E&ES research awards from Acadia University Research Fund

Three projects arising from the Earth and Environmental Science Department were funded from the Acadia University Research Fund for work this summer.

Dr. Nelson O'Driscoll will be conducting an examination of mercury distributon in mussel tissues and shells from the Minas Basin as a utility of mussel shells as biomonitors.

Dr. Cliff Stanley will be analyzing the dispersal of Li-bearing minerals in till, in southwest Nova Scotia.

Dr. Mo Snyder, in collaboration with Chelsea Gardiner and Wendy Robicheau, will be digging for Acadia in an attempt to rediscovering the first College Hall using ground-penetrating radar.

Each project was awarded $5000. Congratulations to all researchers!
