Inside Gustavus (January 16, 2014)
Volume 46, Number 16
Laura Triplett (Geology and Environmental Studies) and four of her research students presented posters at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco in December. One poster reported progress on Laura's National Science Foundation-funded project studying silica transport in the Platte River, Nebraska. The other poster reported on her research group's findings about sediment transport and pollution in the Minnesota River watershed.
Recently, Larry Potts, Emeritus and Research Professor of Chemistry was coauthor of a paper titled "Analysis of the temporal performance of one versus on-line comprehensive two-dimensional liquid chromatography", in the Journal of Chromatography A (Elsevier): Lawrence W. Potts and Peter W. Carr, Journal of Chromatography A, 1310 (2013) 37 – 44. The subject was a comparison of the performance of 1 vs 2-dimensional optimized high performance LC methods, and expectations researchers can have in using them in designing methods for separating highly complex mixtures of samples such as metabolites and peptides. Larry will gladly provide a 5-minute back-of-the-envelope discussion of the ideas for the price of a cup of coffee.
JoNes VanHecke, Vice President of Student Affairs, co-authored a chapter titled "Assessing campus and divisional cultures" in the book Executive Transitions in Student Affairs: A Guide to Getting Started as the Vice President.
Provost and Dean of the College Mark Braun authored a chapter titled "The art and science of good decision making" in the book The Resource Handbook for Academic Deans, which was edited by former Gustavus faculty member Laura Behling.
