Three distinguished geoscientists from Southern Utah University will present their research at the 119th annual meeting of the Geological Society of America on Oct. 27-31, in Philadelphia.

Dr. Mark Colberg and SUU students Nina Fitzgerald and Jessica Williams, both senior geology majors from Cedar City, Utah, will present on a variety of themes including fossil research in Boston, Mass. and the geological composition of eastern Nevada and the Mojave Province. Approximately 6300 geoscientists are expected to attend.

Independent research is a key aspect of the geological experience at SUU with students boasting a 100 percent acceptance rate to graduate programs. Location is also a key strength of SUU’s Geology program. Situated in the greatest natural outdoor laboratory in North America, students enjoy field work in some of the most geologically-perfect lands in the nation.

Other students who participated in the research include Jennifer Bell, senior geology major from Santa Clara, Utah, Jonathan Boswell, SUU graduate in geology from St. George, Utah, Tawnya Cranney, senior geology major from Orem, Utah and Dustin Stalling, senior geology major from Cedar City, Utah.
