The Study of Glacial Geology
A conversation with Gettysburg College Environmental Studies professor Sarah Principato.
Principato received her bachelor's degree in Geology from Mount Holyoke College, her master's degree in Geology from the University of Wisconsin, and her PhD from the University of Colorado also in Geology. The primary focus of her research focuses on glacial geology and climate change during the late Pleistocene and Holocene. She has often used Gettysburg students as research assistants in Iceland and Maine as well as in her laboratory on campus. She teaches courses in the Environmental Studies department on Earth System Science, Natural Catastrophes and Geologic Hazards, Glacial Geology and Records of Climate Change, Geomorphology, and a first year seminar about the Geology of National Parks.
