A total of 12 posters and papers were presented by Colorado College students and recent alumni at the Geological Society of America’s most recent meeting, held Oct. 28-31 in Denver. Three papers and nine posters were presented by members of the class of 2007 and ’08.
“Colleagues of mine from other schools – top liberal arts colleges and major research universities – were to a person astounded when I told them how many undergraduate students we had presenting at the Denver meeting,” said Eric Leonard, CC geology professor. Nine of the papers/posters were co-authored with CC geology faculty.
Members of the class of ’08 whose work was presented include Adam Plourde, Rose Vail, and Matt Rosales; members of the class of ’07 include Caroline Alden, Philip Armstrong, Nancy Calhoun, Caitlyn Florentine, Helen Lynn, Andrew Nelson, Emily Parker, Jon Rotzien, and Karri Sicard.
The meeting is one of two major national geo-science meetings held each year, with the other being the American Geophysical Union meeting in December. At least five CC students will present their work there.
