Utilizing the Shale Hills CZO and beyond, four senior geosciene majors from the College of Earth and Mineral Science at Penn State presented research ranging from the geochemistry of soil profiles and Rose Hill shale weathering along the shale transect to water chemistry and erosional history of central PA. Each of these students, in addittion to their 29 fellow classmates, wrote theses and gave oral presentations of their projects. Cheers to the 2013 Spring Geoscience graduates!
