James Ebert, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, is a coauthor on a paper recently published in Lethaia. The article is entitled “A new, high-precision CA-ID-TIMS date for the ‘Kalkberg’ K-bentonite (Judds Falls Bentonite).” The paper reports a new radiometric age (417.61 +/- 0.12 million years) for an important volcanic ash bed in the limestones of central New York. In recent years, previously published ages from this ash have been used to calibrate a portion of the Geologic Time Scale. The paper also presents new data on the fossil-based age of the ash. Other authors on the paper were from the University of Iowa, Boise State University, Ohio State University at Lima, and Ghent University (Belgium).
Barbara Kahl, Theatre Department, recently completed the third chow of the summer season at Chenango River Theatre, a professional theatre in Greene, NY, under annual contract with Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the union for professional actors and stage managers in the U.S, featuring professional actors from around the country.
