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.

Seeing No Limitations: Peter Price

One of the oldest traditions in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences is its Geology Field Camp. Those who have been a part of this tradition never forget their experiences, the bonds they formed, or what they learned. 
 
University of Kentucky alumni Peter Price was one of those lucky enough to participate in the Geology Field. We sat down with Price at a Field Camp reunion where he talked about his own personal experience at the camp and why his time at UK was so crucial to pursuing his life goals.

Testing Your Mettle: Michael Borque

One of the oldest traditions in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences is its Geology Field Camp. Those who have been a part of this tradition never forget their experiences, the bonds they formed, or what they learned. 
 
One such participant is University of Kentucky alumni Michael Borque. We caught up with Borque at a Geology Field Camp reunion where he discussed how the hands-on experience provided at the camp uniquely prepared him for his future.

The Curse of Rafinesquina: A Prehistoric Mystery with Rebecca Freeman

All over Kentucky, fossilized brachiopods are common. Rebecca Freeman, a lecturer in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, studies brachiopods and how they interacted with their prehistoric environments according to the fossil record. When I interviewed her about a recent line of research that identified a previously unknown species of brachiopod, I also got a ghost story from Lexington, Kentucky.
