Jackson School Big Presence at 125th Annual GSA

Scientists and students from the Jackson School of Geosciences contributed more than 70 oral presentations and 30 posters to the Geological Society of America 125th Annual Meeting, held October 2013 in Denver.

Nearly 4,800 abstracts were presented at the meeting, which attracted more than 8,000 geoscientists from business, academia and government.

Among the Jackson School presenters were Stephen Laubach, a senior research scientist at the Bureau of Economic Geology, who presented a paper titled “Fault damage zone and core fracture porosity differs in adjacent sandstones owing to inhibited quartz accumulation on feldspar and lithic grain substrates,” and graduate student Jeffrey Senison who reported findings from his research titled “Geochemical indicators of municipal water influx into streamwater in the Bull Creek watershed, Austin, TX.”
