C. Scott Southworth



Scott Southworth is a USGS geologist with expertise in mapping both bedrock and surficial units. He has led efforts to map, in detail, several national parks and we have relied on his understanding of bedrock geology in both the Great Smoky Mountains and the Shenandoah Parks as we interpret cosmogenic nuclide data.
