Under the coordination and supervision of Dr. Nelson O'Driscoll, 8 students completed the second-year Environmental Science field school this year.
Earth and Environmental Science at Acadia offers programs leading to B.Sc. degrees in Environmental Science, Geology and Environmental Geoscience, and M.Sc. degrees in Geology, Environmental Science and Applied Geomatics.
With the sun setting into the Gulf of St. Lawrence, field school 2019 comes to a conclusion. Having experienced torrential rain in Elderkin Brook, frigid winds off the sea at Georgeville, and brilliant sunshine on the barrens at Whitehead, the students can safely say they experienced the full range of conditions as they learned mapping techniques.
Acadia graduate student Jackson Malone has been awarded a Geological Society of America Graduate Student Research Grant to study biogeochemical cycling and its connection to mass-extinction and glaciation at the Ordovician-Silurian boundary.
