Professor DeGroot will be giving a Keynote presentation at the Second International Symposium on Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics being held in Perth, Australia in November 2010.

While in Perth, Professor DeGroot will be conducting research work on his NSF PIRE project with collaborators at the Centre for Offshore Foundations (COFS) Systems, University of Western Australia. COFS is one of the two International Partners on the NSF PIRE project. The research work is focused on characterization of soft seabed sediments for evaluation of offshore geohazards such as submarine landslides.

While in Australia, Professor DeGroot will also visit with the Geotechnical Engineering group at the University of Sydney.
