Stories from Earth
Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Natural Sciences Inaugural Lecture- Rachel Beane
Thursday, March 7 7:30 pm
Kresge Auditorium

Fiery-volcanic eruptions, earth-shattering quakes, and continents on the move have forged the planet we call home. Take a journey from mid-coast Maine to Russia and New Zealand with geoscientist Rachel Beane. She will share captivating photos from the field, and from the microscope, as we explore the processes that have shaped our planet for millions of years. In so doing, we also will learn how the tiniest of minerals record some of Earth’s biggest stories.

Dr. Rachel Beane is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Natural Sciences in the Department of Earth and Oceanographic Science. With support from the National Science Foundation and Bowdoin College, she has conducted research on volcanic rocks in New Zealand and the western U.S., subduction zone metamorphic rocks in Russia, Kazakhstan and Greece, and igneous and metamorphic rocks in Maine.

Prof. Beane is associate dean for Academic Affairs at Bowdoin College for which her primary foci are faculty development and mentoring, and faculty diversity initiatives. She leads national professional development workshops for science educators through the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and On the Cutting Edge, an NSF funded project focusing on geoscience faculty development. She is recipient of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers Neil Miner teaching award for “exceptional contributions to the stimulation of interest in the Earth Sciences” and the Bowdoin College Sydney B. Karofsky teaching prize for her “ability to impart knowledge, inspire enthusiasm, and stimulate intellectual curiosity.” She is also a fellow of the Geological Society of America.
