A 750-million-year-old fossil discovered by geoscientist Phoebe Cohen may hold clues to how life has changed the earth—and vice versa. Following up on work done by scientists in the 1970s, Cohen and a fellow Harvard University graduate school student traveled to the Yukon in 2007 to study rock formations and found a veritable goldmine of
Boulder Thoughts: Decoding the World through Geoscience Rónadh Cox, Chair of Geosciences & the Maritime Studies Program, tells you everything you ever wanted to know about decoding the world through geoscience. This correspondent is a fan of the pun that is ‘boulder.’ That’s the power of Williams Thinking right there.
Recently, many members of the Geosciences Faculty took a field trip to the Stetson-Sawyer construction site to do what they love – examine rocks. In particular, they were interested in the ledge that has been the subject of great attention and the source of a tremendous amount of noise both on campus and throughout town. Here
