Camping and Research with Professor Kelly MacGregor
Geology Professor Kelly MacGregor took a group of students to Montana this summer to study glaciers. Her current research focuses on understanding the role of glaciers in shaping alpine landscapes. She uses tools such as GPS, stream gauging stations, and good old-fashioned shovels to understand how glaciers behave over daily to annual timescales, and how they affect the rocky landscapes they occupy. Professor MacGregor also uses numerical models to simulate their role in creating the fantastic mountainous landscapes we see today.
