Welcome to the CGS RockTalk blog
2017-05-13 | Dr. John Hopkins
We’ve decided to revive one of our most popular print publications — RockTalk — as a blog so that we can continue to bring you interesting, informative, and timely postings related to our mission. This year, 2017, will see 110 years since the founding of the CGS.
The first RockTalk appeared in 1998 and was followed by forty seasonal issues until the most recent one in 2011. We constantly get requests for back issues and to continue publishing, so in accordance with the times, we decided to make the shift to digital media. We hope you will join us by subscribing (to receive an email when we make a new posting, please enter your email in the subscription box in the right-hand column).
Content-wise, we’ll be exploring all of the many aspects of our State Survey mission to:
- Help reduce the impact of geologic hazards on the citizens of Colorado
- Promote responsible economic developmnt of mineral and energy resources
- Provide geologic insight into water resources
- Provide geologic advice and information to a variety of constituencies
And, along the way, we’ll also post pertinent information on general geology, geoscience research and education, science and engineering policy, and other items that cross our screens. If you have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch!
