Don Gautier is a research geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park. Prior to joining the Survey in 1977, he worked for Mobil Exploration in Denver and took a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Colorado. His research has focused upon the distribution of natural gas resources in low permeability reservoirs, and upon the prediction of undiscovered oil and gas. He was the project chief and first author of the USGS 1995 National Assessment of United States Oil and Gas Resources and is currently working on the World Energy Project.

A year ago, we had a field trip to Big Sur. That field guide has been revised by Robert Zatkin and is available online. If you want a treekiller version (it's 217 pages long), email Mike Diggles at firstname.lastname@example.org for that also and I'll send them out as they get printed in our spare time (about 25 a week from Luther).
