Wooster Geologists at the 2012 Senior Research Symposium

April 27th, 2012

WOOSTER, OHIO–Six Wooster geology seniors presented their research to the campus and public this morning in Kauke Hall on the College of Wooster campus. They were among the first posters in the annual Senior Research Symposium in which Independent Study projects are highlighted and celebrated. They did very well — their geology faculty advisors are proud indeed. Here they are with their presentations:

Sarah Appleton ’12: Dating of the Mid-Holocene History and Glacial Stratigraphy of the Wachusett Inlet, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Southeast Alaska. (Links to Sarah’s work on the Wooster Geologist’s blog.)

Lindsey Bowman ’12: Geochemical and Field Relationships of Pillow and Dike Units in a Subglacial Pillow Unit, Undirhlíðar Quarry, Southwest Iceland. (Links to Lindsey’s work on the Wooster Geologists blog.)
