Spring Meeting 2012 Follow-up

Thanks to Kevin McCartney, David Putnam and Chunzeng Wang, the Geology/Ecology Club, and the rest of our friends at UMPI for arranging our spring meeting at Presque Isle. We had a very successful panel discussion on professional activities and

employment by Liz Champeon and Cliff Lippitt. There was good audience participation, and extensive discussion in the halls afterward. Those in attendance saw some interesting student posters and oral presentations. Congratulations to Anderson Award winners Peter Strand and Patrick Ryan, both of the University of Maine for casino online their poster on their fieldwork in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica. We also heard an outstanding presentation by Steve Kite, formerly a
Maine geologist, now on the faculty at West Virginia University, about the “ice caves” of the Appalachians.

This year”s summer field trip will be held August 3-5, and will be led by Doug Reusch and Tom Weddle. We will look at the bedrock and surficial geology of the Mt. Blue area. Check the newsletter and stay tuned for more details.
