Geoscience Students Discuss Summer Field Research in the Cascades

Posted on 9/4/2014 8:09:19 AM

The Geoscience Department welcomes anyone interested in geology to attend our first weekly seminar on Friday, September 5, at 12:20 p.m. in Walsh 104. Nine students who did field research in the Oregon Cascade Mountains this past summer will be recounting their adventures and scientific discoveries. Pizza will be provided!

The Oregon research trip, led by Nick Deardorff with assistance from Jon Lewis, was one of the first projects to be sponsored by IUP’s new 21st Century Field Geology Fund, whose support also came from generous geoscience alumni donations. Samples and data from the trip will form the basis of several student and faculty research projects in the coming year. Please join us to learn about what they found and see why IUP students will probably be heading back to the Cascades in the future.
