Soil and rock logging course

The Conference organizers are planning to hold a one day course on Soil and Rock Logging.  The course will aim to educate geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, and other relevant professionals in the fundamental principles involved in logging and/or interpreting soil and rock logs in accordance with National and International Standards for soil and rock description.

The course consists of a series of presentations from an experienced Engineering Geologist, Dr Fred Baynes from Australia, followed by a hands?on practical session where course participants will work in small groups to log a range of real soil samples and rock cores under the guidance and instruction of experienced industry professionals. Upon completion of the logging exercises, the work of the participants will be reviewed in a group forum and the details that may be observed in each sample will be described and discussed.
