Sarah Titus, professor of geology, recently published a paper with first-author Emily Ross ’17 and Ross’ graduate advisor, Jacqueline Reber. Their paper uses physical models—with silicone, sand and other materials—to understand the development of faults, with an eye towards explaining the behavior of the San Andreas fault in central California. Ross majored in studio art and geology at Carleton.
