River bank? Slide bank? Both actual visits and virtual tours of spectacular geologic splendor are available to you via AAPG, which offers a world of field seminar opportunities in 2004 -- including a "Geotour" trip through the Grand Canyon Aug. 5-12, where you can have the same upclose perspective depicted in our top photo. Photo courtesy of John Balsley. And for those who can't travel, there's a new addition planned this spring to the Slide Vault on the AAPG Web site: two new virtual geology field trips, one of the classic Caribbean reef complex in St. Croix and another of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, both courtesy of AAPG member Lee Gerhard, who provided the cover slide images. For information on all AAPG field seminars -- and for your virtual geology tours.

Candidates for treasurer of AAPG, present their bios and explain why they are candidates for AAPG office.

Trenton-Black River in CanadaGeology without borders: An exploration renaissance is under way in eastern Canada, thanks to the prolific Trenton-Black River fairway.

Big, headline grabbing success stories may have been rare in 2003, but there were enough discoveries -- especially new finds in proven areas -- to put last year's exploration scoreboard in the winner's circle.

"Look West Young Man" comes to mind as many turn their gaze from West Africa and its exciting discoveries, to the potential in Central and South America, and the Caribbean.

It's not just for U.S. companies anymore: Count Australian firms among those international players who are discovering the joys of exploration in the Gulf of Mexico.

Bylaws changes that deal with membership matters and "housekeeping" chores are in place for the upcoming House of Delegates meeting in Dallas.

Speaking of changes: Jack Thomas, AAPG's geoscience director since 2002, announces his retirement, effective later this year.
