Student-Faculty Research

Six geology students have been working with Dr. Friehauf, Dr. Tindall and Dr. Lane Schultz (of Berks Products Corp.) investigating cave formation and groundwater flow at a nearby quarry.

The research has resulted in one publication so far. * denotes undergraduate co-author:

*Wolfinger, Seth, *Ward, Kristen, *Holland, Jeremy, *Nase, A. M., *Ferguson, Elizabeth, *Zellner, Greg C., Tindall, Sarah E. and Schultz, Lane M., 2004, A multidisciplinary study of controls on ground-water flow in a karst aquifer in the Ordovician Beekmantown Group, Berks County, PA: Geological Society of America Abstracts with Programs.

Student-Faculty Research

Students monitored and sampled groundwater wells, and mapped fractures, springs and dissolution pathways in the pit!

Student-Faculty Research

Greg Zellner and Tama Scherer traveled to Utah with Dr. Tindall in summer of 2003 to investigate ancient faults.

The research has resulted in one publication so far:

*Zellner, G. C and Tindall, S.E., 2004, Structural evidence for syntectonic sedimentation within the Cretaceous Wahweap Formation, Kaibab Uplift, Utah: Geological Society of America Abstracts with Programs.

Student-Faculty Research

Zach Artz, Kristen Ward and Lisa Ferguson accompanied Dr. Friehauf to China in 2004 to study rocks at a rare-earth element mine.

Student-Faculty Research

Katie Hoefert and Dr. Tindall traveled around southern Utah in summer of 2003 studying exposures of fractures that affect oil and natural gas reservoirs

The research has resulted in one publication so far:

Hoefert, Catherine M. and Tindall, Sarah E., 2004, Orientation and spacing of joints in deformation band shear zones east of Mount Hillers, Utah: Geological Society of America Abstracts with Programs v. 36 no. 2 p. 102.

Student-Faculty Research

In 2003-’04, Dave Fillmore, Renee Scalise, Greg Zellner and Dr. Simpson studied fossilized footprints made by big swimming amphibians.

Student-Faculty Research

Dr. Simpson and Dr. Tindall are studying ancient earthquake-related features in Utah. Tim Jenesky, Jon Bernard, Megan Orsulak and Ed Tester participated in the project in 2005-’06.
