Two members of the Angelo State University Department of Physics have been invited to make research presentations at the upcoming 2008 Joint Annual Meeting of five major national geology, agricultural and Earth science societies Oct. 5-9 in Houston.
Dr. Joseph Satterfield, associate professor of geology, and Dr. Alexander Stewart, assistant professor of geology, will represent ASU at the meeting. Satterfield will present his research on “Folding on the Flanks of the Southernmost Laramide Uplift, Big Bend Region, Texas” and Stewart will make a presentation titled, “Candy Bar Analogy: An Inquiry Approach to Introducing Relative Age and the Four Principles of Stratigraphy.”
The meeting marks the first time the Geological Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and the Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies have conducted a joint national conference. About 10,000 scientists from throughout the U.S. are expected to attend the meeting, which will also celebrate the International Year of the Planet.
