Daily Brief

Kutztown University geology students presented research at the Geological Society of America meeting.

Six Kutztown University geology students presented research at the Geological Society of America meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, Sept. 22-25. Three research projects were a part of Dr. Sarah Tindall’s Roadmaps in GeoScience (RiGS) program, which she funds through a National Science Foundation grant. Dr. Edward Simpson supervised three additional research projects that focused on different aspects of paleontological discoveries made during field expeditions with his students to a major dinosaur quarry in Utah. Students: Claire Santa, Lara Ilsemann, Robert Edris, Mark Domin, David Muller and Eric Dinter, also toured geological sites in Arizona, including Red Rocks of Sedona, Grand Canyon, S P volcanic crater, Meteor Crater (group photo at rim of 50,000-year-old, mile-wide asteroid impact crater), and Petrified Forest National Park.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Partly cloudy skies on the opposite end of yesterday’s slow-moving front. Still could be a few showers around as a low-pressure system along yesterday’s front tries to spin some moisture back our way. Cooler and less humid with highs in the mid-60s.
