Greetings AEG Southern California Chapter Member
We hope you will join us for the AEG Southern California's October meeting to be held at Cisco's Mexican Restaurant, in Westlake Village, Tuesday, October 11th. The presentation will be by Dr. Phillip Hogan, Senior Principal Engineering Geologists at Fugro Consultants, Inc.
Our chairman, Shant, will also be providing a summary from the recent National meeting in Hawaii.
Our speaker, Phillip Hogan, PhD, CEG, has 30 years of experience specializing in geohazard surveys for coastal infrastructure and energy projects. Since 2004 he has been a Senior Principal Engineering Geologist with Fugro Consultants, following his 20 year career with Nekton, Dames & Moore and URS. Dr. Hogan performs geologic reconnaissance, high-resolution geophysical mapping surveys, and geohazard evaluations in a variety of tectonic and sedimentary environments worldwide.
Dr. Hogan has a strong background in seismic hazards evaluation, structural geology, sedimentology, engineering geology, Quaternary geology, geochronology, geomorphology, and stratigraphy. Dr. Hogan has a broad-based knowledge of all aspects of geology, while specializing in geohazard studies, seismic hazard analysis, and coastal processes. Dr. Hogan has carried out investigations of landslide hazards, debris flows, liquefaction potential, basin analysis, water resource evaluation, surface fault rupture displacement, seismic source characterization, and foundation engineering conditions.
Dr. Hogan received his undergraduate degree in geology from Princeton University, and both his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Southern California.
Dr. Hogan currently serves as a Technical Authority for Fugro's GeoConsultancy Group.

Presentation Topic: New Data Used to Constrain and Model Palos Verdes Fault Zone
New high-resolution 2-D seismic reflection data were collected for the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County’s proposed Joint Water Pollution Control Plant Effluent Outfall Tunnel across the Holocene-active Palos Verdes fault zone (PVFZ) in the eastern Palos Verdes Peninsula (PVP). These data were used in conjunction with digital renderings of early 20th-century topography and borehole data to refine the location, geometry and kinematics of shallow (< 6,000 feet) faulting and folding along one of the highest-slip-rate structures in the greater metropolitan Los Angeles area. The onshore PVFZ is approximately 6,000 feet wide and consists of three principal strands, referred to herein as the northern, middle and southern splays (PFVN, PVFM and PVFS, respectively). This study provides robust constraints on the location and geometry of what was previously a poorly located section of the fault zone.
