Tewksbury Joins Team for NASA Lunar Rover Test

Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury was part of a science team that supported NASA’s 2010 Desert RATS (Research and Technology Studies) project in September in Flagstaff, Az. One of the aims of the mission was to conduct two weeks of geologic field work simulating lunar operations in order to test various data collection and communications scenarios.  More ...

Jennifer Santoro ’11 Conducts Summer Research at Tulane
Environmental studies major Jennifer Santoro '11 explored another avenue of science when she did organic geochemistry research at Tulane University this summer. She worked under the direction of Dr. Brad Rosenheim at Tulane, with the support of an NSF Office of Polar Programs (LARISSA) grant to Eugene Domack, Hamilton’s J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences. More ...

Allinger '11 Examines Deep Sea Corals
Deep Sea corals grow very slowly and hence contain a record of changing oceanographic conditions over time. This summer Theresa Allinger '11 is conducting a geochemical analysis of these deep water corals from Antarctica that grew at 1500 feet below the surface of the Ross Sea. More ...

The Fine Lines of Egypt’s Desert
Most people use the program Google Earth to zoom in on their houses, fly through the Grand Canyon, or maybe to see if their neighbors have pools. But from the geosciences lab of Barbara Tewksbury, Tucker Keren ’13 and Steve Kemp ‘11 are using the program to analyze some fascinating linear features in the southwest corner of the Egyptian desert several hundred kilometers west of Aswan. More ...

Gunter ’11 Research Combines Interests in Archaelogy and Geosciences
Madeleine Gunter ’11 has had a busy and unconventional summer. An archaeology and geosciences double major, Gunter returned from several weeks on an archaeological field project off Ireland’s western coast, only to begin a micropaleontology project that will become her thesis for geosciences. Gunter is working through the data she collected on the composition of Early Medieval Christian tombstones, and using diatoms to predict Antarctic paleoenvironments. More ...

Cassidy Jay ’11 Immersed in Groundwater Study
In the warmer seasons in Central New York, rainstorms can be sudden, violent and torrential, soaking students to the skin as they walk across campus. But for Cassidy Jay ’11, rain this summer means more than damp jeans: it means changes in the chemistry of water samples she collects from the Oriskany Basin. She and Associate Professor of Geosciences Todd Rayne are comparing the chemical composition of stream water before and after a rainstorm in the Oriskany Basin. More ...

Domack Presents at SCAR and Open Science Conference
Eugene Domack, the Joel W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences, presented “A Continuous GPS Network for Measuring Crustal Response to Changes in Ice Mass, a Sub-project of LARISSA (Larsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica) and Polenet” at the XXXI SCAR and Open Science Conference held July 30 through Aug. 11 in Buenos Aires.

Backcountry Camping Tour Highlights Second Week
This is Nora Grenfell's '12 third report from a field study in Iceland.

Our backcountry camping tour of Iceland began our second week. Prior to that, we had been staying in hostels around the capital area, but come Sunday we piled our packs in a bus and prepared for a week on the road. Our bus was nicely equipped with a cooking trailer, and we were accompanied by Sola, our cook (and her daughter Sofia, whose English put us all to shame) our driver, Franz, and our guide, Jon, who has known Professor Tewksbury for more than 30 years!

First Days in Iceland
Nora Grenfell '12 is providing updates from Iceland, where Upson Chair for Public Discourse and Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury is leading eight Hamilton students and nine students from SUNY Oneonta in a 15-day field study.

Our trip began with a 9 p.m. flight from Boston’s Logan international airport, and ended with us arriving four time zones ahead of New York in Iceland at 6:30 a.m. We hit the ground running, driving from Keflavik airport to Reykjavik across the Reykjanes ridge. As we drove, we observed the oldest rocks in Iceland. Since the island has been built up by magma rising from the mid-Atlantic ridge, the oldest rocks are at the edges of Iceland while the youngest land lies in the center on the volcanically active zone. So far we have been able to observe both the older zones in Iceland and areas where there has been volcanic activity as recently as 30 years ago. More ...
