Dan Maxbauer, Assistant Professor of Geology, will receive funding from the Keck Geology Consortium, supported by National Science Foundation EAR, to host a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project in summer 2021 at the Carleton campus. His project, “Carbon sequestration by enhanced silicate weathering in agricultural soils,” enables Prof. Maxbauer to mentor four students in conducting an agricultural field trial to test the efficacy of rock dust amendments, with a focus on evaluating carbon sequestration, crop yields, and soil health.
