Earth Sciences professor digs in the dirt for clues to the past
Published on April 26 2011
John Menzies, professor of Earth Sciences at Brock, has been playing in the dirt for decades. That’s not an insult, but an honour.
His research centres on sediments left behind by ice sheets and glaciers and, in particular, subglacial sediments and landforms.
Part of this research involves the microscopic examination of sediments that have been impregnated with resin, then thin sectioned.
