Geoscience students presented their research during Research Appreciation Week 2015 at IUP as well as at the Pittsburgh Geological Society student night.
Two of the main IUP events during this time were the Women in Mathematics, Science, and Technology Program (WMST) and the Undergraduate Scholars Forum (USF). Eighteen Geoscience students presented their independent research, with four students winning awards.
There was a video produced about the IUP Undergraduate Scholars Forum, and Geoscience student Troy Berkey can be seen talking about his research on lava flow mapping in Oregon. Check him out at minute 3:38!
Graduating senior Matthew Magill also won second place for his poster presentation research titled “Kinematic Indicators of Shear and the Role of Volcanic Pressurization at the Heart Mountain Detachment” at the Pittsburgh Geological Society Student Night.
Congratulation to all of our students that presented at these events—you represented our department extremely well.
