USGS at Coastal Zone '99, San Diego
Numerous CMG Program members and cooperators contributed to a highly
successful USGS showing at this year's Coastal Zone '99 Conference.
Held in San Diego from July 24-30, the Conference drew coastal-zone
managers and planners and representatives of government agencies and
academic institutions from around the world. A USGS booth about the
CMG Program, coordinated by Monty Hampton and Helen Gibbons, displayed
mini-posters about six of the program's coastal-zone projects, as well
as information sheets, CD-ROMs, and postcards featuring many more.
Running continuously were videotapes (A Nation's Edge, At Ocean's Edge,
and Critical Juncture) made for the program by Steve Wessells (GD,
Vancouver, Wash.). CMG participants in the conference included Monty,
Helen, Mike Carr, Bruce Richmond, and Kristin Brown (MPFC), Brad
Butman and Bill Schwab (WHFC), and Jeff Williams (Reston). Bill and
Brad gave talks at a session chaired by Monty, and Kristin presented
a scientific poster. CMG cooperators at the conference included Dave
Cacchione and Ken Israel (both formerly of CMG, Western Region),
David Jones (British Geological Survey), Ebitari Isoun (University
of Hawaii), George Kaminsky (Washington State Department of Ecology),
and Charles Fletcher (University of Hawaii), who kindly oversaw
printing of coastal erosion pamphlets distributed at our booth.

Many CMG folks who did not attend the conference also made contributions.
Pete Dartnell, Jim Gardner, Guy Gelfenbaum, Herman Karl (MPFC), Jack
Kindinger, Laura Lacy, Chˇrie Hulsman-Reid (SPFC), Rich Signell, Jason
Hyatt, and Page Valentine (WHFC) provided a variety of materials, including
photographs, information sheets, and mini-posters. Chris Gutmacher (MPFC)
sent a box of GLORIA atlas CD-ROMs (which went like hotcakes). Diana Collins
and Anne Gartner (MPFC) fielded last-minute requests for materials to be
tracked down and shipped to the conference.
All in all it was a great success, with many potential customers and
cooperators being exposed to information about our work and a number
of promising contacts being established. Thanks to all who contributed!
