- Sherrerd Prize for Distinguished Teaching - John Brady John Brady Brady has taught geology at Smith since he arrived in 1975 following graduate work at Harvard University. His research interests range from the evolution of metamorphic rocks in Montana and Greece to atomic diffusion measurements -- "cooking rocks"-- in the experimental petrology lab. He tries to develop hands-on, inquiry-based activities for his courses that will help students learn complex concepts. These activities have led him to be a co-organizer of National Science Foundation-funded workshops about teaching mineralogy and petrology. Brady's favorite place to teach is outside. Outcrops across western Massachusetts provide the classroom and content for his first year seminar, Geology in the Field.

- Public Lecture—A Comet on Earth: Results from the Stardust Mission Lecture Date: Tuesday, August 29, 2006.The Stardust mission returned from a 6-year voyage in January of 2006. During the mission it swept through the tail of comet Wild 2 (pronounced Vilt), collecting the microscopic particles streaming from it. These particles were collected in a very low density material called aerogel. The satellite then took 2 years to return to Earth. The payload, jettisoned from the satellite, re-entered the atmosphere and gently landed in the Utah desert. Since January researchers have started the process of extracting the particles from the aerogel and using an extensive array of techniques to measure such things as elemental and isotopic abundance, mineralogy and petrology. We at SLAC have been using an X-ray Microprobe to determine the amount of different elements that are present in these particles. Please join us for a preliminary look at the results of the Stardust mission. Lecturer: Sean Brennan, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
- A Tale of Two Rocks/Altered Granite Petrology Project highlighting how to make a thin section, a petrographic ***ysis and an original composition. Original composition (lyrics by Travis Louvain and Nick Fedorchuk) was performed by Travis Louvain feat. Nick Fedorchuk, and to the tune of Backstreet Boys's "Larger than Life" originally written by Max Martin, Kristian Lundin, and Brian Littrell. Songs used in the background (in order, "As long as you love me" written by Max Martin, "Show me the meaning of being lonely" written by Max Martin and Herbert Crichlow, and "I want it that way" written by Max Martin and Andreas Carlsson) were performed by the Backstreet Boys and were used for educational purposes. These articles were not directly used but were incorporated into the research involved with the identification and discussion of the thin section report.

- Rock (ItemSea) More Info At: In geology, rock or stone is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids. The Earth's outer solid layer, the lithosphere, is made of rock. In general rocks are of three types, namely, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. The scientific study of rocks is called petrology, and petrology is an essential component of geology. Rocks are generally classified by mineral and chemical composition, by the texture of the constituent particles and by the processes that formed them. These indicators separate rocks into igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. They are further classified according to particle size. The transformation of one rock type to another is described by the geological model called the rock cycle. Sample of igneous gabbro Igneous rocks are formed when molten magma cools and are divided into two main categories: plutonic rock and volcanic. Plutonic or intrusive rocks result when magma cools and crystallizes slowly within the Earth's crust (example granite), while volcanic or extrusive rocks result from magma reaching the surface either as lava or fragmental ejecta (examples pumice and basalt) Sedimentary sandstone with iron oxide bands Sedimentary rocks are formed by deposition of either clastic sediments, organic matter, or chemical precipitates (evaporites), followed by compaction of the particulate matter and cementation during diagenesis. Sedimentary rocks form at or near the Earth's surface. Mud rocks ...

The sample will be sent to the Astronomy Department, where tests will be run on it to help determine the composition of clouds of space dust. --Summer 08 University of Missouri, Columbia
