Keyes / 105

This week’s GeoSeminar is Dr. Jim Hower from the University of Kentucky, who is a coal geologist at the Center for Applied Energy Research. Dr. Hower’s recent studies focus on the identification and recovery of Rare Earth Elements, or REEs, from mined coal deposits. He has published extensively on coal geology, coal characterization and petrography, and coal fly ash. He is the 2006 recipient of the Gilbert H. Cady Award from the Geological Society of America’s Energy Division, for his contributions to Coal Geology.
Dr. Hower will be speaking at 1:00 in Keyes 105, with refreshments available prior to the class meeting. If you’re interested in any aspect of coal geology, you can join us for lunch in the private dining room of Roberts from 12:00-12:45 on Friday, prior to his lecture.
