At the remotely-convened Geoconvention in Calgary on September 21st, Richard Jackson presented “Investigating the Origin of Elevated H2S in Groundwater Discharge from Abandoned Gas Wells, Norfolk County, Ontario”.
It is Richard Jackson’s opinion that there should be more geoscience in geotechnical engineering programs. In this article, he briefly describes how geoscience has been, and will continue
to be, important to Canadian geotechnique, and suggests what an introductory geoscience course in geotechnical engineering should include.
