The Department of Earth and Environmental Science is very pleased to welcome Dr. Morgan Snyder and Prof. Dewey Dunnington to the teaching faculty for the fall term.

The first part of Senior Field School has concluded in Cape Breton Island. Offered by Sandra Barr and Rob Raeside, the students mapped an area in the Cape Breton Highlands and enjoyed lots of waterfalls and mountain views.

Dr. Sandra Barr was approached by a Nova Scotia Dept of Energy and Mines geologist to identify the source of the paving stones used for the old Halifax tram lines. It turns out the material was most likely artificial, possibly recycled steel foundry slag.
