Welcome to Ramblings of a Geologist. Here, I will ...
1) Write about my senior project analyzing Lake Erie sediments, which will hopefully clarify my thoughts. Lake Erie's history is fascinating but not well-understood. Even people who have been studying it their whole careers aren't sure what's going on.
2) Figure out a good research project to do while I'm working on Lake Tanganyika (Tanzania) this summer. I'll be there for 7 weeks, living in a field station with American and African students.
3) Explore potential subjects that I might specialize in during graduate school. I've applied to several oceanography/lake studies programs, and will soon have to choose a more specific research path.
I will also throw in some thoughts on science and nature and other subjects that will inevitably come up as I go.
