Four St. Lawrence University students will be presenting the results of their original research at the 40th annual Northeastern Section of the Geological Society of America, being held March 14-16 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Approximately 700 geoscientists are expected to attend the meeting.

The students, and their topics, are:

  • Angus A. McCusker '06, Buckland, MA -- "Geographic Information System (GIS) as a Research and Teaching Tool" (with Professor Frank Revetta, of SUNY Potsdam)
