A new blog from the faculty of the Geology Department at The College of Wooster

May 1st, 2009

Welcome! This is the first post of a departmental blog produced by the faculty in the Department of Geology at The College of Wooster. It is designed as a means by which we can communicate with ourselves and our students about research and other items of interest to geologists. We are especially interested in blogging from our various summer research locations, including brief descriptions of our work and that of our students. We also want to share our enthusiasm for geology with anyone who stops by this blog.

The geology faculty at Wooster who will be posting text, images and videos are: Shelley Judge (structural geologist and tectonicist), Meagen Pollock (mineralogist and petrologist), Greg Wiles (glacial geologist, geomorphologist, dendrochronologist), and Mark Wilson (paleontologist, stratigrapher and sedimentologist). Please visit our Department of Geology homepage for more information about our program and our many opportunities for students.
