Bonnell and Lander, who are alumni of this department, presented several lectures interspersed with three hands-on sessions using Geocosm's Touchstone® software to predict sandstone reservoir properties.  The course was attended by graduate and undergraduate students, two professors, and several staff geologists from the Illinois State Geological Survey.
