Geology Graduate Students, Faculty Participate in Annual Geological Society of American Meeting

The Geological Society of America annual meeting is one of the largest scientific gatherings of geologists each year, and the Ohio University Geological Sciences Department historically sends a large contingent of students and faculty to showcase their research.

This year the GSA meeting is online from Oct. 26-30, but departmental participation is still strong, with department members, including four graduate students and six faculty members, participating in seven presentations.
