The southern island of Heimaey in Iceland.
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 ...
Larsen B Ice Shelf
Antarctic Larsen Ice Shelf Course Starts July 11
Five Hamilton students will be joined by 12 additional students from seven colleges and five countries (Belgium, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and United States) for a two-week course on the marine geology of Antarctica's Larsen Ice Shelf. This National Science Foundation-sponsored program, related to the International Polar Year (IPY) and the LARISSA project (Larsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica), will take an interdisciplinary approach in examining the reason for the ice shelf's dramatic breakup in 2002.

Researchers David Bailey, Maddy Gunter '11, Alissa Nauman and Nathan Goodale
Gunter ’11 Collaborates on Archaeological and Geological Research
In June, Madeleine (Maddy) Gunter ’11, Assistant Professor of Anthropology Nathan Goodale, Associate Professor of Geosciences David Bailey and Science Center Administrator Alissa Nauman conducted archaeological and geological field research on Inishark, an island off the west central coast of Ireland. More ...
Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland.
Field Study in Iceland
For a country with a population smaller than that of Wyoming, Iceland drew a lot of attention this spring when a more typically dormant volcano erupted and brought European air travel to a stop. Over the next two weeks, several Hamilton students will be able to observe for themselves this spectacular country and its many unique geologic features. More ...
Hanna Kahrmann-Zadak '12 takes her daily sample from a well in Clinton village.
Digging Deep Into Clinton’s Well Water
Every morning, Hanna Kahrmann-Zadak ’12 rides her bike from outside Clinton up the Hill to get to the lab. But before reaching her destination, she makes three pit stops to pick up her samples from two wells and nearby Oriskany Creek. She and Associate Professor of Geosciences Todd Rayne are embarking on a project that could prove extremely significant, especially to the community of Clinton: plotting the changes in the components of groundwater and of Oriskany Creek as they correlate to precipitation events. More ...
Eugene Domack
Domack to Be Interviewed on WRVO's Weekly Edition
WRVO’s The Campbell Conversations – Conversations in the Public Interest will feature an interview with Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Environmental Studies, at noon on Friday, June 4. Domack will speak about Antarctica and climate change, the recent earthquake in Chile, the Deep Water oil well blow out and the local natural gas exploration effort in the Marcellus shale via hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracking. More ...
Katharine Cashman
Geologist Recounts Mount St. Helens' Eruptions
Katharine Cashman became an expert on Mount St. Helens largely by accident. She isn’t a great geologist, she said during her presentation on April 13 in the Science Center, because she likes studying geologic processes that unfold on a time scale that she can watch. Volcanic activity is one such process, and Cashman, the head of the geosciences department at the University of Oregon, has devoted much of her life to studying the science behind the eruptions of Mount St. Helens. More ...
University of Oregon Geologist to Discuss Mt. St. Helens in Lecture
Kathy Cashman, professor of geology at the University of Oregon, will give a lecture titled “Mt. St. Helens: A Tale of Three Decades” on Tuesday, April 13, at 7 p.m., in the Science Center Kennedy Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. More ...
Chile Earthquake Devastation
Domack Presents
“Impact of the Fifth Largest Earthquake in History on a Developed Latin American Country: the February 2010 Concepción ‘Teremoto,’” Domack’s lecture on Thursday, April 8, presented a summary of his experiences in this volunteer mission and an overview of the regional geology of the area and the devastation wrought by the earthquake, aftershocks and tsunamis. More ...
Chile Earthquake Devastation
Domack to Present on Chile Earthquake
Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Environmental Studies, will present “Impact of the Fifth Largest Earthquake in History on a Developed Latin American Country: the February 2010 Concepción ‘Teremoto’” on Thursday, April 8, at 7 p.m., in the Science Center’s Kennedy Auditorium. Domack recently returned from Chile where he did volunteer work in the aftermath of the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck off the coast of Maule, Chile, on Feb. 27. More ...
