The recent cold spell didn’t deter Brock professor Francine McCarthy from getting outside. In fact, the colder it was, the better.
The Earth Sciences professor took to the outdoors to extract core samples from Crawford Lake near Milton. This field work from Crawford Lake will provide McCarthy and her fellow researchers with an opportunity to study changes in climate and in the lake itself over the past several thousand years, and to contribute to the geoarcheology of the region.
