Geology and Geography

2015 GSA Southeastern Section meeting

In March of 2015, Geology students attended the Geological Society of America Southeastern Section meeting and conference. They participated in career workshops, listened to research talks, perused research posters by professionals and students, and learned about Professional Geologist Licensing. As they drove back through the Smokey Mountains, they stopped at several places and studied rock outcrops. Stops included Upper Cullasaja Falls, a well-studied location involving upstream knick point migration of rivers as the Appalachians are potentially being rejuvenated.
