As part of the Geoscience Earth Talks series, several Winona State University students will present their student-faculty research projects at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, in the Science Laboratory Center, room 120.
Highlights of the projects include: using virtual tours and Google Earth to promote geotourism, evaluating environmental factors contributing to the thermal regulation of trout streams, and analyzing techniques for assessing sediment erosion in southeastern Minnesota.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
These select student-faculty research projects also will be presented at the Geological Society of America (GSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition Oct. 9-12 in Minneapolis, which will be attended by all WSU geoscience faculty and more than 40 current students and alumni. Approximately 6,000 professional and academic scientists from around the world are expected to attend this annual meeting.
The GSA’s mission is to advance the geosciences, to enhance the professional growth of its members, and to promote the geosciences in the service of humanity. GSA provides geoscientists from all sectors - academic, government, and industry - with a vehicle for expressing core professional values of science, stewardship, and service.
