This Tuesday afternoon Philippe Renard, Professor at University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) and IAMG Distinguished Lecturer, performed a seminar entitled "Geological realism and groundwater modeling: why, how, and does it pay off?".

His seminar took place at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie (ENSG) of Nancy. The occasion for Pr. Renard to advise students from his former school and scientists with a key message : "do not blindly trust experts, but common sense and rigorous logic".

We thank you and we're pleased to welcome you again.

On the beginning of July (08th to 11th), 7 members of the Student Chapter went on a field trip in Val de Travers, Switzerland, together with four permanent researchers of the RING team to discover the geology of the area. This was the occasion to meet our colleagues in a different context (team building), to discover real geological objects as the team’s main focus is on their numerical representation (for example, through karsts exploration), and to create an emulation environment for scientific discussions.

The Student Chapter and the RING team would like to thank the UniNE (University of Neuchâtel) most sincerely for their participation in this memorable field trip and in its well oiled organization.

This Friday afternoon, the student chapter board welcomed the new MSc students from the numerical geology department of the Nancy School of Geology. The occasion for Corentin Gouache, the president, to introduce the IAMG and our local student chapter.

The MSc students will stay with us until the beginning of May, before flying away for their final year internships. Hoping to recruit new members !
