Report on the 2017 Ingeokring Autumn Symposium on Digital Data in Engineering Geology

Former Royal Army Museum, Delft, 24 November 2017

The symposium has been attended very well. A lot of new insights have been given by the speakers and their presentations. Again, we would like to express them our gratitude!

Summer Excursion Ingeokring: Excursion Pillar Stability in Southern Limburg

As communicated before, the Ingeokring excursion for July 1st 2017 has found it’s final form. This day (1 day instead of 2 day-excursions in the previous years) willl consist of 2 underground guided tours and a few surface outcrop visits. In these visits the historic mining of the Limburg area and specifically the rock mechanics in the underground mines will be the central theme. The combination of underground tours and the surface outcrops near Maastricht will make this a very interesting day.
