Unearthing the Secret of the Desert Eyes

The untrod sands of the Egyptian Deserts hold a mystery much older than the construction of the pyramids: hundreds of naturally formed “desert eyes” unblinkingly turned toward the sky for tens of millions of years. Yet, despite their age, these structures have almost no topography; in fact, until the advent of Google Earth, these formations, which lie in the desert west of the Nile, were never studied. Josh Wolpert ’16, is working with Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury on the Desert Eyes Project, funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF).  More ...

 Michael Weinzierl ’15
A School of Fish

Although he’s studying barracuda and schoolmaster snappers with the Cape Eleuthera Institute (CEI) in the Bahamas, Michael Weinzierl’s ’15 summer research often feels more like a vacation. Weinzierl is a geoscience major who has “always been interested in marine biology and conservation.” After learning about earth processes from a geological perspective through courses at Hamilton, he decided to apply for hands-on research over the summer. Weinzierl’s internship is supported through the generosity of the Joseph F. Anderson Fund, managed by the Career Center.  More ...

Nicole LaBarge '15
From Farm to Fork: Food Sustainability at Hamilton College

The corn from Ohio, the blueberries from Maine, and the strawberries from California that all ended up at your summer barbeque traveled quite a distance before arriving on your plate. “Farm to Fork,” a term used by the college’s food service provider, Bon Appétit, entails buying locally grown products when possible in order to reduce carbon emissions caused by transporting food long distances, as well as to stimulate the local economy. Nicole LaBarge ’15 is working on a Levitt Project, “Analyzing the Sustainability of Bon Appétit at Hamilton College Using Life Cycle Assessment.”  More ...
