On November 4, the Coastal and Marine Geology team (CMG) in the Western Region was pleased to welcome Laura Zink Torresan as the new webmistress for the team’s Web site. Laura is no stranger to CMG, having been affiliated with the team since 1995.

Laura earned her undergraduate degree in geology from Middlebury College (VT) in 1989 and began her career with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in 1990, working for the now defunct Sedimentary Processes Branch. In 1995, she began work as a contractor for CMG; soon thereafter, she helped launch the "Access USGS—San Francisco Bay and Delta" Web site. During the 1997-98 El Niño season, Laura helped Rex Sanders set up a special El Niño Web server. She has provided GIS and graphic-illustration support for various team projects, with a special emphasis in recent years on Web-page creation and Web-site design.

Welcome, Laura!
