Journal of Geosciences Volume XV
The Denison Journal of the Geosciences is written and edited by the students and faculty of the Department of Geology and Geography. Production is overseen by the Office Services staff of Denison University. The Journal of the Geosciences is intended as a means of communicating various topics in the geoscinces and as a forum for presenting student research to audiences outside of the department. Articles submitted from outside sources are welcome. We are extremely grateful to the Denison University Research Foundation (D.U.R.F.) for the financial support that makes this publication possible.

- Christine Dektor 2003, She is working on a B.S. in Geology with a possible minor in Biology. Her primary interest is Paleontology.
- Rick Henterly 2002, A geology major with plans of attaining a B.S, he has participated in numerous geology field trips; the most recent being those to West Virginia in the Fall of 1999 and California during Spring Break of 2000. He plans to continue his education in the geosciences by staying active in the department and taking part in internships and travel opportunities.
- Christa J. Lackmeyer 2002, A geology major working on a B.S. She participated on departmental field trips to West Virginia this fall and California over spring break.
- Michael Harty 2001, will graduate with a B.S. in Geology. He will be spending most of this summer in field camp with the University of Missouri in the Wind River Range of Wyoming. His primary areas of interest lie in Structural Geology and Exploration Geology.
- Matthew V. Kohlbecker 2000, president of the C. L. Herrick geology society, will graduate with a B.S. in Geology. He wrote his senior thesis on joint patterns in central Ohio and, along with Dr. David C. Greene, presented the results at the Midwest GSA sectional meeting in April. He will be pursuing graduate studies in Hydrogeology at the University of Nevada at Reno in the Fall of 2000.
- Kristen Lydy 2000, vice-president of the C. L. Herrick society, will be attending field camp out west through the State University of New York at Buffalo after graduation. In the Fall, she will start graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh working on fluid migration and paleomagnitism of the Appalachian Mountains.
- David R. Pettersson 2000, secretary of the C. L. Herrick society, will graduate with a B. S. in Geology this spring. This summer, he plans to spend a month in Cuba studying geology and land use before beginning field camp in northwest Wyoming through the University of Miami (OH). Graduate study in the geosciences will ensue soon thereafter.
