The geology faculty of Southern Utah University in Cedar City is sponsoring a new symposium series on southwestern geology which they hope to sponsor each spring. The first symposium will be held March 31 - April 2, 2011 and will concentrate on the Beaver Dam Mountains of southwest Utah and the Virgin Mountains of northwest Arizona and southeast Nevada.
During my years as an undergraduate at SUU (2004-2009), I devoted nine semester hours and over three years of my time to studying the metamorphic rocks of the Beaver Dams under the guidance of Dr. Mark Colberg. I feel particularly fortunate to have attended this university and to have these rocks in "my backyard."
Speakers are being invited from all over the country.
R. Ernest Anderson is slated to be the keynote speaker.
