Pete Ryan Whiting Fellowship: Grenada, Spain

Pete Ryan (Geology) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled International Perspectives on Environmental Geochemistry. He will spend two months during his 2012-2013 academic leave at the Instituto Andaluz de Ciencias de la Tierra (Andalucian Institute of Earth Sciences) in Granada, Spain. The main purpose of his trip is to become immersed in cutting-edge research that he can apply to classes he teaches at Middlebury, particularly Environmental Geochemistry, and can use in advising  senior thesis research and other courses.
