Gustavus students and faculty to present research at GSA

Posted on October 30th, 2012 by

This weekend, a size-able contingent of Gustavus faculty and students head to Charlotte, NC for the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. Prof. Bartley is giving a talk on modern stromatolites in a high-altitude lake in the Andes, while her student researcher Tara Selly (’13, Geology and Biology) will present a poster describing results of their research using modern cyanobacteria as analogs for interpreting fossil algae.  Rachel Oien (’13, Geology and Environmental Studies) will present a poster on her summer REU project studying soil properties in a tropical montane forest in Costa Rica.  Prof. Jeff Jeremiason (Chemistry and Env. Studies), Alison Agather (’13, Chemistry and Env. Studies, w/ Geology minor) and Emily Seelen (’13, Biology and Env. Studies) will each present posters on their research into mercury dynamics in northern Minnesota peat bogs. Prof. Welsh will be in attendance, as well. If any of you Gustie alums or friends are attending GSA, please stop by these posters to say hi and learn about the fascinating things our students and faculty have been working on this year!
