Will Amidon Awarded NSF Grant

Will Amidon (Geology) has been awarded funding through the National Science Foundation’s RUI mechanism for two years of research with collaborators at the University of California at Santa Barbara. The project, titled Reconstructing Mid-Miocene-to-Recent Paleo-Erosion Rates in the Eastern Andes, Northern Argentina, will involve five undergraduate researchers in investigating whether climate oscillations can be linked to changes in erosion rates over millions of years.
