Launching the Geotechnical Web Site

Technology sharing and communications play a key role in cost-effective geotechnical engineering. Michael Mitchell, SDTDC project engineer, and Mary Trankel, MTDC Webmaster, worked together to develop a geotechnical Web site on the Forest Service's internal computer network (http://fsweb.sdtdc.wo.fs.fed.us/geotech/).

At this Web site, geotechnical engineers can share innovative ideas and current information about geotechnical engineering. The site can also benefit other Forest Service employees working in civil engineering, geology, dams, hydrology, and other programs.

Information is organized into the following sections:

A special administrative area is protected by a secure login system. Once authorized, a Web site coordinator can easily add, edit, or delete Web site content by filling out Web page forms.

Share your geotechnical information or field experiences by contacting one of the Web site coordinators. Help make this site a success.

For more information, contact Mike Mitchell, project engineer (phone: 909–599–1267, ext. 246; e-mail: mrmitchell@fs.fed.us) or Mary Trankel, Webmaster (phone: 406–829–6726; e-mail: mtrankel@fs.fed.us).
