Leah Ziegler and Joe Stoner are both attending the European Geosciences Union (EGU) conference in Vienna this week. Leah is presenting on her deep earth interior work (see her abstract here) while Joe is presenting recent results from our record from Fish Lake in Oregon (abstract).
Next week the PMag-Lab in conjunction with the OSU Marine Geology Repository are hosting two researchers from the University of Pittsburg. Aubrey Hillman (Ph.D. student) and Dr. Darren Larsen (Post Doc.), both work with Dr. Mark Abbott and are interested in the paleo-environmental record of Fish Lake that PI Joe Stoner and Post Doc. Rob Hatfield along with Dr.s Larsen and Abbott recovered from the southern Wasatch Plateau in Utah in February 2014. Aubrey and Darren will be staying with us for the whole week next week as we split, sample and sample the cores for paleomagnetic and paleoenvironmental analyses. More fun in the mud with the PMag-Lab!
