Faculty note: Geoscience student presents NSF-Funded Research at National Conference
Geoscience Major Neda Mobasher presented her research poster at this week’s Geological Society of America Conference in Portland, Oregon. Neda’s poster was titled “A Calcite Investigation on the Great Bank of Guizhou in the Nanpanjiang Basin, South China,” and is part of a collaborative effort with students and faculty from UW-Green Bay and Trinity University (Texas) to understand the conditions of water-rock interaction.
Her poster is displayed on the first floor of the Lab Sciences building.
Faculty from both institutions (John Luczaj, UW-Green Bay; and Dan Lehrmann, Trinity University) received parallel three-year grants from the National Science Foundation’s Collaborative Research RUI for “Testing mechanisms for regional dolomitization of Triassic carbonate platforms across the Nanpanjiang Basin of South China.” Although the Covid-19 pandemic prevented travel to China during this past summer, Luczaj and Lehrmann hope to take students to China during the next two summers to train them to conduct and publish their research.
