TEXAS HYDRO-GEO WORKSHOP

Spend the weekend in real-world field settings, gaining valuable hands-on experience!

The Texas Hydro-Geo Workshop is centered on the collection, processing, analysis and evaluation of hydrologic and geologic field data. It serves as an excellent introduction for aspiring geology, hydrology, and environmental science students, as well as a refresher for seasoned professionals.

The Workshop was created to bring students and professionals together in a field setting for a hands-on learning experience. This is a special opportunity to work with leading researchers and practitioners from across the state and nation. Participants have the opportunity to explore many different techniques for collecting data from soil, rock, and water media. This includes drilling rigs, surface and borehole geophysics, stream gauging, water quality instruments and more.

Participants can select from the various modules depending upon availability. Please note that participation may be limited in some modules for safety reasons, to maintain a high participant/coordinator ratio, or for resource protection.

The Workshop will take place at and around Cave Without a Name near Boerne, Texas. Most activities will be centered at the campsite and pavilion.

Who Should Attend?
The workshop is open to all college/university students that are interested in the field of geology, hydrology, and environmental science. Practitioners are also encouraged to attend.
Keynote Presentation

Dr. Thomas Adams, Curator of Paleontology and Geology at the Witte Museum will be our key note speaker in the cave on Saturday night.
Lightning Talks
Students and professionals are encouraged to bring a short presentation of research or activities that would be of interest to the group for Lightning Talks Friday and Saturday evenings.
