Geoscience and Water Science students present at national conference
Three UW-Green Bay undergraduate students presented posters at the Geological Society of America – Connects 2022 National Conference on October 8-12, 2022.
Two of the students, Justice Saxby and Arianna Hilbert, were supervised by Geoscience Professor John Luczaj and presented topics related to water-rock interaction in carbonate rocks from south China. Their work was part of a 3-year NSF-REU grant.
Another student, Kyle Chaudoir, was supervised by former Water Science faculty member Kelly Deuerling on water quality in a karst aquifer near the Ahnapee River.
Student Poster Titles:
Justice Saxby: Analysis of Carbonate Diagenesis on the Great Bank of Guizhou (South China) Using Geochemical, Geothermometric, and Geochronologic Techniques.
Arianna Hilbert: Mechanisms for Dolomitization of the Lower Triassic Anshun Formation of the Yangtze Platform: A Case for Regional High Temperature Dolomitization in the Nanpanjiang Basin, South China.
Kyle Chaudoir: Characterizing Nutrient Release and Relative Storage Times in an Unconfined Karst Aquifer in Northeast Wisconsin. Kyle was also coauthor with Kelly Deuerling for an oral presentation titled “A Case Study in Local Management Practices: Sediment and Nutrient Mobilization During Reservoir Drawdown in Door County, Wisconsin.”
