Once upon a time the world of computers was closed to all but those who had years and years of specialized training -- but those days are long gone. Computers are faster, more powerful and -- thanks to training classes that can help you no matter how OLD you are -- more accessible than ever. They're not just a tool, but a necessity of every geoscientist, and this month is the EXPLORER's annual "Computers in Geology" issue, featuring several stories that bring you up-to-date on the impact on the profession and industry.
