Ask anyone about what lies beneath their feet and they’ll say it’s a mystery. Understanding how ancient sediments were deposited are challenging enough, but taking the mystery out of the subsurface for environmental and engineering work can be daunting….even for professionals.
On Sept 12 & 13, geologists, engineers and environmental scientists will be traveling to Exton, PA for an interactive, educational workshop to learn how take the mystery out of the surface.
Bentley Systems and Midwest GeoSciences Group are combing technology and best practices to help professionals apply the geologic principles to ground water and engineering projects during this first-of-its kind workshop.
