Abstract Garrels joined the Northwestern University faculty as an instructor in geology in 1941. In 1944 he was promoted to assistant professor of geology and geography. This title was changed in 1946 to assistant professor of geology. Garrels was promoted to associate professor of geology in 1949. From 1952 to 1955 Garrels was chief of the solid state group, geochemistry and petrology branch, U.S. Geological Survey. In the latter year he joined the faculty of Harvard University as associate professor...
Overview The records of the Department of Geology include departmental correspondence files, subject files, and grant and research proposal files.
Abstract The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Research Grant was a six year project to study the application of statistical techniques to remotely-sensed data for the purposes of lunar mapping. Using statistical analysis, Northwestern geologists profiled the composition, physical properties, and surface configurations of selected test sites in Michigan and California. This series consists of an incomplete run of periodically-issued status and special subject reports as well as a copy of the...
Abstract This series, comprising three boxes, includes a small variety of master's theses and doctoral dissertations written by graduate students in the Department of Geological Sciences. These theses and dissertations span the years from 1960 to 1973. The series does not form a complete record of graduate work sponsored by the Department during these years. Rather, these theses and dissertations mainly represent some of the work sponsored by E.H. Timothy Whitten, professor in the Department.
