 Trips for the Environment: 

Experiences from two undergrads

Lunchtime colloquium with Caleb McBride and Tierra Moore

November 15, 12:00pm, Keck Hall 102

During May 2013,  Caleb traveled to the Western Cape of South Africa with MTU and collected geologic data in the field to produce several geologic maps and a paper covering the geologic history of South Africa. These sedimentary basins are analogous to the petroliferous Kwanza Basin off the coast of Angola. Tierra analyzed greenhouse gas production rates in Spartina alterniflora and Avicennia germinans soils impacted by the BP oil spill in Barataria Bay, Louisiana.
