Incredible! #Repost @cofcnaturalhistory with @get_repost ・・・ Student volunteers and researchers revealing the past - as recently highlighted by @postandcourier! There is so much to do in order to keep CCNHM running that we rely on a small corps of student volunteers, docents, and junior scientists to maintain CCNHM as a center of natural history at @collegeofcharleston. Visitors are most familiar with our student docents - but may not be as familiar with the behind the scenes activities. Our volunteers are primarily students and retirees, and are responsible for cleaning fossils off, reassembling broken fossils, and producing mounts that keep the fossils safe during long term storage. Geology Junior Suzanne Grantham (top) is currently working on reassembling a fossil dolphin - well, it's actually two dolphins that died near eachother, and their bones became fragmented and the fragments mixed together. (...fun) We have one student researcher at present: Bailey Fallon (bottom), a junior in Biology, who is studying fossil leatherback sea turtles from the Charleston area, and has already had her first research manuscript go through peer review! Next semester Suzanne is considering joining the research team, as is another student, Nathan McCuen - they will be studying South Carolina cetaceans and mosasaurs (respectively).

#Repost @americangeophysicalunion with @get_repost ・・・ To round out women’s History Month, AGU is celebrating the geoscience discoveries and advances made by women. Here’s the second of ten: Inge Lehman discovers Earth’s inner core is solid in 1936, which helps explain how the core generates Earth’s magnetic field. #agu100 #women #womenshistorymonth#womenempowerment #geoscience #science#womeninstem #earth #discovery
#Repost @usinterior with @get_repost ・・・ One of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes in North America, Canyon de Chelly National Monument is a place of natural beauty and living legends. A dry climate, sheltering cliffs and the watchful eyes of local residents protect the distinctive architecture, artifacts and rock imagery. Completely within the Navajo Nation in #Arizona, the park’s signature vista is looking down at Spider Rock, an 825-foot-tall sandstone spire that got its name from the Navajo story of the Spider Woman. Rangers and #Navajo guides share these stories to connect visitors to this special place.
