From characterising flow pathways in outcrops and the shallow subsurface to examining weathering processes and soil formation, three geoscience undergraduates complete their capstone thesis projects using geophysical tools to examine the critical zone in Shale Hills. Congrats to your success Nick, Chad, and Joey!
Nick Schuler - "Ground-truthing Subsurface Variations in Seismic Velocities and Electrical Resistivity using Outcrop Observations, Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory (Dr. Andrew Nyblade)"
Chad Cole - "Using Seismic Refraction to Examine the Formation and Weathering Processes of the Critical Zone (Dr. Andrew Nyblade)"
Joey Grant - "Characterising the Shallow Subsurface of the Critical Zone Using Seismic Refraction in the Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory (Dr. Andrew Nyblade)"
Post graduation, Nick will spend the summer as an intern with the PA Geologic Survey and begin his Master's of Geophyscis graduate research program at LSU in fall 2019. Chad has yet to decide, but will likely land with the National Park Service or with Geo-Technology Associates very soon.
