NSF awards enable CC's Anderson to pursue seismic project, alumni to do research in geology, ecology

A National Science Foundation award enabled Megan Anderson, Colorado College assistant professor of geology, to pursue a project installing seismic stations in Argentina this summer. The seismic recording stations will be combined with a temporary network of seismic stations already running in Argentina . Over the next four years, the project will provide research opportunities for three to four CC students who will analyze seismic data and service seismic equipment. Anderson was awarded the $195,425 NSF grant in May. Colorado College alumni fared well with NSF graduate research fellowships this year, as well. Fellowships went to CC alumni Jonathan Rotzien '07, Stella Copeland '05 and William Wieder '01. Rotzien, who worked as a paraprofessional in the economics and business department after graduating, was awarded a geology fellowship for graduate work at Stanford University. Copeland's fellowship is for graduate work in ecology at University of Florida; and Wieder's fellowship is for graduate research in ecology at University of Colorado-Boulder. Jessica Creveling '06 also received an honorable mention for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
