Dr. Miles Kenney, PG, Consultant Geologist, will be presenting on the Late Quaternary stratigraphic and structural development of the Cheviot Hills / Century City area.
Topic: "Late Quaternary stratigraphic and structural development of the Cheviot Hills / Century City area"
Speaker: Miles Kenney
Dr. Kenney has over 20 years of professional experience working as a Geologist in the southwestern United States. Areas of expertise include fault hazard evaluation (paleoseismology), desert landscapes (alluvial fans, aeolian systems - dunes), basin scale stratigraphy (assists in groundwater studies), structural geology, stratigraphy, and neotectonics.
Miles Kenney earned a Bachelors in Science degree from San Diego State University in 1989 with a Geology Major and minor in Chemistry. He then worked for Leighton and associates for 5 years as a geotechnical geologist primarily involving numerous fault investigations of the Elsinore Fault Zone working with Dr. Tom Rockwell and taking a million sand cone density tests on various grading projects! From 1994 to 1999 Miles completed his doctorate degree at the University of Oregon working with Dr. Ray Weldon.
After receiving his PhD, Miles then worked for Earth Consultants for over a year then began teaching at San Diego State University and various community colleges in San Diego County. From 2002 to 2009 Dr. Kenney worked at Petra Geotechnical as their fault hazard specialist managing numerous fault investigation studies in southern California. From 2009 to the present time he has worked as an independent Geologic consultant via Kenney GeoScience. Recent projects have involved structural evaluation of Basin and Range structure in the Mojave Desert for groundwater storage projects (Cadiz Groundwater and Storage Project), fault and stratigraphic evaluation of the Cheviot Hills, evaluation of sand dune systems regarding dust emissions and preservation of habitat (numerous solar energy projects and the Los Angeles Department of Energy and Power).

Dr. Kenney has over five years experience in geotechnical investigations and six years in geological research focusing on Quaternary geology, structural geology, igneous and sedimentary petrology, geomorphology, seismology (earthquakes), kinematics, and neotectonics.He has experience in fault hazard investigations, including trenching, field mapping, surveying, and aerial photograph interpretation.His geotechnical experience includes field slope stability evaluations and mitigation, large and small diameter drilling, geologic mapping, cross-sections, drafting, writing reports, and grading operations on residential, school and commercial properties.Regarding seismic hazards, Miles can perform both deterministic and probabilistic analyses as required by the state of California and Federal Government.
His research involved detailed geologic mapping in crystalline basement and sedimentary rocks, thin section analysis, balanced cross-sections, structure contour maps, locating earthquakes with a 3Dinversion program, and determining focal mechanisms and strain axis via summed moment tensors of focal mechanisms.He has worked cooperatively with project managers and subcontractors, and supervised field personnel.Dr. Kenney is proficient with many graphical, numerical, and communication software applications on several computer platforms including Macintosh, Unix, and IBM.
