From Aug 26 to 30, PEMEX hosted the "Septimo Seminario International de Respuesta a Emergencias, Caracterizacion y Remediacion de Sitios Impactados por Hidrocarburos" in Mexico City, Mexico. The keynote speaker at the conference was Nobel laureate, Dr Mario Molina. He gave a presentation on global warming.
Alan Lemon from Aquaveo was invited to attend and give a presentation on using GMS for site characterization and flow and transport modeling of impacted sites. The presentation gave some background on the modeling process and how GMS can be used to characterize and model impacted sites. Another lecturer, Dr. Willis Weight, also shared many case studies of applied modeling using GMS. The attendees were particularly impressed with the visualizations demonstrated by Dr. Weight. Many thanks to the conference organizers for the invitation to present. Special thanks to Jorge Chirpas, Paula Andrea Martinez, and Cuauhtemoc Luna for their many efforts before, during, and after the conference.
