Fredesvinda Bonotan Dura (Environmental & Geological Science; Brooklyn College, NYC College of Technology)
Research Interests: Water Pollution and its Control, Eutrophication, Sustainability Assessment
Advisor: Brett Branco

Heather Glickman (Environmental & Geological Science; Hunter College)

Paula Gural (Environmental & Geological Science; Queens College)
Research Interests: River and Estuary Ecology am currently working on a carbonate outcrop in Dutchess Co. NY. It formed ~ 500 My ago in shallow marine environment when the North American continent was located ~ 30o south of the equator. I am focusing my study on the environments of deposition, later structural deformation, U-PB in carbonates to date defomational events,provenance as determined by zircons, and biogenic components.
