Cole is the new postdoc joining the lab, fresh off finishing his Ph.D. at Ohio State. Cole is interested in better constraining environmental and biogeochemical evolution over the Paleozoic.
New graduate students Jocelyn Richardson & Roger Bryant, both from St. Andrews, UK, will be joining us in Fall 2014. Looking forward to having them in lab!
Fike and Dr. Catherine Rose attended the ICDP-sponsored workshop on Drilling the Neoproterozoic, held at the British Geological Society in Keyworth. A lively discussion of Neoproterozoic strata, leading to possible plans to set up drilling programs in China, Brazil, and the White Sea in the coming years.
Safely returned from the Osservatorio Geologico di Coldigioco for a spring break trip to the Apennines, as part of our class (EPSc 400: Geology of Italy) with Dr. Catherine Rose and Prof. Phil Skemer.
Our new 7f/geo met its installation specs without a hitch and we are off and running. Looking ahead, we are planning to examine spatial variability in isotopic proxies on spatial scales from microns to centimeters, using that data to reinterpret many of our bulk-rock based records of biogeochemical cycling throughout Earth history.
