Wooster Earth Scientists at their annual “Mock GSA” — 2018 version

November 1st, 2018

Wooster, Ohio — Every Fall the students and faculty of Wooster’s Earth Sciences Department look forward to participating in the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. Next week the meeting will be held in Indianapolis, and over a dozen Wooster Scots will be there. We’re bringing seven student and faculty posters. Today we had our usual practice presentation, which we call “Mock GSA”. I didn’t get images of all the participants, but at least you’ll see the enthusiasm of the group! Above are the posters displayed in Scovel Room 205.

Evan Shadbolt is above on the right discussing his poster (authored with our esteemed alumna Tricia Kelley) on modern shell boring patterns off Long Island, New York. Galen Schwartzberg is to the left in front of her poster on Jurassic sclerobionts in southwestern Utah.

Juwan Shabazz, Kendra Devereux, and Alexis Lanier are discussing their poster on tree-ring chronology patterns in Ohio.

Ben Sershen is pointing to a graph on his poster about Arctic sea ice.

Ethan Killian is presenting his poster on oyster balls of the Jurassic in southwestern Utah.

Josh Charlton and Victoria Race’s poster is on mass balance estimates and dynamics of Columbia Glacier in Alaska. Behind Josh are the hands of Michael Thomas on his poster on central Utah structural geology.

Galen Schwartzberg is here again with her poster on Jurassic sclerobionts in the Carmel Formation of southwestern Utah.

Good luck to everyone in Indianapolis! Our next posts will be from the GSA meeting.
