Early Jurassic Earth System and Timescale (JET) Mochras Team did a site visit on 9 Nov. 2016 to Shell Island next to the hamlet of Llanbedr on Cardigan Bay, Wales. The JET team met at the British Geological Survey (BGS) on 10-12 Nov 2016. New data from the Toaracian to Pleinsbachian were presented and the team spent the Nov. 11 examining cores from Hole A.

Ken Miller and Greg Mountain received an award "Mid-Atlantic Offshore Carbon Storage Resource Assessment Project” from the Department of Energy through Battelle for $486,037 (9/1/2015-8/31/2018). This grant will support Stephen Graham to work on the seismic and well log correlations of the eastern George's Bank Basin and two (unnamed) students to work on core material from the GBB and Baltimore Canyon Trough. Congratulations Ken and Greg!

Kimberly Baldwin and Lindsey Lugrin successfully defended their Masters theses, "A 2D High-Resolution Seismic Study in the West Pacific Warm Pool on Eauripik Rise: Sediment Waves as a Direct Indicator of Long-Term Bottom Current Flow and Delta Progradation" (Baldwin) and "Channel Drainage Systems from the Early Miocene to the Present Day between Barnegat and Manasquan Inlets, New Jersey" (Lugrin). Currently, Kim works at the University of New Hampshire and Lindsey works at NJGWS. Congratulations Kim and Lindsey!
