Steve Esling, Lecturer

Geology

Associate Professor Emeritus

Education:

  • B.S. 1975, Illinois State University
  • M.S. 1982, University of Iowa
  • Ph.D. 1984, University of Iowa

Research Interests:

Steven P. Esling blends his background in mathematics and geology with his interests in hydrogeology and Quaternary stratigraphy.  His efforts have led to studies quantifying erosion rates in strip mine spoils, assessing the impact of agricultural drainage wells on shallow bedrock aquifers, determining the effect of underground refuse disposal on regional groundwater flow systems, and investigating the migration of contaminant plumes through shallow aquifers.

Sue M. Rimmer, Research Professor

Geology

Education

  • B.S. 1975, Southern Illinois University
  • M.S. 1978, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  • Ph.D. 1985, Penn State University

Research Interests:

My research currently focuses on five main areas: 1) biogeochemical cycles in organic-rich sediments; 2) controls on stable isotope composition of organic matter (OM) and interpretation of C and N isotope records in organic-rich sediments and coals; 3) linkages between OM and past atmospheric composition; 4) coal maturation and the role of heating rate (contact metamorphism vs. burial maturation); and 5) maceral separation and geochemistry.
