The Department was show-cased by a 6-minute video created by Webs Edge. Ltd. The video was shown throughout the GSA meeting at mobile video kiosks as well as on television channels at all the major convention hotels.

  • Terrestrial Paleoclimatology
  • Solid Earth and Applied Geophysics
  • Applied Petroleum Studies
  • Water Research
The video includes narrative from several Baylor Geology faculty members and two graduate students and showcases the excellent teaching and research facilities in the Baylor Sciences Building.
