd Dec 2015. The title of the seminar is ‘Petrophysical Uncertainty: Why it matters and what to do about it’. Please register in the usual way, through links on the website where you will also find a full agenda and list of fabulous speakers for the day. The seminar on 2nd Dec will be immediately followed by the President’s evening – my last as LPS President for this reign! We are very fortunate to have gained sponsorship from (in no particular order) Baker Hughes, Schlumberger, Weatherford and Halliburton. We are hugely grateful for these companies in helping us with sponsorship for towards the cost of this evening, which is free for members and a guest to attend.

Looking forward to seeing on 2nd December

Best Regards,

Iain Whyte – LPS President
