This week the lab group is participating in the Geological Society of America’s Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. Here’s a list of the presentations.


Emma Tulsky is giving a poster on the using carbon and sulfur isotopes to track the chemical changes in sedimentary rocks during contact metamorphism

Contact Metamorphism and the release of carbon and sulfur volatiles: A study of the effects of diabase emplacement


Undergraduate Matt Petroff is giving a poster on carbon and sulfur cycles in subduction zones.

Syros, Greece: A geochemical window into subduction zone processes


Master student Sam Ritzer is presenting her work on accessing environment of deposition of a Triassic Lake and its relationship to deposit of well preserved fossils
