"Geology of Long Island and Metropolitan New York"

Saturday April 20, 1996 - Earth and Space Sciences Building - SUNY Stony Brook

Following is the preliminary program for the Long Island Geologists Conference on “Geology of Long Island and Metropolitan New York” to be held on April 20, 1996 at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. We have had a very good response to the call for papers. This should be a busy and interesting conference. Last year 125 people attended the conference. These included university and college professors and students, high school teachers as well as geologists working for government agencies and private companies.

If you, your company, agency, school, university or college would like to present promotional or informational material at the upcoming conference, please let me know by April 8, 1996. We can arrange for you to have a poster or table in the lobby. The poster boards are eight foot by four foot. You may request any fraction of such a poster board.

If you have any late breaking results or illustrative material or photographs relating to Long Island or Metropolitan New York geology that are particularly attractive, we will be happy to display them also. Please let me know also by April 8 whether you will have something to display.
