— Student research team, Summer 2014

In March volcanology research results, obtained by six students working with Prof. Grosfils during the previous summer, were presented at the 2015 Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, TX. Work performed by Robby Goldman (’15) and Jack Albright (’16) was shared via “Ring Fault and Caldera Formation: Insights Provided by Three-Dimensional Elastic Finite Element Models,” while Erin Barry (’17), Annika Deurlington (’16), Amanda Yin (’17) and Michael Wucher (’17) helped advance our understanding of subsurface magmatism via the presentation “Using Map-Derived Hoop Strain and Elastic Models of Reservoir Formation to Quantify the Degree of Dike Emplacement at Giant Radial Lineament Systems on Venus.” Our tradition of celebrating student achievement and performance at the conference continued, with attending students joining other Sagehen alumni at the conference for some conversation and reminiscing over refreshments: while planetary geology is a specialized field to be sure, it is a lot of fun to see the cadre of Sagehen enthusiasts involved growing steadily over time!
