Structural Soils’ award-winning geologist

February 05, 2019

Wesley Dixon, a geotechnical engineer at Structural Soils (an RSK company) in Bristol, UK, has won the Western Region heat of the Geological Society’s Early Career Geologist Award. The regional event, which took place on 15 January, was open to young professionals under the age of 30 and aims to recognise the work of geoscientists in the early stages of their career.

To reach the regional heat, Wesley had to prepare a written submission on a piece of geological work in which he had been involved. This was followed by a 15-minute presentation on the night delivered to a panel of judges, including Bill Gaskarth, chartership officer of the Geological Society, and an audience of local Geological Society Fellows.

Wesley’s talk centred on the use of electronic tablets and optical televiewers as logging aids during ground investigations at Wylfa nuclear power station, UK. He explained the many benefits of using digital technology to control the consistency and accuracy of multiple loggers and gave a graphic demonstration of the power of the optical televiewer when reviewing logs and crosschecking depths, geological structures and features between optical logs, core photographs and engineering logs.

Beating off the strong competition, Wesley was the winner on the night. He received a trophy and a cheque for £150, and will now go on to represent the Western Region in the Early Career Geologist Award national finals, which will be held at Burlington House in London, UK, in February.

Congratulations Wesley and good luck!
