Poster #30: Annie Matzke – The Depositional History of the Bonneville Salt Flats from the Geochemical Analysis of Ostracodes

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Brenda Bowen

During my undergraduate research I spent time working with Jeremiah Bernau studying the Bonneville Salt Flats. We took samples from two cores from the salt flats and then took individual samples every ten cm. These samples were then processed and cleaned so that they could be sent out for carbon 14 dating and Strontium analysis. This information helped explained the depositional environment of the Salt Flats by giving us the age and the water source.
