    Public invited to GeoDaze

    The campus community is invited to attend GeoDaze, an annual event featuring earth sciences research by UA undergraduate and graduate students.

    Presentations will occur today from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the North Ballroom of the Student Union Memorial Center. The event is free.

    The subjects covered in the 36 oral presentations and 26 posters include economic geography, geochemistry, geomorphology, geophysics, geoscience education, paleoclimatology, planetary geology and structural geology.

    Tekla Harms will deliver a keynote address tomorrow at 3 p.m. She is a geology professor at Amherst College who earned her doctorate in geosciences from the UA in 1986.

    She will speak on the formation, about 1.75 billion years ago, of Montana’s Tobacco Root Mountains.

    The event will end with a field trip Saturday to examine the Catalina granite exposed at the western base of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

    Ed McCullough, a professor emeritus of geosciences, and George Davis, a regents’ professor of geosciences and former UA provost, will lead the trip.

    Registration for the trip, which still had seats available yesterday, is available at earth.geo.arizona.edu/geodaze/08/.
