UWO scientists reveal geosciences research results

Professors at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh do more than stand behind podiums talking about scientific principles. Eric Hiatt and Jennifer Wenner, geology professors at UW Oshkosh, presented their research at the Geological Society of America’s (GSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition from Oct. 31 through Nov. 3 in Denver, where almost 6,000 scientists were expected to attend.

Discovery of early ocean life

Hiatt described what he and an international team of scientists discovered about the interactions of early life and the oceans.

“We presented the discovery of the earliest bacteria directly involved in cycling nutrients in nearshore marine sediments 2 billion years ago,” Hiatt said.
