GSA 2013 – Celebrating 125 years of geology!

DENVER – The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences had a strong showing this past week at the national meeting of the Geological Society of America. This year is the society’s 125 anniversary and they really pulled out all the stops at the meeting. It was a HUGE and truly dynamic meeting! Left-Hand Brewery even crafted a special microbrew to help us celebrate! Over 8,000 academics, graduate students, undergraduate students, and professionals were in attendance. The entire faculty (Drs. Fox, Pearson, Rademacher, and Burmeister) and three Pacific students (Katie Teague ’15, Andrew Dai Wilson ’14, and Brittany Klemm ’14) traveled to Denver for the meeting.

We were also reunited with former Pacificans and long-time friends, Win McLaughlin and Kari (McLaughlin) Godfrey. Win was at the meeting presenting the research she is conducting at the University of Oregon for her PhD in vertebrate Paleontology. Kari came to the meeting to help build professional contacts and to explore potential graduate programs. It was a truly great meeting!
