Ginger Barth
Ginger Barth joined the Western Region Coastal and Marine Geology team in August.
The Western Region Coastal and Marine Geology team welcomed the addition of Ginger Barth in August. Ginger is a marine geophysicist with extensive experience in seismic-reflection seismology. She has degrees from Texas A&M (B.S.) and Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (M.A. and Ph.D.), where she worked with John Mutter on studies of the structure and evolution of the East Pacific Rise and the Clipperton Fracture Zone. Ginger has more recently worked at Stanford University with Simon Klemperer and Norm Sleep, and at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where she taught reflection seismology with Casey Moore.

Ginger will be working under the auspices of the Law of the Sea project. Initially, she will collaborate with Dave Scholl (who has returned to the Coastal and Marine Geology team as an emeritus scientist) and Jon Childs on issues pertaining to methane-gas deposits and the sedimentary environment of the abyssal Bering Sea basin. Ginger is stationed in Menlo Park, CA. If you're in town, stop by her office (Rm. 1263 in Building 1) and welcome her.
