A Fond Farewell

June 26th, 2014

The Hager GeoScience staff and their spouses met together at Redbones in Somerville, MA to raise a glass (and a rib) to our long time employee, Jonathan Brinkmann. Jon has decided to shake things up for myself and has chosen to begin a new career path. And although we are sad to see him go, we are very excited for Jon and his family to begin this journey.

Jon has been with HGI for over 10 years during which time he has been the cornerstone of our field crew. He has traveled for projects from Guam to California and everywhere in between … in all kinds of conditions - frozen forests, flat landfill expanses, floating down quiet rivers and knee deep in tidal mud flats. Jonathan has done it all - with confidence, efficiency and accuracy. He has always been willing to offer a helping hand wherever needed and has been a faithful employee and friend.

Good luck Jonathan in your new endeavor!!

SAGEEP 2012 Presentations

May 8th, 2012

This spring Mario Carnevale, HGI Vice President, again presented at SAGEEP 2012, the annual meeting of the Environmental & Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS).  One of his papers was in a session on the current “hot” topic of GRM vs refraction tomography for seismic data interpretation.  A workshop the last day of the conference continued the debate/discussion, and it continues still.  Let us know if you want to find out more about the issues.

The 2011 fall season for HGI personnel presenting at conferences has started.  Mario Carnevale is currently in Anchorage, Alaska attending the 2011 national meeting of the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists, where he will present the paper “NDT:  Complex Concrete Structures.”  On September 26th and 27th, he and Jutta Hager will be at the 2011 NGWA Focus Conference on Fractured Rock and Eastern Groundwater Regional Issues in Burlington, Vermont, where Mario will present a paper entitled “Bedrock Structural Analysis Integrating Surface and Borehole Geophysical Methods.”

Recent Outreach Activities by HGI Personnel

November 10th, 2010

Two of HGI’s geophysicists recently participated in local outreach and professional development activities.  Alex Buller (lower left) described the capabilities of GPR in his presentation for a NESPIN (New England State Police Information Network) training session entitled “Metal Sensing Technology & Crime Scene Investigation.”  The class was attended by approximately 25 police officers from local, state, and federal agencies around New England.

Justin Hertzog (lower right) presented a poster from his Master’s thesis research entitled “Seismic Refraction Analysis of the Upper Mantle Pn Wave through Northeastern North America” at the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Eastern Section of the Seismological Association of America.  He followed this with an oral presentation on the same topic to the monthly meeting of the New England Section of the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists.

AutoCAD Update

September 7th, 2010

Hager GeoScience, Inc. has invested in its future by upgrading its AutoCAD capabilities.  We are now running AutoCAD 2013 map 3D, providing direct access to data needed for infrastructure planning, design, and management activities.  AutoCAD 2013 uses open-source Feature Data Objects (FDO) technology that enables AutoCAD Map 3D software to directly access spatial data stored in files and databases, as well as connect to web-based services.  As a result, GIS data can be accessed and shared more effectively.
