Office Hours with Kevin Yeager and Julia Johnson

In this pre-Thanksgiving episode of Office Hours, Kevin Yeager of Geology and Julia Johnson of English swing in to tell us about their work. Being a husband and wife team, there are interesting ways in which the research they each do intertwines! And then, before we go, Professor Johnson tells us all about the MFA in Creative Writing now available at UK!

Finding Faults: Inside Sean Bemis' Research

Sean Bemis put his hands together side by side to demonstrate two plates of the earth’s crust with a smooth boundary running between them. But that boundary is not always smooth and those plates do not always sit together neatly, which makes the earth’s crust a dynamic and complex surface.

Compassionate Science: Edward Lo

Graduate student Edward Lo studies the sediment patterns and hydrology of a region in Brazil called the Pantanal, which is the world’s largest freshwater wetlands. Often American geologists base their research on a region within the U.S. One of the many things that makes Lo and his work unique is his commitment to research abroad.

When The Levee Breaks: Derek Sawyer's Research Goes To Great Depths

For most Americans, levees are man-made engineering projects, rarely mentioned outside of the flooding that follows disasters like Hurricane Katrina.However, recent research conducted by Earth and Environmental Science (EES) Assistant Professor Derek Sawyer published in the journal “Geology” sheds new light on levees most of us never see – those built naturally by underwater rivers deep below the ocean’s surface.
