David Mickelson

Dave is a glacial geologist with whom we worked sampling outcrops in Wisconsin along and behind the glacial margin in a project with Pat Colgan. Work on these outcrops showed that cold, near margin Laurentide ice was not effective at eroding rock. Inheritance mattered in this continental setting.
