There are many opportunities to do research with a faculty member, and the results of the research may be presented at a local or national meeting, such as the Kentucky Academy of Science or the Geological Society of America. Current and ongoing projects include:

  • Paleontologic research on Jurassic fossils at the Aaron Scott site in Utah
  • Exploring karst hydrology utilizing dye tracing
  • Using electrical resistivity to locate unknown sections at Mammoth Cave
  • Using sequential LiDAR to monitor and catalog recently active landslides in Kenton and Campbell counties in Northern Kentucky
  • Cave Mapping at Carter Caves, KY
  • Geophysical surveying of landslides in Northern Kentucky
