Junior Kay Paradis and senior Joe Dusza, (Earth, Environment, and Physics) presented their research at the northeastern section of the Geological Society of America annual meeting in Burlington, Vt.
They joined Associate Professor Tim Cook (Earth, Environment, and Physics) and James Lenoir ’17, who is a graduate student at Boston College, conducting field work in Maine and New Hampshire last summer.
Paradis, an environmental science major, presented her research on erosion based on a sediment core from Little Kennebago Lake, Maine. The goal was to better constrain the relative impacts of climatically forced erosion and human impacts related to intense logging. “These results highlight the potential for human activity to make the landscape more susceptible to erosion,” according to the project’s abstract.
Dusza, a geography major, presented his research on “gem-quality moonstone is readily available within glacial till and the schists, gneisses, and granulites in eastern Hampden County, Mass.”
LeNoir, who majored in environmental science at WSU, has presented on research he has done on post-glacial sedimentation in Ossipee Lake, New Hampshire with Cook and his graduate advisor Noah Snyder.
