RSK’s aquatic and ecological consultants Pete Walker and Tom Coyne attended the IFM 47th Annual Conference in Norwich, UK, on 4 October, 2016. Their poster ‘Where do eels live?’ scooped first prize in the Institute of Fisheries Management’s poster competition. Pete is chair of the Cotswold Rivers Trust and asked for the £100 prize money to be donated to the Trust to help fund river restoration projects.

In September, geophysicists from across Europe and elsewhere took a break from traversing fields in ‘straight’ lines to attend the 22nd European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics in Barcelona, Spain, organised by the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE). I was lucky enough to be able to attend thanks to RSK’s generosity and a grant from The Geological Society.
RSK hydrogeologists Catherine Isherwood, Hamdi El-Ghonemy and Vivien Dent recently attended a two-day conference, ‘Groundwater: Managing our hidden asset’, celebrating the International Association of Hydrogeologists’ 60th anniversary and The Geological Society’s Year of Water at the University of Birmingham, UK.
