Dr. Tom Jordan PG, Speaker at AIPG Fall Meeting

A predictive landslide susceptibility model is being developed to streamline and focus the current approach commonly used to address planning and design data needs at proposed well pad sites and along the projected limit of disturbance for pipeline construction projects. This predictive model uses a weighted indicator parameter approach to evaluate landslide susceptibility at targeted areas. Artificial intelligence (AI) methods are being considered to determine region specific weights for each indicator parameter within the model with the goal of converging on a landslide susceptibility index value. The goal of this project is to provide a process where a landslide susceptibility index value can be determined from any study area where shallow test boring data from the National Coal Resources Database System (NCRDS) is available.

FTS-KEY Oil and Gas Marketing

FTS and KEY have combined marketing forces to pursue work in the Oil and Gas industry. With the creation of the a new web site designed to drive “traffic” to our web sites, the new site can be found at With that, Vicki Bomberger also updated the FTS webpage to reflect the services being performed. Also, a combined advertisement is up on the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA) web site.

And finally, if driving along Interstate 70 between Wheeling, WV and Washington, PA, keep your eyes open around mile marker 3 where a roadside billboard supporting the combined companies efforts for the OIL and GAS Industry sites prominently along the highway. Designed in cooperation with Lamar Advertising, this is FTS and KEY’s first reach into this advertising medium.

He will serve on the board for a 3-year term starting in January 2019. Dr. Jordan has participated in various educational seminars for the PCPG including teaching the seismology, exploration geophysics, and the well logging component of the ABSOG exam review course since 2007. As a board member, Tom will to continue to raise awareness amongst geologists and the public to all the great work, professional services, and outstanding resources of information provided by the PCPG. He loo ks forward to taking his current support of the PCPG to the next level by interfacing and exchanging ideas with the existing leadership team to help insure that the PCPG can continue to evolve and meet the changing needs of Pennsylvania’s geologists.
