Asmara Lehrmann is spending a few weeks this summer at the University of Alabama to start her undergraduate senior thesis. For her project, she went into the field with the help of the University of Alabama and the University of Southern Mississippi to collect a core that contains the complete record of the Anthropocene and Holocene in Mobile Bay. In this 10 meter long core, she will be using a Malvern Mastersizer to measure grain size, an XRF to study geochemistry, and she will be studying the foraminifera. She is working with another undergraduate student from UA, and their data will go into a graduate student’s larger project. The goal of their project is to understand the human impacts on the frequency and severity of Harmful Algal Blooms in Mobile Bay. #trinityuniversity#geosciences#summer#research
This weekend, the Citrus College Bridge to the Geosciences team left for Boulder, Colorado. They will spend 10 days learning about and engaging in research activities with scientists at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. Bridge to the Geosciences is a three-year project funded by the National Science Foundation (@nsfgov). It is designed to give Citrus College students an opportunity to explore the possibilities the geosciences hold for all STEM majors.
Happy Father’s Day!
Pictured here is James Hutton, a Scottish geologist, know as the Father of Modern Geology!! He was also a chemist, naturalist, and remembered for being the originator of one of the fundamental principles of geology—uniformitarianism! His work helped established geology as a true science! #happyfathersday#geology#jameshutton#fatherofgeology#geosciences
#featurefriday With incredible innovation erupting from our very own community, supporting a successful career for #womeningeology , and contributing to how we view the world today with groundbreaking research and science, @covergalls is proud to partner and support our newest affiliate, @heslaurentian. The Harquail School of Earth Sciences (HES) at @laurentianu is known for their excellence in mineral exploration research and earth science education. Located on the southern rim of one of the world's largest, oldest, and best-exposed meteorite impact sites, close to numerous base metal mines and a large variety of rock types, Sudbury provides unique opportunities for field instruction, pure and applied research.
The Earth Science (Geology) program attracts people who are curious about our earth, how minerals and rocks form, what makes volcanoes and earthquakes, why minerals and gems have different colours, what causes climate change, or how do you find an ore deposit? Students enter into an exciting and flexible career exploring 4.5 billion years of Earth's history, and discover, how, why, and when our planet came to be the way it is. Geoscientists travel worldwide to explore the outdoors, hiking, camping, making geological observations, while still being a scientist back in the lab. Stay tuned as @covergalls features the various female students and their #geojourney during the duration of their program 💙 #earthscience#geology#womeningeology#womeninstem#mineralexploration#meteorite#womeninmining#rockformation#minerals#earthhistory#geosciences#geoscience#womeningeoscience#adventureoutdoors#unconventionalcareers#womenwhorock#womenwhoexplore
Люблю эти вулканические озера и свой поход на вулкан в парке Тонгариро настолько, что выложу этих ребят еще раз. Самое удивительное географическое приключение, которое бывало со мной. Даже подумала, что нужно составить список географических достижений, до которых никому нет дела. "Список географических достижений до которых никому нет дела":
1. Поднялась на вулкан ( и спустилась ещё) в южном полушарии сразу после трехдневного перелета и не сдохла✔️
"I don't want to suggest that science is not creative, because science is creative. It takes an enormous amount of imagination and creativity to create knowledge. As much as we like to think of it as being this objective thing, where information just tells us what it wants us to know, that's not really the way it works. We have to interpret data. And interpreting data—or even creating the data that we're interpreting—that whole process is exploratory. We're exploring information and trying to tease out different nuanced meanings. And that has many layers, and many ways of looking at it, and many ways we can filter (figuratively speaking) that information. And I think of that process as very similar to the way that people might create art—that we're exploring. The subject matter might be different, but we're both exploring information from different perspectives, and along different layers, or along different themes, in order to really create something."

“We are excited to sign this exclusive right as it will allow us to identify new targets and potential acquisitions to add to our property portfolio. We believe that innovations like that of Eagle Geosciences is the beginning of potential solutions that address the complex challenges mineral exploration companies face". - Michael Ferreira, President and CEO, X-Terra

UBC Partners Visit Central Asia
Through the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Geography and Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences departments, UBC is assisting the University of Central Asia with the curriculum design of 22 courses for EES. Four UBC representatives from Canada visited UCA in Khorog (May 5th to 20th) and Bishkek and Naryn (May 20th to 25th) as part of a contextualisation visit for UCA’s EES programme.
In Tajikistan, the UBC team explored Alichur, Langar, Darshai and Khorog to scope out potential sites for field trips. In addition, they met with UCA students, as well as various UCA and external experts including from UCA’s MSRI, Mountain Societies Development Support Programme Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan and the Pamir Biological Institute. In Bishkek, Phil Hammer, Sessional Lecturer and Honorary Research Associate at UBC attended meetings with organisations working closely with the environment, civic engagement and environmental pollution including the Aarhus Centre, and the Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences.
On 6 June, the GSA WA Division Monthly Meeting will host Jens Klump (@csirogram), who will present the talk entitled 'Can we teach #machines Geology? The role of data science in the #geosciences '. If you're interesting in attending this fascinating talk, please come to the Irish Club of WA (Inc.), 61 Townshend Road, Subiaco, between Hay Street and Churchill Ave at 5.30pm. We look forward to seeing you there. Imahe: Jens Klump #geology#geological#geologicalsocietyofaustralia
