Geology Grad Donates to LUECI

Land Use and Environmental Change Institute (LUECI) Director Mark Brenner (center right), accompanied by geology faculty David Hodell (center left) and Jason Curtis (right), receives a $25,000 check from Gary Myers (left). Myers, who sits on the college's development council, graduated from CLAS in 1974 with a BS in geology. His donation will fund development of a Kullenberg sediment coring system and coring platform for the Florida Institute of Paleoenvironmental Research at UF. Lake sediment cores are important archives of paleoenvironmental information and are used to study, among other topics, past climate and vegetation, impacts of human land use and shifts in lake water quality. The new rig will enable retrieval of sediment cores from deep lakes and will provide important new field capabilities at UF.
