2012 GeoGrad Reunion

The Evolving Geosciences at Princeton MONDAY, A P R I L 3 0 – FR IDAY, M AY 4 , 2 0 1 2

Welcome Dear GeoGrads, It is with great pleasure that we welcome you back to campus for Princeton University’s first Graduate School departmental reunion! As this program highlights, a week of activities has been organized to enhance your return to Old Nassau. The conference features presentations and panel discussions by faculty from the Department of Geosciences as well as eminent graduate alumni; casual opportunities over lunch and dinner to network with and meet fellow alumni; and poster sessions highlighting current graduate student and postdoctoral research. Details for the three-day excursion in the Appalachian Mountains and the day trip to Sterling Hill Mining Museum can be found in these pages. A special thanks is extended to Ed Cotter *63, Laurel Goodell *83, Lincoln Hollister, Jeroen Tromp *92, and Don Wise *57 for their joint efforts in organizing Princeton University’s first reunion for GeoGrad alumni. I hope you enjoy your time reconnecting with old friends, colleagues and mentors, as well as revisiting favorite places on campus and hearing about today’s geosciences program at Princeton.

Best wishes, Bess Ward William J. Sinclair Professor of Geosciences Chair, Department of Geosciences

DINNER, Prospect House Garden Room

Field Trip SUSQUEHANNA CROSS-SECTION OF THE APPALACHIANS: FROM THE PIEDMONT TO THE COAL REGIONS Tuesday, May 1 DEPART PRINCETON, approximately 8 a.m. Bus departs from Baker Rink. Logistical Details: • Overnight stay in Lancaster, Pa., on Tuesday, May 1, and Lewisburg, Pa., on Wednesday, May 2. • Transportation and support will be provided compliments of Princeton’s Department of Geosciences. Geological and Cultural Details: The group will traverse a cross-section of the Appalachians from the Piedmont into the Valley and Ridge Province. The group also will get a glimpse of the Pennsylvania Dutch culture of Lancaster County. Stops have been chosen with mobility and time constraints in mind. First Half of Trip: Led by Don Wise *57, the group will travel across the Pennsylvania Piedmont, and into the Valley and Ridge. Geologic understanding of the region has deepened significantly in the past few years, especially as a result of many new radiometric and fossil dates that now allow separation in both time and space of multiple phases of deformation that swept progressively across the Piedmont. The geology will center on three major themes: • The early Paleozoic edge of Laurentia; • Thin-skinned nappe tectonics of the Taconian Orogeny in contrast to basement-involved, regional nappes of the Alleghanian Orogeny; and • Origins of the Pennsylvania Salient of the Appalachians. Second Half of Trip: Led by Ed Cotter *63, this portion of the trip will focus on stratigraphy and structures of the Valley and Ridge province, and work influenced by former Princeton faculty members Al Fischer, Franklyn Van Houten *41, John Maxwell *46 and Sheldon Judson ’40: • The Devonian Catskill formation showing Milankovitch coastal and fluvial cycles, with evidence of paleohydrology, paleosols and paleo-CO2; and • Bear Valley Strip Mine, the classic and spectacular exposure that documents six stages of Alleghanian deformation. Pennsylvania Dutch aspects will include: • The tourist extravaganza of Intercourse includes an Amish woodshop, a Mennonite and Amish quilt store, and/or a Mennonite kitchen store with samples and sales of preserved foods. • Roots, a nontourist, once-a-week auction with numerous outdoor vendors selling a variety of food, livestock, gadgets and other treasures.

Thursday, May 3 RETURN TO PRINCETON, approximately 6 p.m.
