Our students are doing fantastic work! From assessing live coral cover and carbonate production in the waters off Belize to interpreting seismic in Arctic Alaska, W&L Geology students are learning and applying geoscience theories, methods, and skills to research questions relevant today.
Everyone did a phenomenal job with their presentations. Congratulations to you all.
