Dave Twitchell Leaves Woods Hole (Temporarily) for the University of Nevada

 previous story | next story

On September 7, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Dave Twichell left Woods Hole, MA, for Las Vegas, NV, where he will spend the next 8 months working at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).

Geophysical mapping in Lake Mead over the past 3 years has provided Dave with exciting information on turbidite sedimentation. He will be working on recently collected cores, as well as collecting additional cores in the lake. The collaborative research with geologists and geochemists from UNLV and St. Thomas University (Minneapolis, MN) led to the decision for Dave to go to Nevada to work on the cores rather than bringing the cores and collaborators to the USGS' Woods Hole Field Center.

Dave's presence in Woods Hole will be greatly missed. We wish him the best of luck in his research on his beloved turbidites and look forward to his return in May 2003.
