Ohio University Geological Sciences faculty and students were a major presence at the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting held Oct. 21-25 in Seattle.

Department members presented nine formal presentations authored by four faculty, four graduate students, and one undergraduate student. Faculty members also chaired two scientific sessions, presented an invited speech on career advice to student members of the Paleontological Society, participated as officers in society governance, and received career awards.

Special sessions were held in honor of Professor Emeritus Royal Mapes and the late Professor Elizabeth Gierlowski-Kordesch. Current department members also connected with alumni and reinforced our shared love of Bobcat Geology.
