Arrived in Seattle for ER2010

Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct

Seattle's Alaskan Way ViaductToday is the first day of the Earth Retention Conference 3 or ER2010 conference in Bellevue, Washington.  Sponsored by ASCE’s Geo-Institute, this is the third conference in a series that occurs every 20 years! I’ll be spending the next couple of days blogging, tweeting and posting to GeoPrac’s facebook page about the various plenary speakers, technical sessions, exhibitors and even field trips. So follow geoprac on Twitter (and if you tweet, I propose the #er2010 hashtag) and visit our Facebook page to keep up!
