Aug. 23 – Geologists’ convention to draw 1,000 to Cajundome [Lafayette]

“Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in several one-day courses on topics ranging from reservoir fluid analysis, to advanced techniques for interpreting seismic data. There will also be field trips to locales including the Wax Lake Delta and the recently formed and expanding sinkhole at Bayou Corne, as well as a chance to see how Lafayette’s population growth is impacting policies related to local land and water use. Short courses and field trips will take place the weekend before the convention, and all are led by recognized experts from academia and the petroleum and environmental industries.”

  1. I have been watching this for the past two or three days when it first started and on the Arkansas recorder as well and LA-17.

    The LA-10 bottom borehole recorder is set so low it hard to see anything on them.
    This are set to low LA-11 , LA-14 , what can I say there all set to low.
    LA17 HHZ YC 02 : Bayou Corne Well 3, 185m, LA you can see some fluid movement .

    LA21 EHZ YC — : Bayou Corne LA you could say they turn this one off.
    That where Oxy Geismar 2 cavern is at I think.

  2. Iceland looks like it might be about to kick off.

    Lava from Baroarbunga has travelled over 40km underground through a fissure it has formed to Askja volcano, which is now showing signs of unrest also.

    Baroarbunga on Orange alert,. Askja on Yellow alert.

    • I know … magma on the march!
      Got that headline added….
      G00gle is busy scrubbing headlines about Iceland!

  3. The fissure has started erupting during the night. The caldera at Baroarbunga continues to creak with a number of earthquakes indicating “settling” of the caldera roof as the lava empties from it. This may be the end, or just the beginning. Eyjafthingymagig started with a small fissure eruption.
