Items of interest: 
  • The 2016 New Mexico Geological Society Spring Meeting has issued its call for abstracts. The meeting will be April 8 in Socorro and the deadline for abstracts is March 18. This year’s special theme session is "Geohazards in New Mexico and Surrounding Areas." The keynote speaker is Dr. John Ridley, Colorado State University. His talk is "Will the Environmental Legacy of Historic Mining in the Mountain West Ever Be Behind Us? Lessons from the Animas River Spill." Organizers of the 2016 New Mexico Geological Society Annual Spring Meeting invite participation in this popular and well attended event. Oral and poster sessions will focus on the geology, geophysics, paleontology, hydrology, and mineral resources of New Mexico and adjacent areas. Abstracts related to the special theme session, or to the geology of New Mexico and adjacent states (including Mexico), are invited for posters or oral presentations. Abstracts on non-regional topics of interest will also be considered. Abstracts should be submitted online or may be accepted in other formats in special cases (contact the Program Chair Elaine Jacobs at ejacobs@lanl.gov for details). Please view the help page for formatting guidelines. Registration details will be posted online soon. 
  • The parking lot at Fidel Center and Workman Center is about to lose 45 spaces for the construction of a new building for the Chemistry Department. The new $15 million building will be built on the footprint left by the demolition of the old Bureau of Geology structure. The contractor, Bradbury Stamm, is expected to officially break ground by the end of February. Those 45 spaces, which are directly south of Workman Center, will be used for construction for a full year. The entire Fidel/Workman parking lot will be closed for construction for about three months at the end of the project. The entire lot will be repaved and reconfigured, as well as connected to the new parking lot for the Chemistry Department building, Employees and students are encouraged to use the parking lot at Macey Center or the parking lot along College Avenue east of campus. The construction project is scheduled to be completed in January 2017 and ready for use by the fall 2017 semester. The construction project is paid for by a General Obligation Bond passed by New Mexico voters in the last general election. The building will be about 40,000 square feet.
  • Did you know? New Mexico Tech sends surplus inventory to Bentley's Auction every month. The company auctions New Mexico Tech inventory on the second Friday of every month. Auctions start at 8:30 a.m. at 4900 Pan American Freeway NE, Albuquerque. Buyers can bid on items in person, on-line or by phone. The website is www.bentleysauction.com or auctionsouthwest.com. Bentley's phone number is (505) 344-1812.

  • What can you do with your empty printer and copier ink cartridges, and the cell phones you're no longer using? Put them in a collection box for the Rotary Club of Socorro. This project is partly community service, to keep the cartridges and phones out of the landfill, and partly an effort to raise funds for Rotary's local, national, and international projects. You will find collection boxes on campus in the Fidel Center, Human Resources, NRAO, MRO, and the Bureau of Geology. You will also see them at various locations around Socorro. Rotary thanks you for your help!
