Check out this story in a the recent Blue & Gold digital 'zine spotlighting Mallory Gerzan's work at USGS this summer and elsewhere. Mallory will be presenting some of her McNair-supported Kenya research at this year's GSA
Fellow SoilSedHuman lab member, Lance Stewart, recently tied the knot. The right photo above shows Lance in state quite natural for many grooms immediately after a wedding.
Congratulations to "SoilSedHead" lab member, Lance Stewart, on his upcoming graduation! Lance will be joining the Soil-Sed-Human lab this fall where he will be researching Tennessee River paleofloods.
Check out our latest publication (Stinchcomb et al., 2016) to learn more about a new model to reconstruct past climates using ancient soils (paleosols) and explore the how the model predicts precipitation and temperature here and below!
SedSoilHuman lab student, Lance Stewart, spends a week working with Baylor University's SQUID magnetometer, housed in Dan Peppe's lab. Lance was preparing and analyzing paleomagnetic samples collected from the Chalbi Desert in Northern Kenya. We hope to observe geomagnetic reversals that will help fix the Chalbi stratigraphy in time. Learn more here about SQUID magnetometers and Geomagnetic Reversals.

Ashley Casselberry (left) and Lance Stewart (right) were recognized last night at the annual McNair scholar banquet. Pictured here with their mentor (Gary Stinchcomb), Ashley and Lance are geoscience majors and McNair scholars working in the SedSoilHuman Lab. To learn more about their current and future work, check out the lab page! Congratulations, Ashley and Lance, for all of your superb efforts!
The sedsoilhuman lab had a good showing at this year's Kentucky Water Resources Annual Symposium in Lexington, KY with two poster presentations:
Buried soils are an important control on C storage along human-impacted floodplains in Kentucky, USA, Ashley Casselberry and Gary Stinchcomb, Dept. of Geosciences and Watershed Studies Institute, Murray State University
Buried soils are an important chemical interface controlling mineral weathering and solute gradients along river corridors, Gary Stinchcomb, Ashley Casselberry and Abbigail Smith, Dept. of Geosciences and Watershed Studies Institute, Murray State University
Below is a pick of Ashley discussing her work with scientists from the Daniel Boone National Forest, Dr. Claudia Cotton (soil scientist) and Jon Walker (hydrologist). Also, check out the sweet oola life VW van we spotted in the hotel parking lot.
...is a geoscience research lab in Murray, KY USA. The lab is directed by Gary Stinchcomb, an Assistant Professor of Geosciences at Murray State University who holds a joint appointment with the Watershed Studies Institute.
