                          WELCOME TO SANTA FE
On behalf of SIPES members in the Oklahoma City Chapter, and the SIPES National Board of Directors,
I welcome you to the Land of Enchantment, and the beautiful city of Santa Fe, New Mexico, site of the
2005 SIPES Convention and 42nd Annual Meeting. This is the first SIPES Convention to be held in Santa Fe,
and the third to be jointly sponsored with the SIPES National Organization.

In keeping with our meeting theme, “The Art of the Deal,” we have developed a varied two-day technical
program with outstanding speakers. They will cover topics designed to give you new insights on how we,
as independent earth scientists, make money.

On Wednesday afternoon, don’t miss this opportunity to hear Drs. Robert F. and Anne P. Diffendal present
a seminar entitled “Lewis and Clark & The Geology of the Great Plains,” the 2005 SIPES Foundation Seminar.
Included will be photographs of various locations on this historic journey that you can still see today, along
with descriptions of them written by Lewis or Clark in the early 1800's. Spouses are very welcome to attend
this seminar at a special price.

In addition to the Wednesday evening Icebreaker, a new Mini-Icebreaker for members and spouses will
be held on Thursday afternoon from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity to discuss the technical
program, or the spouse tour, and to make plans for dinner in one of Santa Fe’s great restaurants.

A variety of activities for spouses has been planned on Thursday and Friday. Santa Fe is also an ideal place to
tour on your own, with so many shopping options, museums, and spas. The Hospitality Suite will have
plenty of information for your spouse’s visit to Santa Fe.

Make plans to stay over in Santa Fe on Saturday and attend the informative post convention trip to the city
of Los Alamos, and to Bandelier National Monument. This scenic area has been significant since prehistoric
times - from Pueblo people building multi-story apartments in the
cliffs, to World War II and the Manhattan Project, to the Los Alamos
National Laboratory and the Human Genome Project, this area continues
                                                                                   Register Early
to have an eventful history.
                                                                                         and
I’m looking forward to an excellent meeting, and to seeing you
in Santa Fe!

      Lewis and Clark & The Geology of the Great Plains
                                   by Drs. Robert F. and Anne P. Diffendal
             “...the largest fountain or Spring I ever Saw and doubt if it is not the largest in
                 America Known, this water boils up from under th rocks near the edge of the
                 river and falls imediately into the river 8 feet and keeps Colour for a ½ a mile
                                which is emencely Clear and of a bluish Cast...”

                            (June 18, 1805 description of Giant Springs on the south side of the
                           Missouri River, at the eastern end of the city of Great Falls, Montana).

  Meriwether Lewis and William Clark undertook their famous journey in 1804 to explore the area known as
Louisiana Territory, purchased from France in 1803. As instructed by President Thomas Jefferson they took
careful notes about farm land, water supplies, climate and usable minerals like salt and coal.

  Their journals, notebooks and maps indicate that they took this charge to heart, and compiled a great deal of
information on these topics. Lewis and Clark were astute observers of the land they traveled. In most cases,
however, they did not know what had caused its appearance. At that time, few, if any, would have because the
discipline of geology was in its infancy.

This fascinating course will take you all the way up the Missouri River to Montana’s Yellowstone River. It will
include photographs and descriptions of the geological features along this route in the words of either Lewis or
Clark. There will also be information on how to view these sites today that are on public land and public right
of way. Spouses are also invited to attend this informative seminar.

Robert F. Diffendal, Jr. graduated with a degree in geology from the Franklin and Marshal College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
He pursued graduate work at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln and received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees there with a
major in geology. He went on to teach geology, geography, and biology at St. Dominic College and Doane College. He
joined the faculty of UNL in 1980 as a member of the Conservation and Survey Division where he worked as a research
geologist and held the rank of professor until his retirement in 2003. He is now Professor Emeritus in this division, a part
of the UNL School of Natural Resources. He has produced more than 300 articles, guidebooks, maps and other works on
the geology of Nebraska and several articles on the geomorphic development of Yellow Mountain in China.

Anne P. Diffendal graduated with a degree in history from Barry University in Miami, Florida. She went on to earn her
M.A.degree from Emory University, and her doctorate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in American History She is
currently a consulting historian and archivist, and has served as executive director of the Society of American Archivists in
Chicago. She has extensive experience in the planning, assessment and development of archival programs and interpretive
historical exhibits for numerous museums, universities, foundations, historical societies, and companies. She has also con-
tributed articles and book reviews to many publications, and was the Manuscripts Curator of the Nebraska State Historical
Society for more than ten years.

                     FIELD TRIP
Saturday, April 30
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Cost: $75 per person

                       Los Alamos and
                Bandelier National Monument
The SIPES 2005 field trip participants will visit the Bradbury Science Museum in Los
Alamos, New Mexico. The Museum is a component of Los Alamos National Laboratory,
which is operated for the U.S. Department of Energy by the University of California. The
Bradbury Science Museum maintains an archival collection of over 500 artifacts dating from the Manhattan
Project, and representing most of the major scientific efforts made by Los Alamos National Laboratory. The
Manhattan Project was the code name for the U.S. effort during World War II to produce an atomic bomb.
The project produced three bombs: the first bomb, known as “Gadget,” was used as a test model; the second
bomb, known as “Little Boy,” was detonated over the city of Hiroshima; and the final bomb, known as “Fat
Man,” was detonated over the city of Nagasaki. The Manhattan Project was considered the ideal program
because of its efficiency, its secrecy, and its cooperation among civilians, military officials, and scientists. It
became the forerunner in nuclear development and control. The Bradbury Museum serves as a bridge between
the classified and restricted Los Alamos National Laboratory and the public. The Museum also presents the
Lab’s history and interprets current research including the Human Genome Project.

Following the tour of the Bradbury Museum, the group will also visit Bandelier National Monument, the site of
ancient Native American ruins, and interesting volcanic geology (see front cover). These natural volcanic
pockets left in cliffs proved perfect for the prehistoric Pueblo people who utilized them as dwellings and built
multi-story “apartments” up cliff walls. There is also a large village located at the bottom of the canyon, which
was built using bricks carved from the volcanic cliffs. This village was three stories high and completely
enclosed. Just outside of the village walls is the Great Kiva, a ceremonial chamber, which eloquently establishes
the cultural continuity between these prehistoric Puebloans and their descendants. A visit to Bandelier includes
an easy walk on a flat, paved trail with an optional loop involving a gentle 1/4 mile climb to enter the cliff and
cave dwellings. If time permits, we also hope to make a brief visit to Nambe’ Pueblo.

          To be the pre-eminent organization for furthering the professional and business
                     interests of independent practitioners of the earth sciences.
                         In achieving this vision, emphasis will be placed on
                                      (1) professional competence,
                                  (2) professional business ethics, and
               (3) presenting a favorable, credible and effective image of the Society.

                  COMMENTS FROM SIPES MEMBERS
               on the 2004 Convention in San Antonio...

“   The overall convention was excellent. The technical program was outstanding...”

            “...this was a very good meeting. I think that gearing the format
                   to things that independents can use is a great idea.”


      “   I thought the papers were excellent. As independents, the business side
                    of our profession is as important as the scientific side. ”


                 “...it was the best convention I have attended in years.”


                       “   This should be a model for other conventions.”

                “   I found many practical suggestions from the speakers. ”
             98 percent of members responding to last year’s exit survey
       indicated that they were Very Satisfied with the SIPES Annual Meeting.

                             Come to the 2005 Annual Meeting
                                    in Santa Fe, New Mexico
