Dr. Rayburn will expose how researchers are in a position to get to the bottom of the complicated historical past of this procedure.
Dr. Rayburn is a professor within the SUNY New Paltz Geology Division, the place he focuses on geomorphology and environmental geology. His skilled analysis pursuits come with the exam of post-glacial lake sediments and the timing of deglaciation within the Hudson Valley and japanese New York.
