This summer Dr. Mike O’Neal’s GEOL306 students took a three week trip to classic study areas in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and South Dakota. Students employed a variety of field techniques for describing rocks/sediments/outcrops, making cross sections, and geology maps. It was a long trip but everyone had a great time.

Room 209 Penny Hall
Welcome our Newest Faculty Members
Dr. Adam F Wallace
Dr. Wallace has arrived and setting up his research lab. His research interests are: low-temperature aqueous geochemistry, environmental mineralogy, geobiology, and geochemical modeling.
Dr. Claudio Berti
Dr. Berti is a tectonic geomorphologist with a very diverse array of skills. He will be teaching Geology 105 and Geology 108 this term, helping us develop our field programs, and hopefully teaching us about tectonic geomorphology!
