Israeli Graduate Student Yael Leshno Afriat summarizes her work in the Middle Jurassic of Israel

For several years I’ve been in the advising circle of Yael Leshno Afriat, a geology graduate student at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She has been working in the gorgeous Middle Jurassic units of northern and southern Israel — rocks and fossils I fell in love with way back in 2003. (Search “Israel” in this blog for dozens of posts on our fieldwork, which has included many Wooster students.) In the video above, Yael summarizes her PhD work in a seminar. It is very well done. It makes a beautiful capstone for my extraordinary geological experiences in Israel. Thank you, Yael, for such brilliant and detailed science. I’ve learned so much from you.
