Landscapes of Deep Time in the Red Earth of France: Research Training in Paleoclimate

Name (PI): 
Gerilyn “Lynn” Soreghan
Department/Organization: 
Geology and Geophysics
Summary and Designated Tasks: 

Were the tropical mountains of Pangea glaciated 300 Million years ago? How did tropical climate evolve as earth transitioned to ice-free conditions after the Late Paleozoic Ice Age? About 300 Million years ago, Earth was locked in an intense glaciation, the so-called “Late Paleozoic Ice Age.” The termination of that “icehouse” records Earth’s most recent example of a transition to an ice-free world. This research project focuses on detecting tropical climate conditions in the paleo-mountains of France during this key period of Earth history, and involves sedimentology of red bed and associated sediments from this time.

Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation

Name (PI): 
Dr. Susan Walden
Department/Organization: 
Office of Undergraduate Research
Summary and Designated Tasks: 

The Oklahoma Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (OK-LSAMP) is designed for students majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the OK-LSAMP program began in 1994 when Oklahoma institutions of higher education joined forces to significantly increase the recruitment, enrollment, and retention of underrepresented minority students in STEM disciplines. Students in the OK-LSAMP program are required to maintain continued full-time enrollment in eligible STEM programs, participate and contribute to OK-LSAMP activities, attend scholar meetings, receive ethics in research training, and participate in research activities 5-10 hours a week under the guidance of a faculty mentor.
