Geoscience Students Present at Pittsburgh Geological Society

Posted on 4/20/2010 8:36:24 AM

Four Geoscience undergraduate students are presenting their research at the Pittsburgh Geological Society (PGS) annual student night.

These students have been working for the past year (or longer) with Geoscience Department faculty on their independent research.


  • Jason Ames: “Creating a Classification System for Lunar Crater Rays”
  • Matthew Harding: “Vein Structures and Faults in Core Samples from IODP Expedition 315, Nankai Trough: Preliminary Observations” 
  • Ellen Lamont: “Spatial and Temporal Analysis of Non-recoverable Strain Geometry as Documented by the Inversion of Earthquake Focal Mechanisms in West-Central Taiwan”
  • Surinder Tara: “Constraints on 3-D Deformation at the Nankai Subduction Zone: Fault Kinematic Analysis of Core-Scale Faults at Site C0001 of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 315”
