The 59th KGS annual seminar was held on May 14th
The theme of the KGS annual seminar was Elements of Change: Innovative Applications of Geochemistry. Dr. Marc Caffee, a professor of physics and director of the Purdue Rare Isotope Measurement Lab at Purdue University, was the keynote speaker for the seminar. Caffee, a leader in cosmogenic isotope geochemistry, presented the 2020 Donald C. Haney Distinguished Lecture titled "Cosmic-ray-produced nuclides: tracers for terrestrial and extra-terrestrial geologic processes."
This year the seminar was held virtually to help keep our attendees save and healthy. Over 200 people registered for the event. In addition to professionals working in Kentucky, several people from out-of-state and outside of the field of geology also attended.
