The Young Professionals section of the PGK and AAPG brings together Netherlands-based early-career workers and students in the field of Petroleum Geology. Our aim is to provide you an opportunity to meet peers, build and expand your professional network, and get support at the start of your career.

The core of our activities are monthly YP lectures and workshops, followed by social drinks. These are held every first Wednesday of the month. We also organise an annual YP excursion, visit geo universities, and keep you informed on interesting events. Participating in our activities does not require any membership, but we do encourage you to join the PGK and AAPG (note that both provide student discounts).

Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn, and subscribe to our mailing list to stay up-to-date on our activities. You can do this by email or through one of the board members: Kevin Bisdom, Lisanne Douma, Linda Janssen, Erik Sens, and Koen van Toorenenburg.

Abstract:
Natural stone constitutes an important part of our built heritage. The city of Rotterdam may not be the first example that comes to mind, but the book Onvermoede weelde, published in 2012, proves otherwise. A prime example of this is the application of natural stone in harbour-related buildings of the Jongere Bouwkunst, such as the shipping company offices in Rotterdam. The architecture of this period sees the use of a variety of natural stones, in particular magmatic rocks, contrasting to the predominant use of sedimentary rocks from neighboring countries in preceding architectural periods. The geological city walk will start from the Scheepvaartkwartier and continue on towards the city centre of Rotterdam.

About the author:
Timo G. Nijland is a geologist by background and has been working on studies regarding the identification, degradation, and conservation of stony building materials (i.e., concrete, masonry, natural stone) for over twenty years, especially in the field of built cultural heritage. He co-authored chapters in various books on this subject (a.o., Utrecht in Steen, Onvermoede weelde, Natuursteen in Limburg, natuursteen uit Limburg) and the Stukjes Steen in the KNGMG GeoBrief.
