SUU Geoscientists to Present at the Geological Society of America MeetingOctober 27, 2004
Author: Renee Ballenger
Two of Southern Utah University’s geoscientists, Dr. Robert Eves, professor of chemistry and geology, and Dr. Mark Colberg, assistant professor of geology, will be presenting their research at the 116th annual meeting of the Geological Society of America.
More than 6,000 geoscientists from across the nation will gather in Denver the second week of November to collaborate on their field’s latest discoveries.
Various topics in Geosciences will be highlighted at the meeting, and Eves’ and Colberg’s presentations will be among them. Eves’, titled “Encouraging Scientific Literacy Through Extended Natural History Field Trips That Focus On Integrated Science,” reveals details of the undergraduate research that is is taking place by SUU students in Cedar City’s “own backyard”—which individuals knowledgeable in the field call “a geologist’s dream world.”
Colberg’s presentation, “Significance of Biotite Textures in Amphibolite Facies Metapelites: Deep Extension in the Northern Snake Range, Nevada,” shares details on some intriguing finds from the Snake and Deep Creeks Ranges.
Both presentations are reflective of the meaningful work these professors are executing with undergraduates at SUU.
