Sarah Lewis (Brown)



Sarah Lewis (Brown) spent her time at Ritterbush Pond. There she collected numerous cores of lake sediment and processed those cores at UVM and at Livermore Lab where we did the radiocarbon dating. She interpreted a detailed record of paleo-storms from sandy interbeds so well preserved in Ritterbush Pond.
