SPE NYNE has arranged for a tour of MIT's Media Lab Center for Terrestrial Sensing.  

The mission of the Media Lab's new Center for Terrestrial Sensing is to explore unconventional ways to sense and visualize inaccessible natural environments–places where it is impossible for humans to go physically, such as underground, undersea oil fields, and the atmosphere. How people connect with, navigate, and interact with large amounts of geoscience information is an area with both world-changing potential and deep challenges. The Center for Terrestrial Sensing aims to connect the People to the Planet.

The final agenda is still being worked out, but the tour will be Friday, August 28 from 11-12.30.  Space is limited to 15 people, so please be sure that you can make it before RSVPing.  

You can RSVP to Jenny at esmythe -at- 


We are excited to announce that we have a brand new student chapter in NYNE SPE - Columbia University!

This is our first student chapter in NYC, and we hope this will lead to more events in The Big Apple.  See the upcoming Distinguished Lecture Event for our first NYC event!
