This course is designed to introduce students to the skills needed to produce effective visual presentation of data, interpretations, concepts, and so on in a range of formats (hard copy prints, posters, PowerPoint presentations). The basics of Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and Golden Grapher (free demo) software programs will also be learned. The Adobe Creative Cloud Suite is available to all UA students at no cost. Students will need a computer capable of running these programs and a webcam/microphone for Zoom class meetings.

Geo. Res. on Climate Change

Prof. William Lambert – Summer II

Must get permission from Dr. Keene to sign up

The main goal of this course is to introduce undergraduate students in the Blount Scholars Program to laboratory techniques in Geological Sciences with hands-on experience of sample collection and analysis. Specific to this project, students will help measure the isotopic chemistry of calcite “growth” layers of a small stalagmite from Cuba. These data will be explored in the context of the geologic record and climate change.
