Dredging up Augie’s past

Jul. 19, 2021

Dr Kelsey Arkle and her research team of geology students dig into Augustana’s past by coring mud from the Swanson Slough to explore the sediment, pollen, plants and other materials that wash into and pile up, leaving a continuous record of past environment, climate change and human influences. From left are Morgan Litwiler '22, Dr. Arkle, Cheyenne Bartelt '22, Claudia Vallejo '23, and Audriana Schneider '22.
